Far from being a rhetorical question, this was the subject of a recent study conducted in the UK. The results are pretty interesting if you ask me – the only thing really positive in this is that there’s no real barrier between women and men when it comes to spending. Finally women are equal to men. Somewhat.
Involving 3,000 people, the Sheila’s Wheels home insurance study pointed the amount spent by the average woman on her appearance: $1,450 ($37 lingerie, $43 skirt, $73 shoes, $32 top, $55 cardi, $544 jewelry, $109 watch, $210 bag $153 contents within, $153 mobile phone). And men, you’ll ask, hiding your head between your shoulders – well, men actually spent around $1,300 (and there he’s got cheap jeans, cheap tees and nice mobile phone). I don’t know about you, but from where I stand, it looks like women spend their money far more wisely than men… Don’t they? (SW via NL, photo PB)
