Do women Tend to Overspend? You Be The Judge!

Hey readers

This is just a small incident I decided to share with you guys and I want everyone to be the judge ok it's just for fun!


So maybe 2 weeks or so ago I was sent to the dollar store to buy some paper towels and paper plates. Easy enough right? well I go to this dollar plus store a little further then the regular dollar store up the street because the quality of their merchandise is a bit better. With that said you know their stuff is more than a dollar but I went inside anyway, and it was supposed to be a quick 1,2,3 and out of the store. I looked and looked for the paper plates and the paper towels but they were not in the same spot, so in my quest I see a meat tenderizer that I was dying for and put it in the basket.

I also spot a potato masher I always wanted and put it in the basket, and a new big umbrella I wanted to replace, and a few bottles of dish liquid. Down a second and third aisle, I saw a few colors of nail polish that I didn't have and put those in the basket, along with a few lip pencils and a brand name eyeshadows as well. So I go to the checkout line and the woman rung all the items up and guess how much it was? a little over 27 dollars. I thanked her and left the store and on my way home I realized I went for two items that was supposed to be 2 or 3 dollars and spent 27 dollars instead, and GUESS WHAT?   ( I FORGOT THE PAPER TOWELS AND PAPER PLATES!)


Lol ;)       So with that said, do women overspend?      Lol ;)

Lol, I just thought it was the funniest thing ever. I know with grocery shopping, I now take a calculator and make sure I don't overspend.
