Going shopping after heartbreak is bad for your bank balance. Researchers found that women who head to the malls to cheer themselves up after ending a relationship spend more money than on any other shopping trip. The study looked at more than 2,000 women, and found that spending money on payday came in second to heartbreak, and spending while window shopping or browsing online came in third. The research also found that nine in ten women admit the mood they are in during their shopping trip can affect how much they end up spending/buying. Also more than half avoid the shops altogether if they are in a certain mood because they know they will end up over-spending.
Slacker says Steve and him would go on “Man Sprees” together and go shopping. He says it’s good to go with each other because they wouldn’t ever go somewhere wearing the same cloths. Slacker says whenever he goes to Steve’s house he always sees new things that happen to be brass just hanging out. He says after a break up, he flew to Mexico and then almost bought a time share! Slacker says if he bought the time share he would have regretted it.
Steve buys man things from eBay, like tools, tires and Tonka trucks. He says he doesn’t know where to put the brass items or how to hang them up.
