Women Will Spend 8 Years of Their Lives Shopping


Or two years, depending on who's doing the research.

So, according to the these researchers, the average woman will shop for 25,184 hours and 53 minutes over a period of 63 years. Did they really need to break it down like this?

It's not all shoe-shopping, although, since women are supposed to look good all the time, shopping for appearance related products takes up a substantial amount of time. Women are also shopping for food for their families, buying basics, and trying to find bargains.

My favorite part of the research? One reader's comment: "Yeah, all very interesting, but is there a similar study about how many hours men spend in the pub!"

Giggle Girls, discuss.
