How Normal Is Your Spending?

As previously mentioned, Glamour got seriously savvy with its June issue and collected some hard numbers about the spending habits of most women. The one finding that came as a surprise to me is the number of women who don't talk about spending with their partner, but a couple of them actually made me feel validated in my own habits — particularly the one about eating out as the hardest spending habit to break. Do you see yourself in any of these numbers?

  • Forty percent of women say they've never talked about their spending habits with their partner
  • Fifteen percent of women put everyday purchases on credit
  • Fifty-five percent of women younger than 30 consider themselves bargain hunters
  • Thirty-six percent of women say they spend more than they can afford — at least sometimes
  • Forty-one percent of women ages 17 to 26 spend more than $100 on a pair of jeans
  • Forty-nine percent of women say eating out or getting takeout is the hardest spending habit to break
  • $450 is the average amount that a young single woman making about $34,000 spends on alcohol each year
