Shopping has grown beyond an activity done to replace or buy a necessary item, it has become a hobby! Shocking statistics have identified such shifts in human behavior. According to a post by a website known as Becoming Minimalist this hobby is seen in different statistics of an average American like, an average woman spends 24000 minutes in a year or 8.5 years in a lifetime for this activity, $100b is spent more on jewelry than is spent on higher education, malls outnumber high-schools in America, also an average of 95% of people especially in their teenage years and adulthood claim it is some sort of therapy.
Others confessed that buying items made them feel better than going to the gym, while Forbes reported that almost 63% of Americans have less than half a thousand dollars to cover for emergency bills. You can only wonder what is responsible for such behavioral change. Could it be in the pleasure derived in shopping, or does this have anything to do in particular with the shops mostly visited? Another post revealed that home industries have increased beyond twice their original volume in the early part of the millennium.
