It should come as no surprise to learn people often do irrational things when they’re drunk.
But overspending while shopping?
A study released Wednesday reveals Americans spent nearly $40 billion while drunk shopping in 2018.
Of that figure, 52 percent was spend on food
43.22 percent was spent on shoes and clothing
and 43.22 percent was spent on cigarettes.
Other items people bought while under the influence include cars, vacations and even a peacock.
Isolating it by state South Carolina respondents spent an annual average of $700 per person on stuff while they were drunk.
The data, released by Finder.com and Pureprofile, was gleaned from a survey of 2,100 adults.
