Blog: Are men spending more than women?

Katie Smith | 23 May 2011

Men are spending more on impulse buys but not when it comes to clothing, according to recent research by Npower. A survey of more than 2,000 customers found that the average Brit is expected to spend more than GBP70,000 (US$112,600) on impulse buys over a lifetime.

Although research showed that men spend more overall, statistics show that women spend more on clothes than men. Hardly surprising when our wardrobes are bursting out...

38.8% of women say that clothes are a regular impulse buy for them compared to 16.25% of men. Clothes come second in women's top impulse buys whilst it appears fifth on the list for men. And 22.97% of women confessed they make most of their impulse buys in clothes shops compared to 15.37% of men.

Many women like to show their clothes off on a night out - but when it comes to confessing that they have bought to their partner, it's a different story. 33% of girls admit they don't bother telling them about their recently purchases. And as a result a fifth of couples argue regularly about overspending.

Moral of the story...never tell your partner what you have bought ladies!
