Wives spend more than husbands on groceries.

December 13, 2009

On December 31, add up all the grocery receipts that you signed during the year, and all the receipts that your husband signed for groceries. Assuming that the number of items ‘average out,’ chances are that your total bill be higher than his. You spent more money for the same items than he did. In general, men get more ‘bang for the buck’ than women, and rich people get more ‘bang for the buck’ than poor people. You’d think it would be the other way around.

The truth is that both men and women don’t get the ‘bang for the buck’ they could. The reason is that neither was trained in ‘comparative shopping.’ Our society is a money wasting  ‘coupon society,’ not a value oriented society.

My suggestion is: Listen to CH every day. He’s got some good tips (this is not a commercial).
