YourTango just reported that The New York Times discovered that most single women spend money on necessities, rather than on clothing, makeup, and everything Carrie Bradshaw. In other words, it’s a modern-day myth that single women spend like Carrie. YourTango reports, “In fact, single women spend less than 5 percent of their income on clothing, haircuts, manicures, and the like. According to the ‘Women at Work’ report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, they spent the bulk of their funds on shelter. The second costliest expenditure is transportation, then food, utilities, healthcare, and entertainment. Apparel and services fall last on that list.”
What I want to know is, regardless if you’re single or taken, what do you do with your extra recreational money? This is money that’s left over from rent, car payments, basic food shopping, bills, etc. If I had to break it down, I probably spend it equally on good food and beauty treatments.
