Kicker: Drunk shopping


NICK EICHER, HOST: Americans have plenty of problems. But now the comparison shopping site Finder-dot-com says we the people have a new one: drunk shopping.

AUDIO: He likes it. (forlorn meow) I know he likes it. 

According to Finder’s 2018 survey, the average American spent nearly 4-hundred-50-dollars in inebriated shopping sprees.

That’s up from just over $200 last year. Which means the problem is growing.

And it’s worse for men: their spending is twice what women spend.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
