According to several news sources – This year’s Black Friday yielded over 24% more sales than last year. $11.40 billion was spent by American consumers in one day.
This coming one day after a family meal that on averages exceeds 1500 calories per plate and costs $300-$800 per family to prepare.
But it doesn’t stop there – January brings the most expensive party of the year. Club entry fees range everywhere from $25 to $25,000 (don’t believe me: click here).
We then keep the party rolling to February’s main event – Valentine’s Day. Between flower sales, diamond sales and sales from pricey dinners the average American spends about $700 to “show their love”.
If you need a moral to sum up this post, God help you.
