All those impulse buys can really add up, but you probably didn’t realize just how much. According to a new survey, the average American makes 156 impulse purchases a year.  And over the course of our life, we’ll spend 324 thousands dollars on stuff we weren’t planning to buy. Here’s the top five:

1.  Food and groceries, 71% of us do it.  And 3 out of 4 Americans say they’ve bought candy at the register before.

2.  Clothing, 53%.

3.  Household items, 33%.

4.  Takeout food and delivery, 29%.

5.  Shoes, 28%. (Let’s get ’em!)
