Americans Spring Shopping Tendencies

Hey neighbors!

I am still not sure spring is actually here.  I mean we keep going from pretty cold, to short sleeve weather, to severe thunderstorms, and then cold and wet.  It would be nice to even out just a little.  Anyway, I am wondering about your spring shopping habits.  Are you one of those who goes spring shopping for new shoes, clothes and/or accessories?  Or do you just pull out some clothes you had stored away for winter and then you are ready to go?

Recently I saw an article about a company selling a pair of jeans, spattered in artificial mud for $425. Now, I am pretty sure none of my neighbors has purchased a pair of mud spattered pants for $425, but what do you spend on your spring shopping.  It was estimated in a fashion survey, that percentage wise the average spent on a pair of shoes was $51-$100.  Do you fit in there?  Do you spend more, or are you more frugal?  And it the survey also stated that the average is for a woman to own 6-10 pairs of shoes.  Of course it shows that men generally own less shoes then women.  LOL!!



Here is a question for you.  Have you ever hid a clothing purchase from your spouse?  According to this survey women are more likely to hide a clothing purchase than their male counterparts.

I was surprised to find that most women pay under $50 for clothing additions each season.  I mean, I do, but I have a tendency to only shop sales, clearance and thrift store or resale shops.  The survey even broke it down into regions.  See if you are average for where you live.


Have any great spring, clothing, shopping tips?  Be sure to share them with us in the comments!  Thanks for visiting with us today.  See you soon!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
