If life were perfect and there weren't things like bills or dental care, you'd use ALL of your money to TREAT YO' SELF. But as it stands now . . . well, we're still carving out a decent amount of cash for that very important purpose.
According to a new study, you'll spend an average of $143,280 in your lifetime to treat yo' self.
Here's how that breaks down. We spend an average of $199 every month on things that aren't essential AT ALL in our lives . . . but that we really want. That can mean anything from a candy bar or a new iPhone to concert tickets or a trip.
That adds up to $2,388 per year . . . and over approximately 60 years of adult life, it comes out to $143,280.
The study also found, stereotypically, that women are three times more likely than men to spend money on massages and spa treatments . . . and men are more likely to spend money on cars and new technology.
