More than half of Americans turn to retail therapy to lift their mood

From the article:

One out of five (nearly 19 percent) participants said to improve their mood after a bad day at work, followed by more than 14 percent who shop after bad news and more than 12 percent who do so after a fight with a significant other.

Hmm… 19+14+12=45. SWMBO goes out shoe shopping about every other weekend. The results hold in this household.

Update: Yes, that is fromĀ The Instapundit. But I don’t think SWMBO reads The Instapundit. She does stop by here occasionally.
