Drunk Americans Spend Nearly $40B a Year

It should come as no surprise to learn people often do irrational things when they're drunk. Right?

A study released Wednesday reveals Americans spent nearly $40 billion while drunk shopping in 2018. Of that figure, 52 percent was spend on food; 43.22 percent was spent on shoes and clothing; and 43.22 percent was spent on cigarettes. Other items people bought while under the influence include cars, vacations and even a peacock.

The data, released by Finder.com and Pureprofile, was gleaned from a survey of 2,100 adults.
