It is Best to Shop Alone: Study

Shopping with female friends can dent your bank balance and it is best to shop alone, indicates new research.

Experts have found that 62 percent of women who go for shopping with a female friend will spend more money than those who venture to the high street on their own, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

In fact, girls tend to spend 37.25 pounds more each time they go out with their friends than when they are unaccompanied.

A spokeswoman for Liverpool ONE, which commissioned the study of 2,000 women, said: "Shopping with friends, while sometimes a more costly experience, can often be far more enjoyable than going to the high street alone."

"When shopping alone, it is easy to decide not to bother buying anything if you're not sure whether outfits are complementary, and if your guilty conscience wins."

"Girly shopping trips aren't just about the purchases either, they often include lunch, coffee, catching up on the gossip - they're a fun day out, and worth a little extra cash," she added.
