Does Hearing Christmas Music Make Us Spend More?

Chances are, if you've strolled through Broadway Square Mall lately, you've heard Christmas music piping through the speakers as you shop.

Maybe you've thought nothing of it. Tis the season after all, and we expect to hear the Christmas music in our favorite stores. In fact, not hearing it would be an odd thing.

Some say hearing the Christmas songs can make us spend more money in that store. No way! But when we add up our receipts from the shopping season and realize how much we've spent, it would be kinda nice to blame our lack of control on something.

Self-Gifting Is Big This Year

While you're out doing the holiday shopping and buying gifts for everyone else, are you tempted to splurge on something for yourself?

This idea of self-gifting was actually part of the sermon I heard at church yesterday, so I did a little more investigating and dug up some interesting facts.

My pastor said we'll spend on average, $75 on a gift for a close friend, $23 on an acquaintance, and $123 on a gift for ourselves. Tis the giving season! To ourselves apparently. A national newspaper says the self-spending total will be even higher - close to $200 per person.

Your Packages Are On the Way…Cyber Monday Sales Were HUGE

The Research firm ComScore says sales this past Monday were around $1.46 BILLION. That's up 17 percent from the $1.25 billion total of 2011. We spent dollars like crazy online Monday. Don't you wonder how much of that was done at work? We didn't get much done at work that day. We were too busy shopping.

The UPS guy has been to my house two days in a row with deliveries. Does anyone else have a little cyber guilt for all of the separate online orders? I feel bad the the UPS guy has to make separate trips for little packages here and there. I wonder if he sees my address and gets mad. Not again! Oh UPS man, there will be more where that came from. We may start setting out cookies and milk for you, Fed Ex, and the Post Office. We'll be seeing a lot of you over the next three weeks.
