A new study finds you’ll spend an average of $143,280 in your lifetime to treat yourself. Seem like too much? Maybe. Maybe not. Here’s the breakdown. We spend an average of $199 every month on things that aren’t essential AT ALL in our lives, but we really, really want them! Anything from a candy bar or soda in the grocery store check out line to a new iPhone , a trip or concert tickets.  

The study also found women are three times more likely than men to spend money on massages and spa treatments, whereas men are more likely to spend money on cars and new technology. Sounds about right!
