The average person would be happy if they could get away with only spending $400 on the holidays this year.  But, it might tick higher than that because more than half of us feel pressure to OVERSPEND.

56% of people in a new poll said they felt the need to overspend on stuff last year.  Can you guess what the top thing we splurge on is?  

Here are the top five:

1.  Gifts.  66% of people who felt pressure to overspend said presents were a culprit.

2.  Food and drinks, 29%.

3.  Travel, 18%.  Like if you feel pressured to fly home for the holidays.

4.  New clothes and outfits, 16%.  For things like work parties and New Year's.

5.  Decorations, 14%.

Just over a third of people in the poll said their perfect holiday experience would include spending it at home with ONLY their immediate family.

And here's some early holiday hum buggery26% of people said that having ZERO plans and obligations would be ideal.
