 You’re probably heard of revenge bedtime procrastination by now (i.e staying up late because you don’t get enough leisure time during the day) but did you know that revenge shopping is a thing?

After over a year of cancelled plans and holidays, quarantine and restrictions, (thanks for nothing, COVID) people are shopping to give themselves a boost and make up for lost time. Financial experts are already noticing an upturn in spending, and they predict the curve to keep rising as 2021 continues.
