You’ve done it.
You’ve gotten home after a few Savignon Blancs with the gals and bought an Oroton bag on ebay, haven’t you?
You’ve stalked a pair of shoes online, not purchasing, just looking, until they STALKED you back on every fricking website ad until you relented.
You possibly know the ASOS courier on a first-name basis and they possibly have your address saved under “favourites”.
There’s no judgement here, angels. Because secret shopping is an art form and something which Australians do a heck of a lot of.
Last year, website finder.com.au revealed that Australians spend 11.3 billion on purchases a YEAR that they don’t tell their partners about.
Listen to Monique Bowley talk about secret shopping on this episode of OutLoud: Post continues.
Here’s the surprising part: even though men spend three times the amount that women do (an average of $4596 a year, and mostly on porn and gambling, what a shock) and women spend a measly $1476 (on clothes and food. The two most important things), us ladyfolk are MORE likely to hide our purchases.
This is something that Mamamia OutLoud host Monique Bowley knows a lot about.
So much so, she’s even developed the definitive guide to sneaky online shopping.
