Like, Duh! Teenage Girls Determine What Families Spend Their Money On

How do you feel about a Bieleber being in charge of all of your hard-earned cash? Well, if she has taste like Tavi, then maybe these new findings from the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics are a good thing. Turns out teenage girls are the ones determining what the family loosens its purse strings for, and have a big say in dictating all purchases, from food to fashion. Fortunately, the stats found teenage boys exert no influence whatsoever (we suppose zit cream and lad mags don’t have universal appeal), and older children who still live at home also have less of a say. So, milk your teenage years while you can, girlies, but make sure to move out before you’re 21. (Daily Mail UK)
