When it comes to holiday shopping, woman say they take charge

When it comes to household spending and holiday shopping, women make most of the decisions.

That’s according to a new poll by CreditCards.com.

But men see it very differently. The survey found men believe they share those decisions equally with a woman in their household.

Regarding holiday shopping, far more men (41 percent) than women (25 percent) said it was shared.

The CreditCards.com poll also found:

  • 73 percent of women say a female does most of their household’s shopping for clothes and shoes; just 23 percent of men agree.
  • 70 percent of women say a female does most of their household’s grocery shopping; only 31 percent of men agree.
  • 46 percent of women say a female is primarily responsible for buying movie, concert or sports tickets in their household; a mere 7 percent of men agree.
  • 44 percent of women say a female is primarily responsible for deciding where to go out to eat; just 9 percent of men agree.
  • 43 percent of women say a female is primarily responsible for their household’s big-ticket electronics/appliances purchases; just 8 percent of men agree.
  • 41 percent of women say a female is primarily responsible for planning travel and vacations; just 12 percent of men agree.
