78% of Americans admit to regularly leaving the grocery store with more than 50$ worth of unintended purchases

The same percent have experienced "cart envy" and left a checkout line in search of items they saw in others' shopping carts.

In addition, about two-thirds admitted they sometimes spend more than $50 on unintended purchases.
