Could shopping sprees actually be a byproduct of a woman's menstrual cycle? British psychology researchers studied the spending habits of more than 400 women between the ages of 18 and 50. They found, the later their test subjects were in their menstrual cycle, the more likely they were to have overspent while shopping.

Scientists at Britain's Hertfordshire University also found the same women whose spending increased reported higher instances of buyer's remorse as well.
