It's a cliche that women love to shop, but a new poll seems to confirm the stereotype.

The average woman makes 301 shopping trips each year, spending 8.5 years of her life, er, buying stuff, according to OnePoll.com.

This breaks down into about 400 hours a year -- or 3,148 days in a lifetime, Yahoo! Shine reports.

Gals are most likely to spend their time buying clothes, followed by food, shoes, gifts, books, toiletries and accessories.

But before you start thinking of the ladies in your life as materialistic fashion victims with too much time on their hands, keep in mind that women aren't always shopping for themselves.

''Many men seem to think women only shop when they are buying clothes for themselves," said a spokesman for OnePoll. ''But they quite often shop for the entire family and that can be incredibly hard work.''

You got that right!

    I hate shopping, unless its something I have been wanting for a while and I finally get the money and the time to enjoy the shopping I've been waiting for. This only happens once or twice a year, when I am getting new clothes, or maybe some new electronics. But I do enjoy shopping online for books, does that count?

    Shopping?? Other than groceries (which we try to buy a 2 week supply each time) I do not shop. Do I wish to shop? Yes! I am in terrible need of some new clothes. Last clothing item I bought myself....I bought 7 months ago. It was one blouse on sale for $18.00, did I feel guilty for spending money on me? Yes. My kids are growing like weeds and need new clothes every 1-2 months :)

    Once a week; that's usually when I start running out of stuff. I do try to keep two weeks worth of necessities around in the winter, since heavy, heavy snows can happen where I live.

    I am a man, I shop for myself, I go at least twice a week to the supermarket to buy food and beverages, and frequent the bookstore at least twice a month. This in addition to buying electronic gadgets, music CD's, and clothes, every now and then (3-4 times a year).

    Ohhh pleeease men shop too! I see them at every store I go to, except one perfume store I go to, I rarely to never see men there, but everywhere else i sure see them. And they don't look like they are hating being there. And I have had, in my past, men offer to go shopping with me, and no not for me to buy them stuff, sorry would never happen!!

    One time I was at this clothing store called Mandees, so I saw this big, tough burly looking guy hanging out by the dressing room, I heard his wife or g/f talking to him while she was trying stuff on. But I saw he was holding her purse, a rather delicate, little purse and haha he was a non delicate looking guy, so he saw me look at the purse, then look at his face and look back at the purse.. so in a high pitched voice, he held the purse up higher and said, "Does this go with my outfit?" Haha I laughed so hard, he laughed and his g/f laughed. I don't know if she knew what he had done, but that was great! I will never forget that guy!! And I see quite a few guys shopping with their g/f's or wives and they don't look annoyed at all, who knows maybe the g/f or wife gets uhh super excited shopping and these guys know it so hehe they know once they get home they will get their thrills on, so they are more than willing to go shopping with th...

    But please men shop at the sporting goods and electronic stores and at Home Depot a lot!!! The testosterone in those places is so thick I come out feeling like downing a few brewskis and lighting my poots on fire! Only kidding! But there are a lot of men in those kinds of stores, hmm bookstores too,

    I would rather say SHOPPING about once a month or less, but I'm at the mall more often. Next semester I'll be at the mall every single day, since my bus will leave from there.

    i dont do my own grocery shopping yet (thank the Lord)
    but the only time i get to go shopping is when my aunt takes me on one big shopping trip 3 times a year, and we spend around $250 each time.
    i dont like shopping, i only go when the seasons change and i need a warmer/cooler wardrobe

    It used to be the opposite, but then it gets to be expensive. And having to watch every penny you spend these days, I simply work harder to keep my clothes looking nice. I can't afford to blow a whole paycheck on clothes by paying back the credit card bill plus interest.

    rarely.

    though that could be due to the whole living with parents and no job thing...
    but even still. shopping holds no appeal to me unless it's music.

    I don't have a lot of freezer or kitchen cabinet space, so I don't stock up on groceries. This necessitates my grocery shopping 2 to 3 times each week.

    Where is the none of the above. Your choices were stupid if you don't shop once a week. I probably shop once a year for clothes...if that. I have enough beautiful clothes to last me a life time.

    I barely go grocery shopping. We bulk buy as neither one of us likes to shop and that may only be once a month or sometimes more with needing diapers for the new puppies.

    I was burned out on shopping over 24 years ago when my house burned and I had to replace everything within a year.

    nyeh, not every week, but: let's see, and it's a little different each month. I often go once or twice around the 5th of each month, then, after the 10th or so, the next time I go, I wait 3 or more days until the next round; then I may go for my mom and dad the next 2 rounds as they give me money, and for over 1 week, I don't go at all, so: not much. I buy less than $50 worth each time normally. Usually not even $45. So, I don't eat a lot.

    Oh yea. We're talking any kind of shopping. I wouldn't know for the rest anyway, as I don't live in a dorm or independant living, nor have a car of my own, and in the Winter it gets cold where I live.
