Nearly half of Americans do holiday shopping while sitting on the toilet

Holiday shopping can be all-consuming, so it’s no wonder people find time whenever they can. Apparently, that means even in the bathroom stall. 

Forty-six percent of Americans revealed they shop while they’re sitting on the toilet, according to a new PayPal Money Habits study.

Weirdly, it's becoming more common. Shopping in the bathroom saw a boost of 24 percent over the year 2016.

But don’t go blaming millennials just yet. This is most common in Gen Z-ers, according to a MasterCard poll.

So where else are people buying holiday gifts for their loved ones? Buying in bed is a popular choice.

Money-ish reports more than 4 in 10 people plan to get some holiday shopping done at work, while more than a third will be buying online and IRL at the same time.
