Women make the decisions

Women make over 80% of the buying decisions in U.S. households today. They've become nearly every family's chief purchasing officer.

It's no longer just the men who decide whether the house needs a plasma TV, more shelves, a new bath, or even a remodeled kitchen. Women are buying a majority of all consumer-electronics and home-improvement goods today, besides the weekly groceries.
