If life were perfect and there weren't things like bills or dental care, you'd use all of your money to treat yourself. But as it stands now, we're still carving out a decent amount of cash for that very important purpose.

According to a new study, you'll spend an average of $143,280 in your lifetime to treat yo' self.

We spend an average of $199 every month on things that aren't essential at all in our lives, but that we really want. That can mean anything from a candy bar or a new iPhone to concert tickets or a trip. That adds up to $2,388 per year and over approximately 60 years of adult life, it comes out to $143,280.

The study also found that women are three times more likely than men to spend money on massages and spa treatments and men are more likely to spend money on cars and new technology.
