A new study finds that nearly 90% of both men and women sometimes make impulse purchases.

Nearly a quarter of men said they shelled out more than $100 the last time they made an impulse buy, compared to just 16% of women.

The Invest in You Spending Survey was conducted by CNBC and Acorns in partnership with SurveyMonkey from June 17–20.

There are ways to curb impulse buying, say experts.

1. Keep a spending diary.

2. Institute a waiting period.

3. Beware of retail tricks.

4. Leave your plastic at home.

5. Eliminate the urge online.

6. Budget for it.
