While the U.S. started to roll out stimulus payments to its citizens this week in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, some appear to be splurging on items that can’t really be considered necessities. As the New York Post reports, while the money provides much-needed relief for many people in the countries, some Americans were opting for more frivolous purchases. For example, Destiny Zamora from San Antonio, Texas, reportedly bought an inflatable dinosaur costume for US$35 plus tax. According to the receipt, the outfit is appropriate for Halloween, parties and cosplay.
