When Is It Used?

The most commonly used examples of employing ‘Girl Math’ on social media

Well, it is not every day that you get to splurge on your impulse needs. Want to buy a ridiculously expensive wallet or eat that mouth-watering cheesecake on a gym day? You can do it all if it makes your life even sliver happier, all thanks to the holy principles of ‘Girl Math’.

How Do You Use It?

The simplest explanation of the trend is using your delusional tendencies to believe that you are saving money even when you are not. If a purchase is worth the dough, then the bucks spent on it are never a waste or extravagant expense; rather, they are justified. 

Although most explanations tie Girl Math to financial expenditure, the trend is much more than that. The women weighing in on this trend on social media emphasise that ‘Girl Math’ is all-encompassing of intuitive decisions women take to make their lives easier.

The best way to use the trend’s know-how is to simply subtract and add time, effort, or money spent in comparison to the satisfaction and joy received. One Twitter user explains it as “You broke a sweat today, so you can technically afford an extra 400 calories today.” For others, ‘Girl Math’ is much more complex. Here’s a look at how some women use ‘Girl Math’.
