57% of Americans want to hang out with their friends at least once a month. And while 69% say they’ve mastered the art of hosting parties, it seems some need some help.

In fact, the poll of 2,000 Americans that was sponsored by Chinet reveals that 3 in 10 admit they’ve forgotten to buy food for their get-togethers.

Other last-minute oopsies include forgetting to buy disposable plates and cups — but bear in mind the source of the survey is a company that sells both.

The survey also revealed people anticipate spending an average of $152 on each gathering, but that usually goes out the window with last-minute grabs of soda and ice.

However, it’s worth it, respondents say: 74% of those polled consider getting together with friends as good for their health as a therapy session.
