I do love a list.

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Frugal February has got me a wonderin'... just how much do I spend a year on Clothes, shoes and accessories? £300, £500, £1,000, more? I Googled it but the results varied between £250 to over £1,000.

In January alone I purchased four jumpers, a cardigan, a dress, a shirt, a pair of ballet pumps, a pair of gloves, two bags and a scarf. This seems a lot when written down, I haven't ever kept a tally but I think I should.

I'll be adding a page so that I can keep track over the course of 2012 (I'll be keeping the total spent to myself until the end of the year). Will this figure scare me? I fully expect that it will.

How much do you think you spend on clothes each month? Do you have a budget or no clue at all?

I'm intrigued to know.

  1. I don't currently have a budget or keep track of what I buy, but I really should. I spend far too much on clothes that I hardly ever wear. It's sometimes as if the shopping/buying is an end in itself.

    I'm sure if I found out how much I spend my eyes would pop xx

    1. Fingers crossed that my eyes stay intact when I see the final figure!

  2. Oh gosh, I don't even want to know! I don't ted to shop every month, but every two or three months I tend to go a little over the top! I think it's a great idea to keep track though, good luck with the project!

    1. That's how it goes for me, I think I stop for a while due to shopping guilt hehe.

  3. I should do! I feel sick when I think how much money I have waste on clothes in the past 2 years! It's a lot!

  4. I actually did a post about this back in January and I have yet to calculate how much I spend per month. I'm guessing that it's somewhere between the $100-$150 range. Is that bad?

    1. I think I'm going to come somewhere near that, so I'll have to say that's not bad at all! I seem to be doing a lot of shopping this month though, undoing all the good I did in Frugal February!
