How much clothes do you own... and actually fit in. lol.

I am getting frustrated because I all I have is 2 pair of jeans, 3 -4 shirts for summer and 2-3 shirts for winter. 2 worn out house dresses and 3 set of scrubs for work. That is literally all I have. Is that pretty normal or am I justified in sucking it up and buying myself some new clothes? I hate spending money on me!!

  • Throw in a couple pairs of dress pants and a couple of skirts, along with 3 jackets ... and that's about what I have too. Sounds pretty normal to me!

  • PURPULbutterfly>>>>it's not that easy ofr some people...some people would rather think about their family instead and then again some people don't have the money to go put and just "BLOW" money like that and some just think it is just plain useless to have a ton of clothes or other stuff....Frankly I see it as money wasted if you have only the main necessities and it is absolutely pointless....I guess I'm just one of the few that is not materialistic and really knows what matters in life

  • I have so many clothes. It is crazy. The thing is if you don't have enough go to Walmart and purchase a few tees or jeans they are not expensive and they look fine. Target works too. I live by a t.j.maxx so I spend time shopping in there. I really don't need any thing, I just like to get new stuff.

  • I have a lot of clothes, but mostly because I've had most of them for years! I rarely buy anything new, but I take very good care of what I have so that it will last. The last new item I purchased was a shirt on sale for 5 bucks at last year's (2009) end of season sidewalk sales.
