How often do you buy clothes for yourself?

I keep seeing back to school ads all over the site. Made me wonder how often moms actually shop for themselves for clothes.


I usually look while we're out but only occasionally pick up something new. This weekend I got a couple new things from Old Navy for myself but only because I had a gift card to use.

You sound like me. I shop for myself once or twice a year, maybe, and that is ususlly because of a giftcard. I have a couple of jobs, otherwise, I probably wouldn't even buy that much. Also, when I can't find anything I like, I use my giftcard on clothes for my son! :-)

I haven't bought myself clothes since right after Aiden was born. Since then though my MIL gave me two outfits for Christmas and hubby bought me a shirt for mothers day. I bought myself socks a couple of months ago LOL.

Well, other than my two pregnancies, I haven't changed size in years, whereas my kids can literally go to bed in pajamas that fit and wake up with floodpants and a belly shirt.

No where near as much as I do for my kids.

Hardly ever.  The last thing I bought for myself was when I had my dd and needed a nursing bra (which is probably the most wonderful clothing item I've ever bought).  I really want to get some new shirts but don't have the money right now.

Not often. I am trying to lose weight and after a little more down I will buy some.
