So, I’m working on figuring out why I spend so much on clothing (about 5% of my annual spending)* and I would love to know what you spend on clothing. There’s not a lot of information out there about what’s “normal”.
I’d love to know what you spend on your wardrobe if you have the numbers. Maybe also what you do (if you think that’s a factor?) Or if you have special clothing for hobbies (dance costumes, gis for martial arts, welding aprons, etc)?
So, I spent $1,104 on clothing/costumes last year, 60% of which can be attributed to one made-in-US-custom-tailored-hot-pink-suit. The year before that I spent $1,400. The year before that I spent $0. I work in media and also buy a lot of workout clothing.
*I suspect it’s largely because I like clothing, am on camera/stage a lot, and I usually buy one pricey “investment” piece a year.
