Honestly it is no joke, I wouldn’t mess with you on the subject of wardrobes.
I read an article the other day and someone said ‘why isn’t anyone talking about how many outfits we already have in our wardrobes?’
I literally sat in my seat with my hand in the air, like an eager school child saying,
‘I do Sir!!’
‘I do, I do!’
I have long talked about the Wardrobe Love, I have written several blogs already about my relationship with my wardrobe, one in particular called ‘Conversations with my Wardrobe’ and how over the years it has become a very dear and close friend.
I would like to point out we do have our fall outs still though, most recently it was a disagreement on whether I should wear jeans during my work week.
My wardrobe reminded me of my rule of limiting jeans to weekend ‘mum time’ and I admitted defeat and wore the wide legged trousers on instead.
I wouldn’t say this to it’s face but I did feel pretty good in that outfit!
Anyways…back to the point in question.
Do I really spend £1000 a year on clothes?
According to a survey undertaken by WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) in October 2022, The average UK adult spends an estimated £76.53 per month on clothes.
Multiply that by 12 months and suddenly we are knocking on the door of that 4 figure mark.
Your shopping pattern maybe different and monthly may not be your vibe, however if you sat and added up how much you spend on new clothes over the year it may surpass that amount.
That is a hell of a lot of money to be hanging up in your wardrobe with most of it hardly worn. Especially when you think that also according to the study a quarter of those clothes haven’t been worn in a year.
Think of how many outfits could be hanging up in front of you everyday and you just don’t wear them?!
It is so easily done though, wearing what you are comfortable in, not stepping out of your comfort zone.
It is one of the reasons why I am so passionate about helping people discover the potential in their wardrobes.
I have been there with the only wearing comfortable body covering clothes whilst being in a self loathing hole, lived it many times over and got several T-shirts too.
But now I am in the position where I have a full wardrobe that I wear a majority of and have only spent about £100 on a few new pieces, some of which were preloved too.
I know what I need, want and how to get the most out of my wardrobe and this is something you can have as well I promise.
