How often do you shop for clothes?

I rarely shop for clothes. My clothes count years before I discard them. You wouldn't believe me if I tell you that I have clothes that are more than ten years old. That is because I seldom wear them. I'd rather buy other things than clothes. I am content with jeans and shirts that is why I seldom go shopping for clothes.

Well,I also have many clothes which I keep for more than ten years because I rarely wear them. But I still like to shop for clothes but not always. I will buy them if I feel like buying and I really love the design and of course looking for the latest one.

Shop for new clothes has never been easy for me, I really wait until my oldclothes wear out completely. I do take time to go clothing and this has some effect on my clothes, they wear out easily and keep on replacing them after that which can even take years. I just get tired to do clothes shopping and still don't know the reason why I always get reluctant to buy new clothes. I will try to do impulse buying, this probably will help me with new clothes

I do not buy clothes very often,because I have several pairs of blue jeans that I can wear,and I have several t-shirts which I am very content with,and the only time I really buy clothes is if I out grow my clothes,if I lose weight and can not fit into them,or if they get holes in them,which does not happen very often which is something I am thankful for,and I think there are more important things to worry about than clothes.

I rarely shop for clothes much preferring my comfortable older clothes.I have been tempted to bid for certain items of clothing on Ebay,but have learnt to curb myself,the last purchase was a green velvet cocktail dress which I thought may come in handy at some point,but when the item arrived the outfit was far too small,hence I resold it on the auction site,I was fortunate and covered the amount that I had spent out on the purchase.Charity stores tend to be a safe place to buy clothing,they have changing rooms ,but if you have no time to try anything on ,if you keep the till receipt they will give you a complete refund,a good policy.

I also rarely buy clothes and try to make the ones i have last as long as possible, but i am rough on my clothing so at least every six months i am having to buy a new pair of jeans because i have worn holes in the old ones. My shirts tend to last longer.

When I'm in the mood, I buy at least a piece of clothing weekly for a month. The next months, I don't buy anymore. Then after like five months, I go shopping again for weekly for a month. So there. There's a pretty big gap XD

hello masmasika, I don't shop for clothes that often since I don't have so much money to buy everything I want. So its very rare for me to go shopping. And I took care of my clothes properly so it would last long and I don't need to buy often.Just like you I'm also contented with my old jeans and blouse.

Lol, I have clothes that are older than that. I rarely get new clothes for myself but I do shop for clothes almost everytime I go to the store... for my kids. I always check what's on sale, they are growing so fast. For myself and my husband it's really rare, maybe once or twice a year to replace what's worn out.
