I often buy new clothes in one whole shot. I drive to different stores and get a bunch of things. Ill buy some shirts and pants. Sometimes though, Ill just go to one store and buy something if I only have a little bit of money and just need one thing. Have a nice day!!!

Maybe like one item every month or two..not much unless I need something in particular. For example, I'd only buy another pair of jeans if I didn't have enough that fit me for every day of the week. Some people are shop-a-holics and CONSTANTLY-not only once in a while- buy expensive clothes even if they already have enough.. I guess I don't buy much because I usually have to pay for most of it myself! Now if it was someone else's money$$..... XD

hi ,Swadey,I do not chase fashion,I just need a few pieces of clothes is enough for me.I usually put the money used to buy stocks.I think that buy a lot of clothes is a waste of money,unless you are very rich.because these clothes will be cutdated soon.

i pretty much only buy clothes at thrift stores these days due to job loss and lack of money. i did get some birthday money so i will use it to buy some new shirts for work though.

Not very often. I have two kids, they get the new stuff 1st. Money is tight. So I only get new things if they are absolutely necessary. I do go to the second hand store sometimes. That is new for me.

just sometimes , i will buy it only if necessary,we should not waste money too much on clothes , just use the existing clothing. However unless if there is ceremony or celebration that only happen once a year & you need to celebrate that day... e.g , festival , & etc..

I tend to always buy new clothes, everytime a new fashion comes around or a new store emails me their sales for the week I seem to find a few minutes in my day to slip into the mall and pick up something I'll probably one wear once or twice. It's my downfall, with shoes too. I probably own 60 pairs of heels, at least 20 of them are the very-similar small black pumps, all with a varying heel shape or size. Same for clothes. I always like to buy new jeans and after a while I realize that I have 25 pairs of exactly the same fade. I probably wouldn't be working 3 jobs if I didn't have this problem :) But hey, at least I can say it's "work-related" to dress nicely for one of my jobs.

For me I like to browse about every other week for things and I only buy something for myself if I absolutely need it or if its really on clearance. And the thing with clearance shopping is a ton of people tend to buy things on clearance they might not actually love but are getting it due to the price. For me I don't even look at prices until I decide I absolutely love the piece of clothing and then if the price is right I'll buy it. Also I tend to buy a ton while I'm home from school because I can get my 30% at the place I work during breaks even though I might not be working at that moment and thats always great.

I tend to only buy clothes as we need them.I used to always get clothes and shoes even if we did not need them as they were always in a sale in at least one shop and i used to buy them for the sake of it and they never got worn.So now i tend to save my money rather than get the things i do not need or that i will never use.

Only if I have money. I am actually used to my aunts buying me new clothes. Spending my own money in buying new clothes is a bit new to me.

I rarely buy new clothes, may be once or twice in a year. This is because I don't find the need of having so many clothes & wasting money because I can spend more on entertainment. I usually shop during sales period & buy clothes enough to provide me for a year. Happy Lotting

I do not buy new clothes very often. I hate buying new clothes. I usually wear my clothes until I realize that it's getting to the point that I either buy new clothes or walk around naked some day. With that being said, I normally buy a few new things here and there. I hate going out and buying a bunch of new things all at once because I think I end up buying things that I at some point will think is stupid and will refuse to wear them. I think I make more impulse purchases just to get done with the shopping trip. Whenever I start to notice I'm getting low on one thing or another I tell myself that on Saturday or whatever I'm going to make a shopping trip and I am going to buy a few new items.
