Not a massive amount but what p*sses me off is that DH & I went into a shop to but T-shirts. His was about £4 cheaper than mine, despite mine obviously having less material. Same shop too. No design or pattern on either.. The difference? His was navy blue and mine was pastel blue.
Women can't help spending more on their clothes cos the shops charge us more
me £30 per month, some times i dont bother and spend £0
DS aprox £10 per month.
Its not some thing im interested in particularly.
I loath clothes shopping and REFUSE point blank to pay high prices of mail order etc.
Tend to go to Next or George or Tesco but always always buy in sales, put away for next year etc.
Too much recently!!!
I have been a bit stressed out recently & that always makes me spend money to make myself feel better!
Also, there are sales everywhere ATM!
I keep buying things on the FCUK website, as they have a 75% off sale!
I love the stuff from there, but it is FAR too expensive when full price!
spykid - i'm sure there wasn't! its just too tempting
i just have to say i hate it when i'm holding out for stuff in the sales and the shop holds the items i want back for another couple of weeks, i'm sure its because they know i'll buy something else anyway!!
I have spent a total of about £40 on maternity clothes this year (mostly ebay/mumsnet) - other than that, zilch.
I would love love love to update my (post preggers) wardrobe after the baby is born, as most of it is at least 5 years old and some 10 years old - but I doubt I will have the money so will have to stick to the same old things for another year!
I spend hardly anything, maybe £20 in Tescos or Asda now and again. I did spend £20 on t-shirts this year when I suddenly realised that the only ones I had were 5 years old and had been worn and washed through 2 pregnancies. And looked it.
Occasionally get stuff from charity shops or the last few days of the Monsoon sale when the clothes are actually cheaper than the supermarkets.
Having said that, I did buy a top in the Boden sale last summer, then promptly tumble dried it so it shrunk, so it's probably a good thing that I don't spend much.
i try not to ocunt.....until it hurts where it matters.....in the overdraft
however, I wait for the sales with almost everything, and I've just bought a diesel denim jacket for £10 for my dp off ebay..........+ loads of stuff for ds in the sales, often stuff for next year though
I am terrible for spending money on cllothes. We go to the States every two years and i always save around £2000 just to spend on clothes, shoes, bags etc. I don't often buy stuff here and do stress that I save this money before I go and if I don't have it I don't spend it. I never put clothes on a credit card.
I never go shopping - too much hassle with 2 dds! But I'm obviously a devoted Next catalogue shopper because I've been given a VIP slot for theie sales and get to shop for an hour on Thursday before everyone else gets a chance!! Great but I dread to think how much I must have spent for such a perk - never happened before! But have doubled my hours at work since last Sept so have been 'treating' myself more often!!
