    Generally Daddy only lets me spend £5000 a year, I have to beg to get more, how harsh is that, OMG!!!:eek:








    ...I spent a few £hundred on clothes last year and thought that was a massive outlay ffs, with most of that being on a good pair of boots and a coat which will last me years...

    Why the hell are you on a student forum at 30 years old? :lolwut:


    Anyway, so far this year I've spent about £20 on clothes - a new shirt and new swimming trunks. It varies, but I'd say no more than £100 a year.
    I wasn't aware there was an age limit. Also I didn't finish University until I was 29.

    lol....


    wat


    How can you afford that?! Are you in IB?
    Sorry was meant to say £50-60 a month.

    The suits will last me pretty much a lifetime and they're really nice too.

    Other than the occasional band t-shirt, very little. Sometimes my mum loses it and insists on buying me a new jumper or new socks

    Probably quite a lot when I think about it... at least £500? Although I am a massive ebayer So I feel less bad buying new clothes when I know I'm making a bit of money getting rid of the old

    I actually dread to think. I'm one of those who buys in small amounts but regularly. Probably averaging about £30 a week, not including anything pageant related like eveningwear, good quality swimwear or specialist stuff.

    spent per year....while at uni? hmm.

    during my 3 years as undergrad, and this 6 months so far as a postgraduate student, maybe about 700£ just on underwear and socks.

    other than this.....i still have pretty much all other clothings from when i was 18.... i am not big clothes or self-beautifying shopper atall! :|

    This is obviously going to turn into a competition about who on TSR is the richest kid and can spend the most money on clothes.

    I can't remember the last time I personally bought clothes, because every time I visit my older siblings in America (or vice versa) I get a ton of clothes/trainers as presents. So many clothes I don't even wear are in the wardrobes.

    Hmmm, probably between £500-£800?? Well, I hope it's not more than that. As long as it doesn't include handbags, which would push the amount up A LOT. :eek:

    About £100-150 from shops per year. I get a lot of stuff from car boot sales, normally look out for clothes with tags on and run it through the wash when I get home and it's perfect. I've walked away with a whole new outfit for less than £2 before.

    Blimey I'm not sure. This is what I've bought since December (off the top of my head):

    £120 leather jacket (sale) *
    £25 bag (sale) *
    £70 scarf (sale) *
    £32 Nikes (sale)
    £60 denim jacket (sale)
    £40 cropped trench (discount sale website) *
    £70 for 2 t shirts
    £25 belt (sale) *
    £20 trainers (sale)
    £43 leather boots (charity shop) *

    £505 total. *stuff bought in December.

    Generally speaking I do a lot of shopping in/around the Summer and Christmas sales, but I do buy at other times. I'm also getting good at gauging when items will be priced down, so if I think they will be I tend to hold off on buying them (the Nikes I bought for £32 were originally £85 and I had had my eye on them for months).

    I guess I probably spend on average between £1000 and £2000 a year maybe? Depends on the year tbh, year before last there was hardly anything I liked IIRC.

    Depends on what I buy, can go months without buying anything at all, then have a big splurge. I have probably spent around £600 so far this year on clothes not exactly sure though.
