    I don't keep count of the things I buy but I've bought 10-12 things online these 2 years and have also gone out shopping so maybe about £1000 a year?? roughly that. But since I'm going uni in Sep I think I will spend more these few months.

    Usually less, but since I've entered my David & Goliath phase (and yes, I'm a bloke, but I love them and their funny designs so much), I've been buying more clothes than I usually do, if ever. I'd usually wait for America, but since I'm now at uni, I have to rely on the internet for good deals for anything else like Levi's for instance.

    I don't shop very often, probably about once or twice every few months. But when I do, I stock up, so I'll buy a whole bunch all at once. This week I've spent about a grand but I won't buy anything else for at least 2 or 3 months. Won't spend more than 2-3 grand per year on clothes.

    I spend the vast majority of my wages on clothes, but once I'm living away from home, that will most definitely stop as I'll be paying rent/bills etc.

    I don't understand how so many people can afford UGG boots. £165 a pair! Do they even last?
    Er yes they last...

    As for how much I spend it varies from 2,500€ to 3,000€ seriously it is easy to blow that kind of money on clothes through the year

    Hi there,

    I was just wondering how much everyone spent per year on clothes?

    It seems to vary hugely at university.

    A winter coat always seems to be so expensive and so are a comfy pair of boots.

    I don't understand how so many people can afford UGG boots. £165 a pair! Do they even last?

    Thanks.

    Mostly around £150 a year,..i dont know why but im at that age where i go a bit mad when it comes to shopping,

    I'm only at 6th form, but that involves no uniform.

    Over a year i probably get a total of about £75 in vouchers for clothes shops and spend all of that and probably another £25 or so. (if a special event such as a wedding is happening my dad'll buy the dress but I have to wear as much as possible of stuff i already have)

    This includes shoes btw.

    How are you lot spending £100 a month?

    Hmm not sure. Maybe around £30 a year. Usually goes towards replacement socks, and maybe the odd pair of jeans or a jumper. I don't really buy clothes often. It's not like I'm still growing.
    This.

    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).
    £70 for two t-shirts!!!!!!! and £43 for something from a charity shop ?!?!??!

    I've spent £0 since September on clothes. I don't really need new clothes, and I only really buy a few bits every year over the summer. >_>

    The T-shirts in question were limited edition designer t-shirts (and I hardly ever buy t-shirts anyway) and the boots from the charity shop were a) in excellent condition and b) a designer brand that would have cost upwards of £400 new.

    No offense, but I wouldn't expect someone still at 6th form who only spends about £100 a year on clothes and shoes to understand :curious:

    Oh I do have a job :fyi:

    I spend about £100 or so in the sales mainly. I normally buy loads in the summer though when I'm working to see me through the year while I'm at uni
