    How much do you spend or budget for clothes e.g each month (including shoes!)? Does this differ throughout the year, for example do you treat yourself to something extra around your birthday or Christmas?

    I used to spend more on clothes, probably £40 ish a month, but I've found I have most of the clothes I want now so tend to just buy things now and then, so probably averages at about £20 now

    I tend to spend a lot on relatively few items which I then make work very hard for their keep. I supplement this core every year with a few extra items, but the core wardrobe is good enough quality to last a good few years before it needs replacing.

    It tends to be high quality classic items that do not go out of fashion easily but are also more expensive because they last a lot longer.

    These are supplemented with items for casual wear like t-shirts, polo shirts, shorts etc. which can be thrown out after one or two seasons.

    I try not to spend much, but as weather changes and my general situation changes, I find I need to buy more to keep up with it all. I try not to spend more than £40, and will go often without spending anything. This month I've probably spent about £30, but £15 was from an Amazon voucher I had otherwise I wouldn't have bought what I did :laugh:

    it depends on what I need but an average month I'd say must be £250-300 but when I go overboard can jump to say £2,000-3,000 in a month (my worst was when I had 6 suits and a tuxedo in a day it was a £3,500 purchase but well worth it)

    I don't budget for anything. I just spend money when I need to.

    I hate shopping so only go when I need stuff. I probably shop for clothes 3 times a year and spend about £200. So I probably spend 600 a year.
