Bought my clothes before I went to uni. And that wasn't a huge amount; I just wore what I had from school. Is there a need to get kitted out for university? Seems kind of pointless to me when you have perfectly good clothes in your wardrobe...

I have far too many clothes. I didn't need to do my laundry til the 8th week as I didn't run out of clothes til then. So I'm gonna try not to buy any clothes, shoes or bags this term, but it probably won't work.

I don't buy clothes while I'm still at home and working, so I sure as hell won't be doing so while at uni. I doubt I'll ever be in any situations where I'll need to look smart or clean. All I'll need to buy is a needle and some cotton to stitch what I have back together.

I spent about £100 on new clothes during my first semester at uni - and it was solely because I was a bit shell-shocked at the difference in temperature in London in October compared to Glasgow - everything I had with me was either too warm or cold. So I went to the student lock-in in Topshop on Oxford Street and used my 20% discount as best I could.

Since then, I've not really had time to do some shopping for myself - the precious shopping time I have had has been used on buying Christmas presents for other people.

I was generally quite thrifty during my first term at uni, or so I thought. Was doing my spreadsheets the other day though and I've spent over £300 on clothes in 2 months. I don't appear to have bought much either so I'm telling myself it's a good investment in winter clothing and thinking nothing more of it. I don't understand how I possibly spent that though since the shops in Oxford are so crap compared to Glasgow.
