So, an EG reader recently asked me if I knew how much EG readers spend on clothes on a monthly basis.
I thought that was a good question, so I wanted to open it up to you guys:
How much do you spend for clothing in an average month?
I think it’s interesting because we all have different tastes, preferences, and disposable incomes, and this answer will differ a lot among everyone.
I personally don’t spend that much in an average month. I have a feeling most EG readers don’t either. That’s probably because here at EG, we focus on classic, timeless style, and pieces that last years instead of fleeting fashions that come and go with the seasons. The majority of clothes in my closet were “in style” when I bought them years ago, and they are still relevant today.
If I do make a purchase, it’s usually for the basics, or for a big ticket item like a pair of shoes or a nice coat. The latter doesn’t happen very often, so it would be hard to average that in. At the same time, those purchases are often worth it, considering that they’ll last and I’ll get plenty of use out of them.
So what about you? How much do you spend? Do you like buying stuff that’s more classic and meant to be worn for years, or are you more of a buyer of what’s on-trend this season? Do you buy more stuff per month than the average EG reader?
There’s no right or wrong answer to any of these questions, of course. Just thought it would be cool to start a mini discussion on EG readers’ typical spending habits and amounts.
Let’s hear it below!
