How much do you spend at once on clothes?


So I was recently watching a Youtube video and the vlogger mentioned spending £500 at once on ASOS and 'forgetting' to send some of it back! I know vloggers tend to be able to do this more some than us 'normal' peeps!

It just got me thinking about how much other people spend on a single online clothes order. Personally, i try not to spend over £100 at a time as it feels much to expensive.I always send stuff back if its my own clothes (as I tend to order 2 sizes). But if it's the kids stuff, it tends to fit and I keep it all. I probably make one clothing order a month (some months i order nothing, some months I order tons!) Obviously everybody has different incomes and can afford to spend different amounts but this is whats in my budget. Anybody else care to share?

Just interested to know how other people spend.

For myself I’d probably do a massive shop once in a blue moon but try to limit it to £150. In recent years I would constantly pop into town and buy things all the time but it was costing me a fortune and more often than not I wouldn’t wear it.

The kids tend to have new clothes at the change of season but mainly ds1 as ds2 and 3 get hand me downs. I’d try to base that on what they need rather than a cost. Buying clothes in one of my biggest weaknesses

I usually only buy clothes as & when we need them so my usual spend is around £50, unless I am buying specific things like shoes or coats that bump up the price.

The most I have got in one go was holiday clothes earlier this year. I spent around £600 (that was clothes for all four of us!) I have lost a fair bit of weight since last year so needed a full holiday wardrobe, otherwise I would have spent less.

I try to keep it under £100 (thank god for still having student discount!) for me and I just pick up bits for my DD as and when she needs them.

I find it so hard to find clothes that I like and look nice and me so it’s not very often that I buy for myself, despite needing them desperately bought myself a coat and jacket on Sunday, came to £103 and I feel super guilty about it, lol!

For me, very very little!
If there is a bargain sale i might get a top for a fiver every few months.
My mum buys me a few tops for my bday and xmas and i make sure to ask someone to get me jeans or money towards jeans. The only exception is a wedding about once a year.

Kids i buy as and when needed so normally get a few bits each child every sainsburys sale. I try and buy clothes that go with lots of things so leggings that could go with multiple tops etc. my youngest gets hand me downs from 2 friends i know so i buy her a few nice bits once every 6-8 weeks.
Moneywise id say £35-40 every 6 weeks. I also will sometimes have to buy trainers (every 6 months) or wellies so thats probably on top of that

I tend to do 2 shops a year, birthday and Christmas when I have spare money! Usually around £100 each time, and then the odd £10 here and there if I need something or more for an event. My son I just top up throughout the year, £20 here and there when I have it.
