    I usually don’t buy clothing every month, but I spend a couple hundred dollars every six months, almost exclusively on work clothing,

    It just depends – some months I spent a lot (like at the beginning of a season) and some months hardly any.  I buy more clothes than my Fiance (I usually end up buying most of his too). 


    As a side note, I’m a huge fan of combined accounts for bills, savings, etc, but individual accounts for purchases like these!

    I’ve been buying more clothes/shoes/accessories as we get closer and closer to the wedding.  But, I usually don’t spend that much on clothes… I voted $30-$60/month on average. 

    Fiance pretty much knows about everything I buy… he knows girls will be girls, haha.  Laughing

    Right now, not so much.  I have $50 in our budget for it but I don’t really even spend that much.  I will probably spend more when I get a job (and need to buy work clothes)!

    I spend anywhere from $150-300 a month on clothing.  If not more.  But I also work 3 jobs in order to achieve this lifestyle & one of these jobs is at a clothing store where I get a discount.

    One day I want to actually buy a piece of clothing and not have a specific need to buy it.  Right now all of my clothing purchases are reactionary, money is tight and I just can’t justify buying something unless I have a reason to need it. 

    For example this week I had a job interview, and needed a new pair of khaki’s for it since my old pair is uncomfortable (can’t bear to get into a workout routine again after all the stress of staying fit for the wedding).  I wore a shirt that I bought for our e-pics with my new pants.  I hope this job comes through because then we will be on our way to buying things for fun!!

    It really just depends. Last month I spent about $400 on new clothes (a couple tops, a pair of shorts, jacket). But before that I hadn’t bought anything new for 3.5 months. I also tend to buy more in the summer because that is when my paycheck is higher.

    I guess it averages out to about $100 a month?

    We are not purchasing anything extra that is not wedding related right now, so I currently do not have a clothing budget.

    it depends… i go on little spurts of buying clothes. last month it was $0…. this month, $500. i know i know, bad! but in my defense i haven’t gone clothes shopping since december.

    closer to the wedding it will be all wedding expenses for me, no extras. Innocent

    I usually spend around $150-$200 per month but now that the wedding is closer I’m forcing myself not to buy anything non-wedding related…it’s getting difficult as summer approaches!

    I’m probably over $200…I won’t say exactly how much cuz then you’ll all think I’m bananas. It’s mostly because I’m purse and shoe obsessed!! Like for real. But while planning the wedding, I have limited myself and I’m proud of that.

    I budget for about $100 a month, but some months I don’t buy any, and some months I spend more. I think it averages out 🙂
