What do you suggest I do if I feel I don't have enough clothes?

Every month I get $50 to spend on clothes. I can save the money if I want but I usually spend it all right when I get it because I feel I need more clothes fast. I live 45 minutes away from the closest mall and clothing stores so I do a lot of shopping online. I try to shop at cheap stores like Forever 21 but I still feel like I repeat so many things in my wardrobe. What should I do to feel I have plenty of clothes?

Go on YouTube and watch videos of starving children in Africa, they're dressed in rags and lucky to have that much on them. It'll make you appreciate what you already have.

I appreciate everything I own I just feel I should spend my money on cheaper things to get more out of it. I asked for advice, not an insult.

It wasn't an insult, sorry if you took it that way.

If you feel like you have plenty of clothes, then you should create a budget for your money and find something else to shop. You can also trade off some of the clothes that you no longer wear to create room for new once. A budget is the best way to go about it when it comes to spending.

Sounds as if you may be a bit of a shopaholic. Dont continue buying more clothes if it endangers your other obligations. - Figure how many days you could go without wearing the same outfit twice. -Do you have something appropriate for all the events you commonly engage in? I think at some point you can gain a good assessment of your needs based on these two criteria.

Sounds pretty bad you should try to make a plan schedule on what to wear but don't buy cloths if you have too much or overwise you will no have enough room for some stuff that you might need.And try to think stuff other then cloths like shoes or jewelry anything at all besides cloths cause sounds like you have your self a clothing problem

Be happy about what you have. My family is so poor, me getting 50 bucks a month even is like a dream.

Your young and you have your whole life ahead of you. Give your self time and wait till you get a good paying job by then you will be able to get whatever you want. In today world fashion styles come and go like seasons so there will be plenty more for you to choose in the future...for now research the latest styles and see what is available out there at reasonable prices. By the way what ever you don't want take it to a salvation army place and you will hopefully make a little girl happy too. Good luck.

If you truly don't have as much clothes as you feel comfortable with, then make sure when you spend your monthly $50 on things you need, instead of just this cute shirt you love even if you have plenty just like it. :) Also, if you want to get more clothes you can go to places like Goodwill instead of, say, Hollister. Trust me, I go to Goodwill all the time and I've gotten some really nice clothes. My friend got a dress there for $5 and then she looked it up online and its original price in stores was a few hundred dollars. Good luck!
