From the wardrobe audits I do…

06Jul10

From the believe it or not category…  the average wardrobe holds around $8000 worth of unused or underused clothing.   The calculation from  www.FatCat.com.au makes this assessment or the presumption that most women own 100 significant items of clothing.   If the average cost of each piece is $100 (totaling $10,000) and if the owner is only wearing 20% of the clothes 80% of the time, $8000 is being wasted.  Worth thinking about.

That is based on the 80/20 rule, but from the wardrobe audits I do, it seems that most people wear only 10 per cent of their wardrobe 90 per cent of the time.

  1. It is a funny coincidence that I should read this today. Last week I went through part of my wardrobe and noticed that some clothes that I really had forgotten about because I never wear them.
    I took a few items to charity shops, and the other ‘forgotten’ items I vowed to wear at least once to make up my mind as to whether I should keep them.
    Today I am wearing a blouse from the forgotten selection and am really pleased that I found it again.
    This has almost been like a cash free shopping trip.
