I was amazed recently when flicking through the TV channels to land on a programme where the presenter had this woman lay out all her clothes and the value was well over £30,000 including clothes that she would never fit into again, stuff she hadn't worn for years etc.
It reminded me of when we visit my SIL who has so many clothes that her entire walk in wardrobe, plus the built in wardrobes in two more spare rooms, are full of her clothes, some of which I know are from years ago. That's not counting drawers!
I've never had a lot of clothes, and since I no longer work my wardrobe is paired down to one hanging area in our room and my coats and jackets hang in the spare room wardrobe, I have about 6 in total (not counting fleeces!)
I haven't started this thread to judge anyone, and I do keep some of my clothes for years, but mostly I turf things out that I haven't worn for a year or so. I am really amazed at people who have mountains of clothes and shoes and handbags, when you have only one body and one pair of feet and hands! I do have a lot of scarves, mostly because I knit
