This comm hasn't been active in a long time -- but this sounds like this could be such an awesome community, so I'll give it the old DW try & post!

There are a lot of issues related to "enough" that I would love to talk about, but here's something to start:

How do you know when you have "enough" clothing? Have you ever felt like you had enough clothing? Is this feeling related at all to how much of your clothing you actually wear on a regular basis? Does the feeling fluctuate based on life situation (finances, new job, being a student, etc.)?

I've had to cut down my budget severely over the past couple of months & one of the things I've done is to stop buying clothing. Mostly it was thrifted or secondhand anyway, so not that much money.

I alternate between no interest in buying clothes -- I even thought I'd treat myself to spending £3 or £4 in a charity shop one day, but couldn't find the enthusiasm to go look -- & feeling this incredible sense of grumpiness because I can't buy any more clothes.

Ridiculous. I have a wardrobe stuffed, a dresser stuffed, & a few more clothes (bigger things like interview suits) on top of the wardrobe. I clearly have "enough" clothing. Not buying clothes has made me be more daring & thoughtful w/pairing up things I already have--because being bored w/my clothes would make it that much more likely that I'd break budget & go buy more--but I still have this itch for more sometimes.

I don't think fashion or personal style is a bad thing (I am not one of those radical simplicity people who only wears khakis & a black t-shirt, ha ha), but I wish I could decouple it from the urge to constantly be acquiring more clothing.

Thoughts?
