According to www.stylist.com:
The total reportedly includes underwear, $39; a skirt, $44; top, $33; knitwear, $57; coat, $94; tights, $6; shoes, $75; watch, $112; and jewelry, $552. A woman's purse, $155, and its contents -- including a $155 phone and cash, tickets, and passes amounting to $213 -- were also reportedly included, resulting in a grand total of $1,534.28.
$39 for underwear? Really? Maybe before I had kids, I'd spend half that on a pair of cute panties and a fancy bra, but now? This average woman refuses to spend more than a couple of dollars on a pair of underwear and when I do buy them, I make sure they're comfortable...
coat or jacket...) I'm a bargain hunter. But that can work against me, as well. I've purchased things I didn't even really like or need, because they're cheap.
"Hey! Look at this ugly shirt! It's only $2.00! I have to buy it! It's only $2.00!"
Of course, if I added all those $2.00 purchases up, I might be able to afford something for $21.00. So, needless to say, the shirt I have on right now did not cost $33.00 More like $8.00. My "knitwear", aka sweatpants (or yoga pants when I'm feelin' fancy) cost about $10.00. And my purse? I bought it at a purse party and I think I spent about $40 on it. I splurged. I felt like a real big spender. And I can guarantee that there is not $213.00 worth of stuff in it. There's some Kleenex, a crunched up fortune cookie, some crayons, gum, chapstick, a granola bar, sunglasses (which were $4.80 at Kohl's!), my generic leatherman (you never know when you might have to build something), a wet wipe from Buffalo Wild Wings and my wallet (which has about $6.00 in it). There's some other miscellaneous junk and some coins lurking in the bottom. But definitely not enough to equal $200.
Granted, it's Sunday and I'm more lax than usual, I am in a variation of my stay at home mom uniform. Yoga pants, t-shirt, sweatshirt, fuzzy socks (it's cold outside!)...my total outfit maybe cost $30.00. If I put shoes on, I'd still only equal about $50.00. So, I'm $1,484.28 away from being average.
Tell me I'm not alone.
