How many clothes do you think you own? How much did they cost? Well, I counted my wardrobe and I have 316 items of clothing, which may seem like a lot. You’re probably thinking I spent a lot on those clothes, too. When you walk into nearly any clothing store, you see jeans for $60, basic T-shirts for $30 and dresses for $55. However, I didn’t spend nearly that much on my wardrobe. Of my 316 pieces, 203 were thrifted for about $3 a piece. For this reason and many more, I realized thrifting is the best way to shop.
