And speaking of budgets...

If you were absolutely guaranteed a very comfortable retirement at 55 years old if you just stuck to a clothes and shoe budget of $200 per year from now until then, never ever going over, could you (would you) do it?

Not that that's my situation at all, but I'm trying really hard to change the way I think about money and all the stupid crap I spend it on.

Are we talking per person? Well, I would sure as hell try. With an older husband, I knew at a very young age how important it is to plan ahead for retirement.
This is coming from someone that rotates the same go to V-neck shirts from Target. I can't remember the last time I bought an article of clothing from anyplace other than Target.
With that said, when I reach my goal in terms of health, I am buying myself some decent clothes.

Um, I am going to be honest here & go with probably NOT!! I love the shop, I don't have to have the most expensive articles, I just love new things, I especially love shopping for Alexee, girls are just so much fun to shop for! My husband worries about the retirement way more than me, you can't take it with you when you go, right! So have some fun!!
