It's amazing the amount of money I've spent on clothes over the year and how quickly the clothes devalue. On a recent post-closet cleaning trip I've decided to give the local the consignment store dibs on the clothes before I donate it. It's surprising and sad to hear that the clothes are not worth much if anything, especially shoes. It reminds me of cars: losing half their value when they leave the dealership parking lot.
That teaches me a lesson in buying clothes.
