Are there any clothing items that you have in multiples? Why?


  1. Stripes in tops, skirts, and dresses
  2. White skirts
  3. Obi belts

I have way more than I should, but every striped top is different and every white skirt is different, I SWEAR.

(Same goes for obi belts.)

Why do I keep buying them?

Because they’re classics! They’re also comforting, I know I love them and reach for them, and the style combination is timeless.

Stripes are my favourite print, and I really like pinstripes in blue and white, look how great it looks in this cotton bustier!


Then obi belts because they make any outfit look different and make my waist look super small:

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Long sleeved t-shirts, tank tops, 3″ pumps and Lululemon zippered tops. They’re all different colours, and they do get worn a lot. I used to have multiples of shirts in the same colour, but I don’t have any currently. I stopped buying multiples of the same style of jeans when I started buying better jeans, so they lasted longer.

      I was nodding along until I got to 3″ pumps.

      I FORGOT ABOUT MY HEELS! I own no less than 4 pairs of exactly 3.25″ Manolo Blahnik *thrifted* heels in various leathers 🙂 Once you find what works, you stick with it.

    I definitely have multiples…..jeans, tee shirts, sneakers, cable knit sweaters, polo shirts. Some in different sizes but mostly in different colors. Or in the situation with jeans, slim fit, flare, straight leg. I also buy an extra item if it is something I absolutely love and I fear that when ever it wears out, it won’t be available any longer.

      I thought I was the only one 🙂

    I have multiple of a couple of cardigans – a total staple for me because I’m always cold and very susceptible to temperature changes.

    I think I have a lot of multiples in regard to certain colours. And quite a bit of pink in various shades, surprisingly – not really a pink kinda gal, but it’s one of the best colours on me, so I have quite a few pink tops and one or two dresses.

      What kind of pink? Magenta? That would look stunning on you.
