How much should I be spending on my clothes? | Ask Metafilter. It is a bit of a puzzle to figure out what you should spend money on and what should be considered disposable. Here is to hoping Old Navy continues to offer the V-neck t-shirts I rely on to replenish once a year.

    That ghost costume is fantastic! At $149 its also terribly expensive, but crafty types could probably easily recreate it with some tulle from their local fabric stores. Love it!

    I buy Old Navy v-necks every year, too. I just love the material they’re made out of – thicker than tee.

    Actually, I buy them this time of year quite often – when they go on sale – and save them for the next Spring and Summer.

    I wonder how many of us there are out there.

    I almost pitched the catalog straight into the recycling, but Martha’s ghost costume was one of the coolest costumes I’ve seen. Now if only I could wander over the moors on a misty night . . . that would make it totally worth $149.

    re: “what is worth the price,” people talking about smartwool (and other wool) socks. I have to agree. And I knit my own socks – and felt much better shelling out $16 or so for a 100 g ball of wool sockyarn when I saw that that was about what Smartwool socks cost.

    Even though I live in a climate where it’s too hot in the summers to wear socks at all, I love my wool socks for the cooler months.
