Have you purchased more or fewer clothes than normal since the pandemic began?

The answer to this question could go either way: Either you’re not buying clothes because you’re not seeing other people and/or going out in public, or you’ve been buying more clothes than normal because you’re stuck inside and what the heck else is there to do other than online shop?!

Since the pandemic started have you purchased more or fewer clothes than you normally do? If yes, why? And if no, why? And hey, if you’re currently online shopping while you answer this poll, there’s no judgment.

Oh, and if you haven’t bought any new pajamas recently, we highly suggest getting yourself a pair of RV-themed PJs. (Psst: Those make a great gift too…)

I’ve bought less. I was very ill for a couple years-lost 60 lbs- and bought new clothes 2 years ago.. My legs have shortened, so I need to try on clothes to make sure I’m not walking on the hems. Didn’t want to shop in person till covid infection rates go way down in my state.

I sure wash my jackets and sweat shirts more often now though.

Along with the stay at home stuff, I’ve had teeth issues all year. Lost 30 lbs, am back in PT and moving again. Had to buy some new clothes that fit – not a bad thing.

Clicked on my buying habit hasn’t changed. As clothes wear out I buy replacements. I may add to my wardrobe occasionally, but since retirement simple and comfortable is my dress code. And I try to limit how much I have to haul around.

Workcamping this summer I lost about 35lbs! I celebrated by getting rid of clothes (especially pants) that no longer fit. Got rid of three pair replace with one pair. A win all the way around!

Still wearing the same clothes I wore at work, I retired almost two years ago and have no intentions on buying any more outer clothing as I am not out to impress anyone but my wife and she has been happy with my dress for over 51 years.

I don’t have much of a wardrobe – 2-3 pairs of jeans, some t-shirts, sweat shirts, a couple pairs of shoes. I don’t need more than that.

When I was old enough to help hitch up to the trailer my father instructed me to always keep a light coating of grease on the hitch ball. He said it was to help reduce friction between the two metals.I never had to replace a hitch ball because it was too badly damaged to use. Dad, I guess you were smarter than I gave you credit for.

…didn’t change because I didn’t buy clothes before the pandemic.

Must be something on your end, Mike. I’ve had no problems.
