Whats in your closet?
Most women own a ton of clothes. But that doesn’t mean they actually wear them.
A new survey found the average woman has 103 things in her closet. BUT . . .
- She thinks 33% are too tight.
- 24% are too loose.
- She just flat out HATES 21% of them.
- And 12% are brand new with the tags still on.
- That only leaves 10% that she actually likes and wears . . . about 10 or 11 things. Out of A HUNDRED AND THREE things.
But that’s not all. The survey also found 47% of women say they struggle picking out what to wear to work, and 10% feel DEPRESSED when they open their closet.
(The survey didn’t look into men’s closets.)
There’s an old cliché that it’s better to look good than to FEEL good. I would say that counts as TERRIBLE advice . . . especially when someone takes it to the extreme like THIS.
A 35-year-old woman in Adelaide, Australia was recently helping a relative move . . . and she wore SUPER skinny jeans. She spent a few hours squatting to get stuff out of the kitchen cabinets and when she tried to walk right afterward, she COULDN’T.
Her calves were so swollen it was impossible to get the jeans off, and she had no feeling in her feet.
She was rushed to the hospital where they had to cut the jeans off . . . and she was there for FOUR DAYS before she could walk again.
The doctors who treated her said this should be a good warning about being careful with wearing skinny jeans . . . or at least being careful about what you do when you’re wearing them.
No matter how poor I get, I will NEVER give up my high speed Internet. My children could STARVE before I’d go back to waiting for a YouTube video to buffer. And I’m not alone.
A new survey found the top ten things people will give up when money gets tight . . . and the top ten things we consider untouchable no matter HOW poor we get.
The number one thing we’d give up if things got tight is . . .
- buying expensive jewelry
- Club and social memberships
- Expensive purses
- Gourmet foods
- Expensive cosmetics
- Maid service
- Costume jewelry
- Shopping for fancy clothes
- Satellite radio (Damn straight.)
And the number one thing they’d have to pry out of our cold, poor hands?
- Internet service
- Basic cell phone service
- Basic cable
- Our cell phone data plan
- Upgrading our cell phone
- Shopping for clothes on sale
- Premium cable channels
