So... if we (you and I) were to make two shopping trips a year, when might those be scheduled? I am envisioning a weekend together in that big city near me, with you flying in (my dime) and us hitting the shops. I could even bring a suitcase full of the clothes I plan to keep (you could tell me which ones I should, what do you call it? biff) If you take out the cost of hotel and food, how much $$ would I need to allocate? Spring and Fall? Coincide with any particular sale? It would be like "What Not to Wear" with 1/10th the budget.
- Yes! What fun!
- When? September and April.
- How many $$? One-third of your annual clothing budget per trip.
- Readers help: Do you know the precise timing of any unbeatable sales?
Then the real trick is how to make sure you can wrap your spending plan around all the items you need.
