    I had some imaginary ideas of how much this was I was going to share along with an interesting anecdote or two.

    But, since I catalog everything I buy...


    42%/40%/18% for number of items.

    49%/48%/3% for dollars spent.

    I would conclude that I get way more things per dollar thrifting.

    I purchase the vast majority of my clothing, luggage, and accessories on sale or with a coupon that is at least 25% off (mainly due to the 10% local sales tax). I tend to hold off until sales or use my discount. The only items I've purchased at full price have been one pair of Alden longwings, on pre-order from Brick + Mortar. I attribute this not to frugality, but due to a lack of imminent need for an item, allowing me to wait for a sale or coupon code.

    I may end up paying full price for a Barbour jacket from Orvis, but we shall see.

    Discounted prices for 95% for almost wardrobe. I purchased a pair of shoes at retail this year but included matching belt for "free".

    Bulk of my stuff is MTM, so...
    Even for shoes I have to pay custom fee because Allen Edmonds doesn't make size 6D for all models.
