Any man who lives with a woman can tell you how he has been given a small cupboard to store his clothes whereas the woman of the house occupies the rest of the entire wardrobe.
Statistics have clearly revealed that 62% of women store clothes in their wardrobe which they have never worn, many with the tags still intact. Let us understand why such a large group of women have a huge stock of unworn clothes;
Women often hold on to old clothes even after they know that they will never wear them because these cloths remind them of old and good memories. Throwing them away might be a painful process hence they stack them far behind in their wardrobe instead of disposing them.
Trying to Lose Weight to Fit into Old Cloths:
This is the major reason why a woman’s wardrobe is full of clothes. The increase in the percentage of overweight and obese women trying to lose weight leads to them holding onto their old cloths. The owners do not want to throw them away as they are waiting to lose weight to fit into them. This leads to storing excess cloths in a wardrobe corresponding to all ranges of weight.
Buying Aspirational Sized Clothes:
Many potential dieters who are trying to lose weight shop for clothes a size smaller than their current size for motivation. This leads to an unnecessary future shopping and adding a greater number of unused clothes in the wardrobe.
Waiting for Old Fashion to Return:
Many women do not want to throw away out-of-fashion expensive clothes just because they are waiting for the fashion to come back. This is definitely possible and when the fashion returns, you will save lots of money, but the only downside is that these clothes would occupy space in your wardrobe and will not be used for quite some time.
The most common reason a woman shops is for irrational reasons such as shopping for passing time or for mood lifting. Many women, when stressed out, go shopping to get relaxation and satisfaction.
Majority of women wait for the sale season to start and shop for items which they do not even need, ‘why?’, because they think they are saving lots of money by buying discounted items well in advance than paying full price later in the future. Well we all know this is mere psychological reasoning and more than half of the item’s women buy is just because it has a 50% discount tag hanging from it.
We are not judging a woman here for going on a shopping spree or overloading her wardrobe, this is a personal choice. An easier way for you to store your sentimental clothes or the ones you plan on wearing in the future is to rent a public-storage in Walnut Creek to store away all your valuable possessions safely. This would let you preserve your old clothes and reuse them whenever you wish to, without overloading your wardrobe.
