Do you spend more on clothes than games this year?

Yes 11 23.91%
 
No 35 76.09%
 
Total:46

Probably vinyls>games>clothes.
Getting a record player turned out to be pretty dangerous for my wallet, even though i bought way more second hand stuff.

Clothes only get expensive if i buy new trekking shoes or hiking boots.

Maybe videogames?
I've barely bought clothes in the past 4 years. This year I did a refreshing of my clothing so I spent quite a bit, but I feel they even out in the long run.
Don't spend particularly much in either.



video games by far, way too far to be honest.



 

More pictures of these amazing shoes. All I need to do is cut my hair short probably military look and then look Fly as fuck tattoe or 2 and few things then I'd be Fly as fuck. Sadly dont want to cut my hair and I'm not tattoeing myself anytime soon though I heard tattoes are bad for diabetics :/

Edit : if I cut my hair I'd be a catch in certain city in California clubbing me thinks O.O

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I mean games stop you from ever having to wear clothes on a regular basis. Easy savings. My work provides a set uniform, and when I go out I typically wear some merchandise sweater or t-shirt from an electronic musician or YouTuber, and sweatpants. I also keep my shoes very tidy so I don't need to get a new pair every half year when they get too dirty. My shoes can last a year before they start tearing apart.

People who buy into all these new clothing trends are the ones complaining about not being able to afford a house by age 30. Video games are the ultimate money saver.

Nah, I only buy clothes when necessary, and when it is, I usually don't buy anything expensive. Meanwhile, this year is probably already the year I've spent the most money on games (and that's considering the Switch I got was nearly free), with 5 months still to go.

Edit: that said, I'm a small money person. Quickly putting the numbers together, I've spent roughly $300 on gaming this year (~$450 if you include the TV I got), so it's not like it's loads of money too. Of course, with at least Okami and Smash on the way, and maybe another couple games throughout the rest of the year, that number could end a good bit higher but I guess it's still not that much for my highest ever spending year. Comparatively, when it comes to clothes, well, I'm still young enough that I never actually paid for anything I wear. That day will probably come soon, but when it does, I'll probably continue to spend very little.

Clothes= $0

Video games= $60 or $120 if there are 2 games buy like in 2015 for COD BO3 and Halo 5.

So my answer is video games.

Proud to be a Californian.

I've spent a lot this year on games and game accessories, would say over a grand maybe close to two but then with clothes last year I bought a ton of clothes (found a look I liked, bought the same outfit in multiples and put many into storage but this year my spending on clothes is effectively zero, even shoes I just got a few boxes of the same type last year.

The only thing which might rival games would be figures for me, have a bad habbit of dropping large amounts of cash on Star Trek models, between little die cast ones which cost in the region of 20-40 up to a few I have which are triple figures but only one of those was gotten this year, oh... looking to my left reminds me I got a large Mercy figure this year also... but then also spent €15 on that amazing charity skin which kinda balances it out a bit.

But aye for the OP question, 0 on cloths, tons on gaming and more on nerd culture and accessories in general.

(can I technically count my new projector as a gaming spend as well? :o that was over €500 and is almost exclusively used for gaming)

 

 

ps glad you enjoy the Jordans in the OP video :) They look pretty awesome, as for getting a tattoo as a diabetic... it's just a series of injections along with ink isn't it? I mean... if you're a type one you're going to be doing 4 a day anyways, I didn't look into it because I really don't like tattoos at all, but I can't see how it would be bad for you?

Link suggests as long as everything else is fine with you, it should be NP, just they mention obviously the slower healing abilities of a diabetic so you'll be in pain for a bit longer because of it.

Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

You guys genuinely scare me. I've seen many saying they didn't buy clothes at all in the past years... that's worrisome. As the years go by, I feel like we're living in a post apocalyptic fashion world where people dress as beggars, only with leftovers, lack of coherence, mismatching colors, etc.

I wonder why this is happening. In the past people were self aware and cared about looking good and had basic fashion knowledge, but not today



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

It's called a point of view. Personally, I'm scared that someone could spend $8500 on clothes in half a year. I mean, dude, $8500!! I'm not sure I ever spent that much money my whole life (not including expenses paid by other people of course).

I have absolutely no reason to buy new clothes if I have enough variety currently available. All I need is a few shirts, pants, socks, underwear, shoes and jackets for each situation (home/outside, cold/warm) and I'm good to go. 3 or 4 options for each situation, it's very much enough as long as you do a thing called "laundry". I always try to look alright when I'm going anywhere, but I don't need $8500-high standards for that, I can get by with cheaper stuff.

I've many more things to care about than my appearance.
