cost per wear

Found that perfect item? Is it worth the price? Think about this: cost per wear.

For example, If you need a dress for a fancy event and it is $300 and you only plan on wearing it once- cost per wear: $300. If you find a pair of jeans that fit you like a glove and are $200 but you plan on wearing them 200 times this year- cost per wear: $1. (And as far as jeans go, if you do find that perfect pair- BUY THEM! If you can afford to buy two pairs- do! One to wear with flats and one to wear with heels.)

Granted, you can’t substitute the jeans for the fancy dress. However, if you decide you will only wear the $300 dress to this one event- maybe you should look for one that is less expensive or a dress that will serve multiple purposes.

This will help to put your purchases in perspective of how much an item is worth to you based on how often you think you will wear it.
