Now that you are armed with an understanding of cost-per-wear you can see how choosing to buy well-constructed, quality clothes that you will wear frequently is the cornerstone of an economical, small closet.
However, there is yet one more point to highlight in the economics of a small wardrobe: frequency and number of purchases. When your wardrobe is carefully edited down to only the clothes that you wear frequently, you will become much more attuned to knowing when it is time to replace a garment or an outfit. Not only will you have the perfect number of outfits in your closet, but you will only be purchasing clothing when you need to replace something. You'll never find yourself buying too many shirts or too many trousers. You'll never be purchasing those "great" pieces that end up being closet orphans because you have nothing to wear them with. You'll never have to guess whether or not an article of clothing will come in handy.
You will only be spending money when you need to, and only on items that you know will serve your wardrobe needs. How liberating!
But in order to get to this magical point, you need to edit down your closet. And so we have come full circle. Here we have why paring down and giving away that 80% of your wardrobe that is non-functional is actually going to save you a great deal of money in the long run.
