A new survey found that the average person has 26 clothing items that basically never see the light of day. And 65% of people say they have unworn clothes that still have the tags on them.
Just 6% of people claim they have worn everything they own at least once.
So why do we have stuff we don’t wear? 20% say they keep clothing for “sentimental reasons,” so maybe they’re gifts or they’ve been passed down from family members.
31% say they’ve bought stuff on a whim, but then realized it didn’t really suit them. And others say they intend on wearing the clothes, they just got “buried.”
