According to the book the average person in the United States acquires about fifty-two items of clothing per year. Can this really be the case? Does each sock count as one item? I begin to wonder how many new pieces I buy or otherwise obtain each year. I will have to start keeping track. I generally think of myself as conservative in my buying habits, especially when it comes to clothing. I have a pretty generic, sensible librarian's wardrobe that I only occasionally update.
