I am so happy to have my jeans! I don't "splurge" on a lot of things. I am one of those that used to get buyers' remorse if I spent x amount or more on one item. But ever since my understanding of cost per wear and the value of wardrobe real estate, I don't let "splurges" bother me.
Plus, that's three more pair to keep clean, fold, put away, etc.
A lot of time is spent caring for what we have, so the less we have, the more time we'll save taking care of it.
