Statistics, Facts, and Figures What’s up with the jeans in your closet? How many pairs of jeans do you own? At this very moment, I own 6 pairs...and I wear all 6 pairs on a regular basis. The average woman owns 7 pairs of jeans. 25% own 10 or more pairs. However, only 4 pairs are worn on a regular basis, usually the ones that fit the best. Most women wear them at least once a week, and very often more. These are good statistics to keep in mind if you’re trying to decide on a rough estimate of what to keep and what to donate. The average price American women pay for their jeans is roughly $35, with younger women often willing to spend more. I will admit my jeans run around $50 on average…and I have a few that cost me closer to $75. But I tend to wear all of my jeans a lot…and get very good use out of them. They have to be in pretty bad shape for me to part with them…which means I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of each purchase. Avoid clutter. At least 50% of women hold onto their “too small” jeans in hopes of someday being able to fit into them again. Try your best not to do this because doing so too often ends up in tons of clutter. Vow to only keep jeans (any clothing for this matter) that fit well today. Most women usually wash their jeans after 2-3 wearings (or when they show bagginess in the knees or butt, or when something gets spilled on them). Not washing them each and every time will result in the jeans lasting longer. That all being said, I’m a “wash after each wear” type of person. The most classic color and cut are dark wash, straight leg jeans. I prefer wearing dark jeans to light most of the time, but I have some with flared bottoms (often worn in fall and winter) that look fun over my boots. Keep jeans looking nice by washing inside out and don't put them in the dryer for the full cycle. Hang them until they’re dry, and then put them into the dryer for a quick tumble press to get those wrinkles out easily and to “soften” the fabric. (When you first buy jeans, wash before wearing them…and don’t wash them the first time with any light colors because the dye may bleed!) Store your jeans by folding them in half or thirds and laying them neatly in a dresser drawer (this is my method)…or you can hang them if you prefer.
