Statistically, the average woman owns up to 30 outfits for various needs in today’s society, a month’s worth of attire. In the 1930s that number was only nine. With so many outfits to choose from, you’re going to need shoes to go along with them, and consequently, a lot of closet space.
Whether you live in a big city like New York or you’re trying to fit more onto a tiny shared dorm room for college, the modern woman will eventually run out of space for all her ever-expanding wardrobe. Essentially, at some point, most Americans have more stuff than they have room in their closet. There are roughly 300,000 items in the average American home, and that’s a great thing, but it can also be overwhelming.
