New research shows that the average Irish woman spends €200 on clothes, citing they'll "get loads of wear out of it" as their number one motivation for a new purchase.

The survey conducted by One4All Crumlin surveyed 590 adults with 87% making a less than shocking confession that they love shopping.

However, one in five buys one new item a week, with 90% racking up a €200 bill every month on clothing alone. 38% say they go shopping once a month.

And 60% use shopping as an excuse to cheer themselves up, they admitted. But the number one excuse is:  “I’ll get loads of wear out of it” when it comes to justifying putting their hand in their pockets for some new style.

As for what they do with unwanted pieces? 74% donate their items to charity.

The One4All gift card has teamed up to raise funds for CMRF Crumlin from May 9th-17th, donating 50c to the charity ever time you purchase an item using the gift card.  Brown Thomas, Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, Arnotts and Life Style Sports have also agreed to do donate an addition 50c if you use your gift card there.
