How much do you spend on fitness and workout clothes?

I realized I haven't bought anything in over a year and I need some new stuff. Do you guys buy new stuff all the time? Advice?

I work out almost every day and I do laundry once a week. So every time I go down a size, I buy 3-5 pairs of bottoms (I cut the too-big ones into shorts and use them to make up the rest of what I need) and 4-6 t-shirts.

I also replace t-shirts whenever the sweat stains/fade marks become visible from the outside.

I buy new sports bras 2 at a time whenever my current ones start looking tired.

I'm always buying socks because the dryer eats them like candy.

New sneakers are on the cards every 6 months.

i buy new stuff frequently like the previous poster. i look to my lower sizes as a reward too. for instance, i buy my everyday workout clothes at target or the basic stuff at the sporting goods store, but for a reward i splurge on something really really nice. i replace my running shoes every 300 miles. it's good to keep your feet happy, it prevents so many injuries!
