How many shoes?!?

A recent survey finds that British women spend more than 34,000 pounds on footwear in their lifetime.  That's the equivalent to nearly $54,000!  The survey shows those women buy an average of 13 pairs of shoes each year, spending about $900 annually.  I guess they have really big shoe closets!

But, seriously, who REALLY spends that kind of money on shoes?  I'm not saying you shouldn't buy 13 pair of shoes in a particular year for whatever reason.  But 13 pair EVERY year?!?  I think it's a bit much.  About a month ago, one of my cousins made fun of me because I have 20 pair of shoes, from formal heels to sneakers to snow boots.  He thought it was too much.  But, apparently, I am not caught up in my shoe shopping by British standards!
