    A notice on the wall of the second hand clothes shop

    Hello everybody!

    Although we have been getting more and more snowless winters for the past few years, at least here in Poland, people always react to frost and put on their warmest clothes when it is below zero outside. Today my wife and I paid a visit to our local second hand clothes shop and I saw a notice on the wall, which says:
    I have translated that into English. Which version suits you best?

    "A woman gets a kick out of having a wardrobe full of clothes. There is no need to skimp on (warm) clothes when it is cold outside" or "Having a wardrobe full of clothes makes a woman happy. There is no need to stint on (warm) clothes when it is cold outside" or "A woman is very glad/happy to have a wardrobe full of clothes. There is no need to skimp on (warm) clothes when it is cold outside".

    Thank you.

    I prefer No. 2 where you have made the key point, "having a wardrobe full of clothes", the subject.

    Me too, except that stint should be "skimp".
