London: Singer Susan Boyle reportedly donated her old clothes to a charity shop and then bought them back.

The `Britain`s Got Talent` star spent 250 pounds for the clothes at the store near her home after having a change of mind, reported Sun Online.

"Susan`s PA was clearing out her house and came across what she thought were old clothes. She put them in bin bags and donated them to a charity shop after getting permission from her.

"Days later, Susan realised she`d made an error and went back to the shop to buy them back. She convinced herself over time she needed them. She was just being tough with her wardrobe," a source said.

The 52-year-old`s friends have been encouraging her to spend some of her 20 million pounds fortune on herself.

They insist her wardrobe has barely changed since she became famous and say it`s about time she splashed out on designer threads. But Susan is known to be reluctant to spend.
