This month I started out with $26 left over from last month's budget, sold $70 worth of clothes on ebay, and had my regular $200 clothing budget for a total of $296. I continued to knock out my wish list. I shopped for shoes that wouldn't hurt my knees. I went on a vacation and did a lot of shopping, but not a ton of buying. For each new thing I bought, I tried to get rid of one thing from my wardrobe.
Here's what I bought:
1) H&M white blouse $25; 2) Gap trench coat $65; 3) Vince leggings $30 via Nordstrom Rack; 4) Target sandals $35; 5) H&M belt $18; 6) Wallet from Etsy
Thrift purchases (not pictured):
Skinny dark jeans from savers $8, Target dress from Goodwill $4.50, black kitten heels from Value Village $4, $9 cream peplum Forever 21 top from Buffalo Trading, $4 white t-shirt from Goodwill, $2 tank from Goodwill, and $4 black drapy top from Goodwill.
TOTAL: $218.50 ($77.50 under budget)
As usual, I tried a lot of things that I returned. The desire to never pack and ship another pair of shoes will hopefully keep me from shopping a bit in the future!
How did you all do? Does $218 sound like a lot to spend in a month? It does to me, I'm hoping to slow down a bit in June...See all the bugeting bloggers here on Franish.
