September Budget

It's the end of another month, so that means it's time to link up with Fran and the other budgeting bloggers to share what we spent for the month. Here are my purchases for September:


1. Loft skinny jeans: $34.75
2. Old Navy Pixie pants: $25
3. Target boyfriend cardigan- oatmeal: $12
4. Target boyfriend cardigan- black: $12 (sorry didn't have a picture of that one!)

Total = $83.75

I did end up going above my monthly budget by $3.75, but everything I got was on sale, and everything was on my clothing wish-list (and the black cardigan was a replacement item for an old black cardigan I had). I've been keeping a wish-list of clothing items I'd like to get, so hopefully that will help me keep on track when I go shopping- that I can go shopping with a purpose instead of buying things here and there.

How did you do with your monthly spending?

    1. I'm hoping that keeping a list will make me more accountable for what I buy! (hopefully!)

  3. I think you went over by such a small fraction for items that you'll wear over and over again that you can absolutely forgive yourself. I got two of those Target cardigans (as you know), and I wish I bought more of them!

    1. I wish I would have gotten more too! Or gone earlier in the week when more of the colors/designs were in stock :)

    1. I definitely think I got my money's worth on the jeans- I pretty much wear them multiple times a week! haha

  5. I feel like everyone is getting their jeans at Loft lately. I have been on the hunt for a new pair for myself, but haven't tried on any at the Loft yet. I think you did really well this month!

    1. I'd never thought of looking at Loft either, but I really like how these fit and feel! I think this may be my new store for jeans!
