October Budget

So I know I said I was going to try to stay below budget this month, but I'm not sure what happened, because I am waaaaaaay below. I just wasn't very into the shopping thing this month. I was really busy so I didn't hit any stores in person, and all of the online sales just exhausted me. The couple of things I did get I absolutely love - the two striped tops are kind of basics and are something I definitely needed in my closet, and the scarf I basically want to wear every day.

Here's the damage for October:


Loft Striped Zip Shoulder Tee - originally $39.50, on sale $19.75
Loft Striped Sweatshirt Tee - originally $39.50, on sale $19.75

Total Spent: $56.49
Total Saved: $39.50

I'd say this certainly balances out my overspending in September! Next month, I'm going to try to hold back too since it'll be the start of present season, but I am looking to pick up one of the laptop bags I had my eye on - maybe on Black Friday?

How'd you do this month?

  3. I bought a similar scarf from Brina Box and I'm patiently waiting for it to arrive on my doorstep. It would be cute to pair with those striped tops you bought.

  6. I came in $0.32 under budget? Haha. Even if it was a small haul, I'm still loving everything you picked up!

  7. I can't even imagine only spending $56 in a month! I went overboard this month. I was incredibly stressed at work and kept online purchasing! I need to take some inspiration from you!

  8. Daaang girl you went way below! Nice work! I'm sure you'll be living in all 3 of these pieces- they're so classic and go with everything! I haven't been feeling as "shopaholic" recently, yet I managed to buy a new coat yesterday. So there's that.

  11. Yeah I've been doing laundry freaking all the time so I can wear them over and over hahaha. Coats always fall under needs, not wants, right? That's how I'd justify it ;)
