March Budget

Another budget post, another month where I was 100% sure I would go over but somehow managed not to. Between the Tieks, the Hunter boots, and this raincoat that made its way into my life for a less than 24 hours (pretty sure J. Crew changed their sizing - my usual size was HUGE on me) I was way in the hole for a while there. Between a few sales (and a few giftcards!) I managed to stay under. I got some great pieces too, like some fun sandals for the pool this summer, the blingiest earrings ever, and lots of tassels. I also gave my sister my rain boots last month and then freaked out when I saw a million days of rain in our forecast so I decided to spring for a new pair of Hunters. This time I went a size bigger and got the Touring boots (which are more flexible and lighter so you can travel with them) and so far I've been reaching for them a lot more than my last pair. So anyway,  here's how I did for March:

LOFT Striped Tassel Scarf - originally $39.50, on sale $29.50, used coupon $4.50, used giftcard $0
LOFT Tee - Originally $29.50, on sale $17.70 used giftcard $0
BaubleBar Earrings - originally $38, on sale + used points $24.80
Old Navy Fringe Sandals - originally $22.94, on sale + used credits $11.76
Hunter Touring Boots - $150
Sole Society Tassel Bag - originally $54.95, on sale $46.71
LOFT Striped Tunic - originally $59.50, on sale $35.70, used gift card $0
Old Navy Dress - originally $34.94, on sale $13.43 (not pictured)

Total Spent: $246.74
Total Saved: $54.09

I had to schedule this post in advance (thanks for dying on me, laptop!) so a couple more items probably came this week that could have been included in this month, but if I like them I'll save them for April's post instead. Summer dresses and skirts are my absolute favorite things to shop for so I'm sure I have lots of those in my future! I'm also looking for a new pair of dress pants or a work dress for going to events - we used to have a uniform but now can wear whatever business wear we want.

Did you budget this month? How did you do?
