April Budget

Every month I post about my clothing budget. My budget per month is $300, which to some may seem like a lot and to others a little, but feels just right for me. You can read my thoughts on my 2015 budget here

Well this month's budget post is a little confusing - I went to the outlet mall and actually bought a bunch of stuff, which of course isn't available online. Lately I haven't had any patience for malls, but I stopped by the Aurora Premium Outlets on my way home from volunteering a couple of weekends ago determined to find some new business-appropriate attire for my trip to San Francisco last week, and oh did I find a few things ;) I had to hold myself back from buying up everything. And while I found some cute businessy items, I also came home with this adorable striped sweatshirt, because who can say no to a sweatshirt that's 1000x cuter than any other sweatshirt? Anyway, here's the damage for April:

J. Crew Factory Sweatshirt - originally $69.50, on sale $35.25
J. Crew Factory Tee Dress - Originally $98, on sale $59.50
J. Crew Factory Striped Popover - originally $64.50, on sale $37.50

Ann Taylor Factory Striped Skirt (similar) - originally $89.99, on sale $36.00
The Limited Factory Dress (similar) - originally $109.95, on sale $55.47

Total Spent: $223.72
Total Saved: $208.22

Honestly I'm not really surprised that I was under budget again since I didn't do a ton of shopping in April besides my outlet mall binge, but I do feel an over budget month on the horizon. I have a couple of trips coming up which means, of course, I need things (ahem, not really, but you know), plus summer clothes are my favorite so I'm sure I'll be spending a lot in May & June.

Did you budget in April? How did you do?
