Budgeting Bloggers: August 2014

This year, I will be documenting my monthly clothing budget.  I will show you my budget for each month and what I bought with it.  Every month, I have $60 to spend towards clothing.  Some months might be more, because I use Ebates to shop online and use a small commission through affiliate links.  During the months that I receive money from Ebates and Skimlinks, that amount will also go towards my clothing budget (this month!  yay!).  This month my budget was $209.49.

I did really good this month!  Since I didn't have a lot of time to shop, I only bought things through the subscription services I've been using (Stitch Fix and Rocksbox).

Stitch Fix August 2014 5

From Stitch Fix, I bought a top and cardigan.  This is the Chris & Carol Wilam Zig-Zag Print Top and the 41Hawthorn Abrianna Long Sleeve Cardigan in navy.  I love these two items so much!  Even though it's still summer (AND SO HOT) here, my office is pretty cold.  The top is eye-catching and comfortable, and the cardigan fits me perfectly.  These two items were $112 (that's including the $20 styling fee).

Rocksbox August 2014 4

From Rocksbox, I purchased this House of Harlow 1960 Five Station Necklace in cobalt.  This necklace runs for $75 regular price, and it would have been $60 through Rocksbox (they give a 20% discount).  I had completed a survey for a $15 credit, so this was $45.  After a quick google search to try and find it at a cheaper price, I couldn't find it cheaper than $45.  That clenched it for me!  I love it!!

Here's my budget break down:

Budget       $209.49

Stitch Fix   $112.00
Rocksbox      45.00

Total          $157.00

Balance      $  52.49

I literally have no time to go shopping, so I am super happy with what I purchased this month.  I've already gotten my next Stitch Fix and Rocksbox.  I haven't decided what to keep yet, but I'll be sharing all that next month!
