Budgeting Bloggers: October 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 receive a small commission through affiliate links and brand collaborations.  During the months that I receive money from Ebates and Skimlinks, that amount will also go towards my clothing budget.  This month's budget was $148.

 Stitch Fix October 2014 1

I bought a casual top from Stitch Fix this month.  It was $48.

target plaid scarf

I did it.  I bought the infamous Target/Zara/what-have-you scarf.  I think the colors are gorgeous and it's very soft.  This was $23.46.

gap dress pants

I had a little credit on thredUP burning a whole in my proverbial pocket.  I stalk Gap pants on thredUP like ... I don't know what.  I wanted some straight or boot cut pants for work this winter, so I snatched these up fast.  They were $13.92.

lucky emmie flats

My Target flats finally bit the dust.  The sole was coming away from the shoe, and for some reason they were starting to hurt my feet.  I took a chance on these Lucky Emmie flats in bourbon.  They are so comfortable.  I'd seen them for about $60 most places online, but I found them on Amazon for $44 (plus a little tax).  Um, yes.  These quickly became my I-don't-care-if-they-don't-go-with-everything-wear-them-with-everything shoes.  They actually have some water stains right now, because I walked through a wet soccer field.  I need to sit down and work out the stains.

Budget       $148.00

Total            132.57

Balance         15.43

I'm pretty happy with my purchases from this month.  I have worn the shoes and shirt a ton, but I haven't worn the scarf or pants yet.  I'll probably bust those out this week, since it's supposed to be cold!

Linking up with Fran.
