pluses: i sold the loft animal print skirt i felt indifferent about from my january spending post to a reader--i'm glad i was able to send it off to a new home and i hope you like it, if you're reading! i also sold quite a few items on ebay this month. i don't subtract those sales from my monthly budget, but i now have a cushion of money in my paypal account i can use towards anything i may want to purchase online in the future that accepts paypal. not sure if this makes sense or not, but it's how i figure it in my mind.
minuses: unfortunately i'm not that excited about anything i purchased this month aside from the magenta blazer. tights--sure, i need 'em and they were a good price, but not all that exciting. i also think i got a little too excited about the old navy oxfords because i'm not as in love with the green gingham as i thought i may be. but i'll definitely try to inspire myself to wear it! the belts and shoes were impulse purchases at the goodwill--that's all i can even say about that. how can anyone resist a 99 cent belt--or in my case, three? i know, i know.
how did you do with your spending this month?
notes: items with an * are not pictured above. if the item is available for purchase online, the link will bring you to the retailer's website. "gw" stands for "goodwill" - meaning the item was thrifted. "new-gw" stands for new target stock i find at the goodwill.
