one in, one out: may 2015

or each clothing, shoe, and accessory purchase i make this year, i am donating/selling/recycling a comparable item in an effort to better manage my closet.  check out my "one in, one out" tag for more of these monthly posts!

i don't have too much to report for my budget this month, but for that i'm thankful.  i did some traveling which incurred costs of its own, so i knew i didn't want to go overboard with buying clothes.  i did buy two t-shirts when i was in tulsa - i actually found a hanson band t-shirt that doesn't have their name or faces scrawled across the chest and another oklahoma themed t-shirt that will be a fun reminder of my love for the state.  
i also put in a thredup* order that was covered mostly by credits and a coupon code.  i found a pink sweater similar to the one that was cancelled in my j crew factory order last month, my favorite merona lace blouse  in navy, and a white blouse that i think deserves a place in my closet as i really do not own any white or cream colored blouses.  i think it will work with pants or tucked into skirts and i'm a sucker for ruffly necklines and swiss-dot patterns!

so, that's it!  nothing too exciting to share but this sure was an easy post to compile.  i am still abiding by my one in, one out process of eliminating a similar item for every one that i buy so i did set aside five items to donate this month.  thanks for visiting!
