October Budget Blog

This month I am challenging myself further and I hope to do the same every month from now on. My budget this month will be $105. Yes only $5 less but overtime that will be a drastic change, not only on my bank account but on my overall shopping lifestyle. I hope to eventually change my overall way of thinking when it comes to buying things I do not need. 

Budget Spent:xx

Budget Left: xx

Days Left Till the End of the Month: xx

These two purchases were made prior to this month but will be included in this month. 

Ebay- Light Wash Denim Shirt- $9.74 This item was something that has been on my list for a long while. So even though I was at the end of my budget this is something I could not pass up. This was a one time find not from a store or a place that restocks. Most denim shirts are $18-$40. I purchased one from Target before I got this in the mail for $18 and I am returning it tomorrow because I love this one. The brand is Fred David and I have never heard of it before but it is exactly what I was looking for. Its a medium and fits great, a bit oversized but I need a medium or I would not be able to button it in the chest area. 

Kohls- 3 swimsuit bottoms- $7.07 Beyond excellent deal I saw while working today. Our swimwear is  usually never marked down this far. I bought a fourth one but it did not go with any of my current pieces. The rest match with a few other separates I have. I got a majority of my swimwear on clearance. I don't plan on buying anymore for a while. I have 9 tops and 8 bottoms which is plenty. I  can go to the beach/pool pretty much year round so I cannot just have 1-3 bathing suits they will get  worn out and damaged very quickly. The brands and sizes are- So size Medium(coral one), Mudd size Small(gray and teal one), and Mudd size Xsmall (striped one). They all fit, actually the medium fits the smallest. The brand So runs small usually, in Mudd swim bottoms I usually wear XS or S. In So I can wear M or L. So if you try to find these online please keep that in mind. These are all Juniors Swimwear Sizes.

October 1st 2012: Old Navy- Light/Medium Wash Shorts- $8.98
I know they may not be everyone's taste, they are a 4 1/2" inseam and are very comfortable. I have not liked wearing short shorts to school or if I'll be sitting a while because they are very uncomfortable because my thighs are are bigger. These are a size two and are a little loose on the thigh which never happens and perfect at the waste. A zero would of been perfect but these were the smallest on the clearance rack. The style is called the Flirt and it is fitted on the waist and bigger at the thighs for girls like me who have a smaller waist and not so small thighs. It is something I've always had an issue with since about 12-13 years old. I have a good amount of muscle in my thighs from walking and biking a lot so they are bigger and it is hard to make them smaller. The measurements on these are: Waist laying flat: 15" Thigh laying flat: 10 1/2" Rise: 8" They are a little higher than the usual low rise but I prefer these. Few years back I would of not picked this up but with age I noticed changes in my style and how comfortable I am not with showing my thighs. I am only 22 but I feel I always want to look appropriate and be comfortable.

October 8th 2012: Forever yoga leggings- $10.39 they had free shipping no minimum and I have been looking to get another pair of yoga leggings for biking. I ride my bike for exercise when it is cooler out so I got 2 gray pairs and one black pair and I have been looking for another and these are by far the least expensive. I got my other 3 from forever 21 and have had no issues with them. Yet again it is too hot to bike so I haven't gotten much wear out of them just yet.
not my images, this is forever 21's image. This is just here till I get mine in the mail.
