May budget recap

Another month just about down and it's time for this month's fashion budget recap!

Yup. That's right. A big ole zero. Nada. Niente. Nothing. I spent nothing on clothes - or anything remotely fashion related in the month of May. Am I proud of myself? Heck yeah. Has it been hard? No doubt about that. But ... it's making me realize that I have so many items that I have and don't wear and really, I don't need anything else in my wardrobe.

Of course, this sweater is calling my name. And I'd love to get a plain red cardigan and monogram necklace with my new initials. But that's it, really. So with a suggestion from Lori I've started a google spreadsheet with items I'd like to add to my wardrobe, their link, and approximate cost. This way I can see exactly what I need before I buy it and will hopefully prevent me from owning 10 sweaters in a similar style. I mean, I did buy the bag that I wanted, but that came from a generous gift from my parents that doesn't factor into my budget.

If you have a budget, have you stayed within it for this month? Or are there certain items that you've been lusting after?

And linking up with Fran's fashion bloggers!

  2. That's so impressive that you didn't spend anything on clothes! I spent a lot less this month on clothes than I usually do, but it was more because I was crazed with work and moving haha. Now there are plenty of clothes I'm lusting after....

  3. Oh my gosh this is awesome! I have gotten really close to spending nothing a couple of months, but never the full-on, 100% zero. I think it's awesome. Congratulations!
