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!


  1. $0?! you're putting me to shame.

  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....

    1. Oh there's plenty I'm eying, bwahaha. But... I have so much I don't wear its kinda gross.

  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!

  4. I want to see your spreadsheet!
