Remember when I said in my awkwardly titled March budgeting bloggers post that I was going to work on inventorying my closet and not buying new things in April?
Yeah, that failed.
I'm not sure what happened; it might have been letting my guard down and buying that first item. It might have been winning a $50 Target gift card on Jen's blog (Librarian for Life and Style) and deciding to buy a couple of cardigans with it. It might have been going to the mall with my husband one Friday night. Whatever it was, I fell hard.
I spent around $140 this month NOT counting the $50 Target card. Gulp.
|Bicycle button down, Target, $16|
|Anchor print dress, Old Navy, $10|
|Nautical sweater #1, Old Navy, $7|
|Nautical sweater #2, Old Navy, $7|
|Nautical Sweater #3, Old Navy, $7|
|Sleeveless top, Old Navy, $21|
|Shorts, Old Navy, $15|
|Sandals, Skechers Outlet, $35|
Here's what I got with the Target gift card:
|Cocoon cardigan, Target, $22|
|Dot cardigan, Target, $12|
|Navy canvas flats, Target, $16|
Not pictured (since I forgot about buying them. Oops!): Black and white Walmart chevron tank top (seen here)- $10 and green Walmart capris- $3
On the plus side, I did go for a few colorful items. Evidently, I really wanted blue and green and nautical items this month. Hmm, I didn't realize what a theme I had going, down to the Little Mermaid shirt. Maybe my shopping habits are secretly wishing I had a beach vacation planned this summer...
