June Budget

So my husband and I decided to continue/restart our monthly allowances. We had been doing this about 3-4 years ago, then got away from it after we bought our house and all our money started to go into buying furniture! Because we started our budget halfway through June, I got a measly $75. Humphf. All in all though, I am pretty pleased with the things I purchased. I also found that I ended up returning a lot more than I would have if I wasn't adhering to a budget (had to make it stretch!). I also included an order from Forever 21 and a purchase from H&M I made this month before we began the budget. All in all, I think I did a pretty good job (tooting my own horn)! Here is what I purchased:

2. Forever 21 Bejeweled Studs (in mint) $4
3. white enamel link bracelet from Ebay (similar) $12.50
 4. American Eagle gingham button up, thrifted $5 (similar)
5. J Crew blouse, thrifted $4 (similar)
6. H&M White Jeans $10 (similar)
10. Old Navy Blue Tami $8
13. Gap pink 3/4 sleeve sweater $14 (similar)- not pictured
TOTAL (with tax)- $130 
I'm rolling over $9.50 (leftover from my $75) to next month's budget which will be a full $150

  1. Wow, looks like you did a great job! I'm still in love with that blue and orange tee, I've seen a couple other bloggers with it and I just love it! I may need to make my way down to Old Navy since I was so good this month! (I'll be posting my purchases tomorrow.)

    1. Thank you! I'd recommend the orange and blue shirt, it's really comfortable. I can't wait to see what you got!

  2. You got a lot of great stuff, my husband and I each have a budget to spend as we wish too. I'm all about getting as much with it as I can. :) looks like you did great :)

    1. Thank you! I am still learning to tread the line between quality and quantity, it's a process (although a fun process because it means shopping!) :)
