I think I did pretty well this month. Obviously had a taste for skinny belts and Ebay though! I won a giftcard through a blog giveaway and that's how I was able to get so many accessories. It's been fun figuring out how to wear them all. I can't wait until my Ebay things get here so I can wear them, too. I'm excited to be carrying over money to next month again. Even though we have $150 to spend, I would like to have extra in case I'd like to buy something more expensive (purse, boots, etc.). You never know when you will see a great sale either!

    You did great this month, how cool about winning $50 in free jewelry too!

  2. One question, will you take me shopping PLEASE? Wow, I'm amazed at everything you got for such a small amount.

  3. You did great, and congrats on the giveaway win! Boot season is around the corner so you may need that extra!

  4. I rarely win anything so I was really excited!

  5. I'm a Goodwill newbie shopper, but I was excited I got some decent deals this month! I finally found a good Goodwill (because there really are good and not great ones).

  6. I know! I have too many already, but I can't seem to let winter go by without buying another pair (Oops!).

  7. You did do great this month! You got some great items for great prices. I love that striped shirt from TJ Maxx and that pretty yellow necklace!

  8. Thank you! I've found so many outfits to wear that necklace with. It was a good buy!

  9. You got some cute stuff! I really love the watch!

  10. Thanks! I can't wait until it gets here so I can wear it. I love the mint color and it was so cheap, I figured what the heck? :)
