It seems like most of my spending was done in the beginning of the month and right at the end! I mentioned buying some items over Labor Day weekend and really liked all of them except the blue wedges. They were a deal, but they just weren't comfortable so back they went! I also ended up returning the J.Crew shorts I bought last month. They were just too big and Old Navy had some that fit much better for less than half the price. I replaced my denim jacket finally with a slightly more classic cut which I like much better and will last for years. It was right at the price point I wanted so I am glad I waited a while. I also did a little bit of thrifting at Goodwill and thredUP. The yellow top was free because it had a small stain they didn't catch. It came out in the wash so it was a bargain for me! For next month I am wanting a striped vest like J.Crew's from last year and I am still on the hunt for the perfect black heels. But I know I'd really love some extra cash to spend next month!
How about $340 to ASOS??!
What would you get with all that cash?
