Total $34.50

It was a crazy busy month with me going back to work (even though it's only 3 days a week) so I didn't have much time for shopping. I also don't feel a big desire to shop because there is no point in getting maternity clothing with only a couple months left and I think I have enough fall clothing to get me through the last 6-7 weeks of my pregnancy. My daughter and I have been enjoying crafting together lately so I spent some of my budget on a t-shirt to make on my Cricut machine and some stone beads at Michaels to make beaded bracelet stacks with her. My husband got me a bracelet stack for my birthday and I love wearing it so much I wanted to make a few of my own. Claire had to follow suit. She tells us she's been liking 'beading' lately. That girl cracks me up!

I did put in an order just this week for a few things though. I got a crossbody plum colored Kate Spade bag through the Mecari app (use my referral code BWTCQJ for a $10 off coupon) which I am hoping is in good condition. I've been wanting a nice crossbody bag for fall. It's just so much easier to have your hands free! I also got a few things that have been on my closet wish list with my thredUP credit that was expiring ($10 off referral code here) and a burgundy cardigan through Since I haven't received any of them, I didn't include them for this month. So if I end up liking them and keeping them, I will make sure to include them in October's budget. There isn't much on my wish list for October, but I am keeping my eyes open for a new pair of cognac boots. Mine have seen better days.
What is on your wish list for October?

  1. I like the blue. Have a blessed day.

  2. Love the white vest! Such a versatile piece. I can't wait to see your new bag. The color sounds lovely.

  3. Lovely picks dear! My faves would be that olive green cold shoulder sweater (look so cozy, yet stylish), and that white sleeveless blazer (really elegant and sophisticated piece).

  4. Oooh I bet that new Kate Spade is going to be a winner!

  5. I love Kate Spade bags, can't wait to see the one you've ordered. I think I have a top similar to that cold shouldered green one, but it is in a burgundy color. I can't remember what company I ordered it through though, but it looks almost identical.


  6. I really love the white vest you got - it's great because you can wear it now or after the baby.
    Hope your new bag works out!

  7. You did great this month----I especially love that white vest!!! It'll go with everything!

  8. I always love your budget posts. You do such a great job! I'm always amazed at how little you spend, you are one savvy shopper!

  9. You got lots of nice things this month and I agree with you, shopping definitely slows when you're in the final countdown for pregnancy! And a big yes on the cross body bags - I feel like it's all I wear at the moment as I run around with the boys!

    It's sweet you are making time to craft together - I often get the mum guilt from not having enough one-on-one time with my boys, it's difficult when there's two!

    Hope you are having a wonderful week so far :)
