February Budget Recap
See this post for the budget rules. I had $125 maximum to spend this month, but my goal was to spend $62.50 or less. I had $57.75 leftover from last month, so I actually have $120.25 total to spend this month before going over my goal. I spent $69.58 total after deducting what I sold and returned. 1 Top, 3 pairs of pants came into my wardrobe and 1 cardigan, 1 skirt, and 6 tops left. See the details below!
Spent $74.33 out of $1500 (Goal of $750 or less)
Bought 5 cardigans, 1 skirt, 3 belts, 3 tops, 3 pairs of pants, 1 dress, and 4 pieces of jewelry. Got rid of 6 skirts, 6 pairs of pants, 6 cardigans, 2 blazers, and 14 tops.
What Came In
I returned to work last month, and because I didn't fit into any of my pants from before I had the baby, I had to buy some trousers for work 2 sizes up. I went to Maurices and got 3 pairs of pants and a cute top last month- 15% off with my Maurices Card special/sale (have had it for many years) and a $10 off reward coupon = $113.36 total with taxes. I had until this month to pay the card without interest, and I did pay it this month.
I also purchased a blazer and a top this month, which again will show up in next month's budget as they are both from Maurices.
I am not permitted to accept gifts of money or clothes, except for certain holidays. I still have $50 from Christmas I have not spent.
I sold the above for $63.72,but refunded a girl $11.14 and accidentally shipped an unpaid item for $5.05 (which was in Januarys budget, because I thought I had gotten payment, so -$3.75 from the budget because I didn't get paid). Total of $43.78
