Monthly Budget Buys

This was a bumper month. Thanks to the early sales I blew my June, July and August budget in one month.
I had set my monthly budget at £88.00.
I spent £309.85 in June. That is more than three months worth.
Despite the spending spree I am pleasantly surprised with some investment buys inlcuding the leather bag, Banana Republic skirts, Gap jacket , ballet shoes and chambray shirt.
I am sure I will get my money's worth with the cost per wear calcuation.
To stop the rot I will participate in 31 for 31 in July.
And I will have an ebay clearout when I finish work for the summer.
Apart from allowing myself a £10.00 charity shop spend I will not be parting with  another penny on clothes until September.

  1. What a great idea to do this, like a monthly confessional! I remember when I first started the blog, I used to list what I had bought down the sidebar but that only lasted a year but I like this idea very much and its a great way for readers to catch up with things you bought at the beginning of the month, that they liked but maybe forgot about.
