*Week 31 of My Great Shopping Plan of 2010, where I attempt to stay on a budget and fill out my wardrobe*
I had $104 left in my August budget last week. And this week began September’s budget, giving me another $125. It’s weird how your budget builds up when have no money to spend. As you can see from the image above, I went on a nice little thrifting spree this week, which cost me all of $25.
I’m really happy with these tops. They’ll give me a lot of new things to wear for work and play. But quite honestly, my favorite finds are the least glamourous – those two pairs of lounge pants. Before this week, I only owned two pairs of yoga pants and three pairs of pajama pants. While I like all of them, I was beginning to get sick of them, and craved more variety. These two pairs that I thrifted fit fantastically, they’re 100% cotton, and they’re super soft (the green ones are organic cotton, which is doubly awesome). I’ve been wearing them all weekend, except for when I went out in public, of course.
I also somewhat impulsively bought this watch. At an antique shop. Which is weird, because the watch isn’t antique. I’ve been wanting a watch to wear to work, because mine needs a new battery and needs to have the band shortened, and I’ve been too lazy (and broke) to get it done. Not the best reason to buy a new watch, but whatever. It’s good to have some variety.
So I had $229 in my budget, and I spent $37, so now I have $192. There will probably be more thrifting and consignment trips this week, and maybe I’ll actually look at my wardrobe gaps list for real. There will also be *cough, cough* a new pair of used shoes to check out next week. I’ll give you a hint: they start with “flue” and end with “vog” 🙂
