September Shopping

September shopping


This shopping almost all happened over Labor Day weekend.  It may have been retail therapy, but I did get some things from my wishlist, so I wasn't being completely ridiculous.  And everything else was really cheap.  I mean, what was I supposed to do - leave the $3 shoes??  Let's not be crazy, okay!

Here's the damage (not a lot of links available this month - everything is gone):

Payless:
*Cognac Sandals: $4 (originally $20) (worn here)
*Gray booties (similar): $7 (originally $35)
*Nude flats: $20 (originally $30) (worn here)

TJMaxx:
Michael Kors Striped tank: $7 (originally $70)
Jones NY Striped Blazer: $7 (originally $109)
*Nine West Sunglasses: $10 (originally $55)  (worn here)
Restricted Wedges: $3 (originally $65)  (worn here)

Banana Republic:
Anchor tee: $4 (originally $40) (worn here)

Gap:
Star tee: $6 (originally $23)  (worn here)
White Tank: $6 (originally $23)  (worn here)
Striped tank: $5 (originally $25)

Limited:
Polka Dot Skinny Jeans $10 (originally $80)  (worn here)
*Bootcut Jeans $45 (originally $75)  (worn here)
Dalmatian print belt $3.50 (originally $33) 
*Mint necklace $7 (originally $30)  (worn here)

Athleta (used $25 GC that I won from Kim)
*Tankini Top:  $35 (originally $72)
*Swim bottom:  $30 (originally $42)

Spent:$202.50  (originally $827)
Minus GC: -$25
Earned Selling Consignment: $20.48
Total out of pocket: $157.02

Other than my little purchases adding up (which I should be more careful about), I did find a few very important items that made up the bulk of my spending.  Bootcut jeans, nude flats and a swimsuit have been on my "difficult to find/willing to spend more on" list for probably a year.  You might think it is odd to buy a swimsuit at the end of summer, but I big plans to start swimming at the gym.  I just need to learn how to swim - it can't be that hard, right??       

I also had enough leftovers from prior months, so I am still on track for my annual budget, with even a little extra.  October is my birthday month, so I shouldn't be shopping much, in case people buy me presents from my wishlist (hint, hint).  

As always, I'm linking up with Fran for the Shopaholics Anonymous - I mean, Budgeting Bloggers.
