August Shopping

If you were excited to know about the socks I bought in July, you'll probably need to sit down for the epic shopping I did in August.  TWO UNDERTANKS!

That's right, folks.  I bought not one, but TWO tank tops at the Gap outlet.  It's out of control over here.  But I wear camisoles under pretty much everything, so I think these are a good investment.

Gray tank: $5
White tank: $5

I mean, babies are expensive, but he's doing his best to save the family money by crying whenever we go shopping.  Unless I'm with my nieces at a store I am not interested in, like Claire's or Justice.  Or at the fancy mall where all the stores are too expensive.  Then he falls asleep.

Full disclosure:  when my sister was visiting, her girls LOVE to shop, and really wanted to go to the outlet mall (which is an outdoor mall).  When we got there, it was raining and kind of chilly.  Assuming it would be hot since it was AUGUST, I was wearing shorts and a tank top.  So I bought this cardigan at Gap, so I wouldn't be too cold.  It was $20, which is more than I would ever spend on a Gap cardigan.  When we got back outside, it was sunny and warming up, so I returned the cardigan on our way back to the car.  Because I am ridiculous.  It's also entirely possible that I bought this shirt and this hoodie for the boy.  But I don't blog about his clothing budget!

In September, I really need to buy some jeans.  And I feel completely clueless about what style I should buy.  I've been mostly wearing skinnies for the past few years (haven't we all), but it seems like flares are coming back, and I do like those, too.  Maybe I need to buy 2 pairs of jeans.

As always, linking up with Franish for Budgeting Bloggers


  1. way to go to only spend 10 dollars this month

  2. Whoah there big spender, slow down, things are getting out of control! Haha but I can totally understand how the little man is a bit of a deterrent!

  3. Wow! I am impressed! I started shopping online a TON more when I had my daughter. That's what solved the problem of going to stores and my daughter fussing. I am all about cheap tanks whenever I can find them. They are great for a little extra layer.

  4. You are out of control. Seriously. You need to stop with all this shopping. Socks? Camis? What's next? Underwear?! Ridiculous. jk. Good job keeping things under control. I've also wondered about jeans. I don't think I'll go the super flare route but I may buy a pair of bootcut or slightly flared jeans. We'll see.

  5. LOL, love the sass. Best of luck with the jeans next month.

  6. You made me laugh so hard as I was reading this post. Of course, while I was reading, my small child was farting up a ferocious storm. How does something so little produce such MANLY farts? And she's a she. Anyway, I am totally feeling you on the jeans front. I am going to wait until I think my body's done making the changes it needs to make.

  7. Hahaha, you really are out of control lately, Andi ;) Those tanks look great though - I love the lace trim. I typically wear a tank or camisole under everything, but I feel like I should get some with a little bit of lace on them for some added interest, haha.
