Closet Fashionista's Spending Challenge: January Recap



  Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
I was bad this month and bought the Gilmore Girls complete series, but I have wanted it for so long and found a great deal on eBay...so I just did it. I was still under my budget this month...but I almost went over, haha...hopefully next month I'm WAY under. But the shopping trip I was supposed to take on Sunday is now happening this Sunday...so who knows what will happen :/
  • January 8 Gilmore Girls Complete Series $92
  • January 8 Jeans from Express [returned]
  • January 15 Mulberry for Target Bag, Target Clogs, Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, long sleeve top $15 (most was paid for by returning the dress) 
  • January 29 Tahari Sweater at Marshalls $20 [bought 2 but am selling one...didn't include the one I'm selling since I hope to make the $20 or more back]
  • January 29 Tahari Shoes at DSW $24 [not sure about these yet...]
  • January 30 Chanel Riva Nail Polish + 2 Free Samples $27 [HUGE splurge...haha]
TOTAL: $178
LEFT: $22
