$50 a month shopping challenge: Week 1 update

Well everyone, I've gotten past the first week of my $50 a month shopping challenge!  23 more days to go!  I spent a total of $37 (see first purchase here) and I have $13 left.  Can I make it through the rest of the month?  Hmmm.  Peep what else I bought last week.

  • Mossimo "Wanda" wedges $7.48 (on clearance at my local store), and People Stylewatch magazine $3.99, Target.  I needed more shoes for work and these are perfect.  Although I said I was going to limit my spending on just clothing, shoes, accessories, and beauty products, I also tend to buy quite a few magazines a month.  Maybe I should include that in my challenge.
  • necklace $1 and belt $7.99, Payless. Yes, you read that right, $1!  It was marked down to $3, but when I got to the register, it rung up for $1. I had a 20% off coupon, so my total price for both the necklace and the belt was $7.62.

Being that I spent over half  my budget in one week, I'm thinking about limiting myself to only $10 per week.  I think that should help me get through the coming months if I decide to continue with the challenge.

For those of you who have joined the challenge, how much have you spent so far?

Good Luck! I'm hoping you succeed at the challenge! I'm not sure I would be able to limit myself to $50 ... mainly because of all the small things I buy (like magazines) that seem to add up so quickly.
