$50 a month Shopping Budget Challege Update: I totally blew my budget....

You all are probably wondering how my $50 a month spending challenge is going.  Let's just say, it's not going so well.  I completely overspent for February and March, and I'm way over budget for this current month.  Right now, I'm going to suspend the challenge until I can get focused and shake my "I see, I like, I buy" habit. Since I bought way too much (accessories here, thrift store finds there, more clothes for work), I'm just going to show just a few of my purchases.  Check them out.

earrings $3.99 each, Burlington Coat Factory.  I love funky, statement making earrings, and as of late, Burlington Coat Factory seemed to be my destination of choice for cool jewelry.


"Sarah" striped wedge, Payless:  When I bought these they were on sale for $19.99, and then I had a 20% off coupon, so they ended up being $16.99.

Mossimo floral top $22.99, Target

striped skirt $11.99 (on clearance), Old Navy:  I was so happy when this skirt went on clearance.  I love the colors!

dress $12 (on clearance), Dots.  Love the print of this dress. So fun!

cropped Aztec print blazer $14.80, Dots

striped blazer $32.99, Charlotte Russe:  This is very lightweight material, doesn't feel like a blazer at all.  More like a light sweater, but I still love it.  Love the pop of cobalt also.

printed top $8.99 (on clearance, now $9.99 online), Old Navy

nude platforms and foldover wedge booties $8.98 each, Target: I guess I will stash the booties away for next fall/winter.  It's absolutely too hot to wear them now.  Good deal nonetheless.

Mossimo colored denim, Target:  I got these at different times- the yellow pair was $22.99 (regular price), the green pair was on sale for $19.99 at one point, and the coral pair I caught on clearance for $6.88. I had to up two sizes in these jeans ( I wear a 13 in juniors', I had to buy a 17), so they are cut small.  I'm all set on the colored denim trend for this season.


For those of you doing the challenge, did any of you go over budget?

Yes! You totally blew it girl but you got some really cute things. It seems as if your Target has a much better selection of clearance items...jealous. I went looking for that Old Navy skirt yesterday but they didn't have my size so I just got the dress instead!
