Total Spent in August 2017 Budget
Total Remaining in 3rd Quarter Budget
The pieces from the Nordstrom sale keep slowly rolling in (hence the lower than normal prices). Yes, I’m still deciding on things. I still need to make some comparisons and I love that Nordstrom’s return window allows me to do that. Don’t worry though, you’ll keep getting to hear about my hunts and comparisons.
Anyways, back to the budget.
The main cause of me going over this month? The jacket. Will it be well worth it? Yes. Oh yes. I have a feeling that this jacket is going to last me for a while. However, it also means that I really need to work on either spending less or bringing in more. Or even better, doing both. (Wouldn’t that be the dream?)
Also, if you couldn’t tell from my purchases, I’m really craving fall. I’m over this humidity and ready to break out my jeans and booties. My closet is still pretty well stocked from last fall, so I’m just focused on adding a few pieces (a denim skirt and a few cardigans). I’ll also probably need to go through some of the stuff I haven’t brought out in a while. But, since I went through EVERYTHING in my closet last spring, I think I should be fine.
I think that’s it for now. I’m going to try to stay away from Labor Day sales this weekend, but I’ll still make sure that you know about all of the best ones! I’m going to post a few here, but most of them will be posted on my facebook page, so make sure you’re following over there!
