Hello my loves.
It is hella early in the morning but I went to bed earlier than usual so now I'm wide-eyed, looking real simple! Then....I realized that I hadn't done my Wednesday post so I figured what the hell!?
I was browsing through my reading list trying to find some inspiration and I stumbled across this post over at Cheapalicious. She always lists some really FAB deals and here lately she began a
$50/month shopping budget challenge. I immediately had to commend her because trying to stick with spending only $50 in one whole month is like speaking a foreign language to me. The best I can do is make sure that everything I buy is either thrifted, on clearance, or purchased with coupons (on double coupon days of course).
Like this 'fit:
I'm sure it was well under $50 for the total package. Does that count for anything?
I've never been the type of chick to spend lots of money on clothing-or anything else for that matter. Name brands and labels don't impress me. They don't make me feel any type of way. As a matter of fact, if I ever spent $500 on a bag or a pair of shoes I would slap the ish out of myself, immediately return the worthless item to the store and demand a refund. View my post here about my thoughts on labels.
Honestly speaking, $100 on a pair of shoes is a bit obnoxious to me. I.JUST.CAN'T. And guess what, I still know how to be fly with my $7.00 boots on!!

My challenge for today is to actually go through my receipts (because yes, I DO keep all of them) and see how close I come to spending $50/month. Thanks for the motivation NikiCheapskate.
I'm soooooo curious...what's your monthly shopping budget?
