Budgeting Bloggers: June

June Budget Breakdown

If you’ve ever worried about the future of the Ann Taylor/Loft company, fear not. I will single handedly keep them in business. Here’s my budget confession report for June 2014.

My Budget:

  • +$126 (starting budget $150, minus $24 overspent in May)
  • +$104 (sold old clothes – you can read more about how I do that here)
  • +$143 (blog income)

      = $373

What I Spent:

      = $430 (total retail value: $885)

As you can see, I went $57 over my budget this month. But the thing is… HEY! WHAT’S THAT OVER THERE?!?! I THINK IT’S A DISTRACTION!

Thanks as always for following along! Check out the other budgeting bloggers over at Franish.

  1. LOL! Confession is right. Here are my shopping sins… and they were all worth it. I really like that striped dress. I’m not sure if I’ve seen you wear that yet.

  2. Okay here’s the plan. I’m going to lose about 50 pounds and 4 inches, and you’re going to have to gain a few inches, and then you’re going to let me borrow everything here, deal?

    or I’ll just come steal those sunglasses because I want them bad.

  3. I love this series! You’ve inspired me to create my own clothing budget. I’m wondering – do you include “necessities” (bras, undies, etc.) in your monthly budget? What about makeup/hair products/perfume? This is new territory for me… I usually just close my eyes and swipe my card!

    • Great question! Personally, I do not count those items because I don’t really have a problem with overspending/overbuying those kinds of things. I generally only buy bras and undies when I feel like my old ones need replacing. And with the exception of lipstick, I only buy makeup and hair products when I run out of something and need more.

      But if you’re the kind of person who likes to buy lots of cute panties even when you don’t need them, or who experiments with products a lot, then you might want to include those in your shopping budget. The idea of the budget is just to rein yourself in, so you just have to figure out what areas need the most reining!

      Hope that helps. Good luck!

      • Thanks so much for your prompt response! This definitely helps. I’m still trying to figure out where my budget needs the most reining!
