After my "no buy" month in May, I kind of expected that I would go crazy with this month's budget, especially since June is my birthday. Somehow I managed to keep things under control. I guess it's because I've been entirely too busy to have time for the fun and frivolity associated with shopping. I was hesitant about lowering my clothing budget this year, but it seems that I've been doing well with the spending decrease, while still purchasing good quality clothes. Even though, I may not have bought very much this month, I certainly wasn't deprived either. I actually added a ton of pieces to my closet including a few new handbags and twirl worthy dresses, thanks to birthday goodies.
Nautica Cotton Twill Shorts 5"
Original $55 Purchased via TJMaxx $30
The only thing I did buy this moth were these pink Nautica shorts. If I could only make one purchase this month, I'm glad that it was these. I am obsessed with these shorts in every way. I wore them for the first time on our trip to Nantucket and they have become a summer staple for me ever since. I'm definitely considering picking up these exact shorts in another color since they're on sale right now.
Sorry that this budget post isn't a little more exciting to read, but I did share a different kind of budget this month. Revealing how much I spend on a shirt here or a skirt there has seemed like no big deal, but sharing how much it cost us to travel is on a whole different level because that involves quite a few more dollar signs. Regardless, I thought that it was important to share the ins and outs of how we saved money and used freebies to travel. I'm trying to decided whether or not I should make travel budgets a regular thing...June Total: $30
