I have mentioned before that we were trying to work on our budget since hubby is now a full time student and does not work. We are continuing to use Mint to help see where we spend too much and where we have wiggle room. It has helped out tremendously!
I was so proud at the end of May when
my our clothing section remained at $0. This is a huge step for me and helped me prove to myself that I really do have self control when it comes to buying clothing items (which includes shoes, purses, accessories, etc.). It has also forced me to really use the items in my closet and get creative.
Every time I have been tempted to purchase something, I ask myself "do I need this?" And usually the answer is no. So after a few moments of sadness, I move on and forget about what ever the item was. I am not going to say that it is always easy, trust me, I have struggled at times.
So with all that being said, today I made my first online clothing purchase in a loooong time. I bought a pair of Steve Madden sandals from DSW. They were priced at $29.95 and I had a $15 off code, so after tax and shipping my total came to $25.02. Not too bad, huh? Hubby and I both agreed that I deserved a summer purchase :)
