“What We Bought This Month” is a recurring series showing what three real, hard-working mamanistas spent their money on this month.
HOW IS IT ALREADY NOVEMBER?! Seriously, where did the year go? After September’s spending frenzy, I tried to slow my spending down a tad to get ready for holiday shopping. I did buy a new dress and a pair of shoes for a wedding, but both came from Target and were $50 combined.
Total Amount Spent: $150 (a new record!)
Favorite Item Purchased: Can I get a “yeah, girl!'” for these amazing leather leggings?
I’m slowly turning into my mother. Not only do I already have three Christmas gifts wrapped and ready for my daughter, but I keep finding myself shopping only for her. However, I did splurge a little on myself this month, including purchasing the Rodan + Fields Lash Boost at a party I attended. I’ll keep everyone posted on how it works!
Number of Items Purchased: 7 (3 dresses, 1 blouse, 1 ring, 1 sweater, 1 beauty product)
Total Amount Spent: $250
Favorite Item Purchased: I loved my last Le Tote so much that I kept it for 6 weeks! I finally sent it back, but I couldn’t return a long, cozy French Connection sweater that I will live in until spring arrives. Best part is I had a purchase credit, so it cost me nothing!
This month I really tried to reign in my budget as the holidays are fast approaching. I signed back up for Le Tote to help with budget and, of course, couldn’t resist a new LipSense color and adding a few things from ShopTMM to my wardrobe. All in all, though, a pretty good month for my budget and closet!
Number of Items Purchased: 4 (1 dress, 1 beauty product, 1 pair of earrings, 1 pair of shoes)
Total Amount Spent: $157
Favorite Item Purchased: Strangely the Rebecca Minkoff Evil Eye earrings. They feel a little bit rebellious and they are Rebecca Minkoff for $12. These earrings are surprisingly versatile and fun to wear.
