What We Bought in October

Let's Spend Some Money

“What We Bought This Month” is a recurring series showing what three real, hard-working mamanistas spent their money on this month.

Aimee’s Purchases

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.

Number of Items Purchased: 4 (1 “Witch, Please” Halloween shirt, 1 pair of leggings, 1 pair of shoes and 1 dress)

Total Amount Spent: $150 (a new record!)

Favorite Item Purchased: Can I get a “yeah, girl!'” for these amazing leather leggings?

Liz’s Purchases

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!

Sarah’s Purchases

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.
