I must admit, the end of the month has become a favourite time for me!  I love reviewing my thrifting for the month, even though it always seems to turn out that I’m over budget!  One of these months I’ll be under!  In case you’re curious, here’s how I’ve spent my mindful money in August, September and October.  And here’s how I spent my $50… er, $49.10 this month:

Purple polka dot tee $2.45

To recap…

  • Navy JCrew shell $3
  • Black Nicole Miller turtleneck $2
  • Bird print dress $5
  • Hispanitas $15
  • Blue stripe Indigo scarf $3.50
  • TOTAL: $50.55 (oops I did it again but I *needed* every one of these pieces!!!)

Balance for December: $48.55

If it makes me you feel better, that works out to an average of $5.62/piece which is pretty darn good considering regular retail value for all of these excellent-quality pieces would be hundreds of dollars!
