I set myself a monthly thrifting budget of $50 and every month has been a challenge to stick within the budget!  Is it my fault I find so many amazing things?!!!!  Sigh.  I went a little over budget in September 🙂 so my balance going into October was $49.40.  Then I cheated started October’s thrifting early by snagging some burgundy/wine/Merlot/oxblood/whatever-you-want-to-call-them suede booties that I adore!

    Well I did a major purge about a month ago and then I just edit on an ongoing basis. If it doesn’t spark joy, it goes!
