Tomorrow, Saturday, August 31st is the last day of the month and this weekend is when all the sales are happening! I'm pretty doubtful that I'll find anything, but you never know. So if I do buy something, I'll plop it into my September recap.
*After last month's splurge, I think I did pretty well this month. I "spent" less than $5. Earlier this summer my brother's friend gave him two bags of clothes. Since my brother didn't want them and he was just going to donate it -- I sold a good chunk of it and a few pieces of mine to Crossroads. I got back a whooping $46.03. The rest of the stuff that didn't sell, I am going to donate to Goodwill.
I am still trying really hard figure how often and how many different ways I can wear a piece before purchasing. Often enough, I buy cheap things on a whim and end up only wearing it 1-2 times which is a total waste and...not so "cheap" after all if I don't wear it enough!
I also notice I keep buying blue. I try to remind myself to buy some color, but I always tend to gravitate towards blue and don't realize it until I get home!
I'm linking up with Franish and Budgeting Bloggers, be sure to check out how other bloggers did this month!
