Making My Shopping Budget

Blog 1

Trying to decide how much is enough for me to spend on clothes has been the hardest task of my life. Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little. But I just love shopping and trying to limit myself has proved itself to be an incredibly hard task!

I have never been good at budgeting my money. I am very much a “have money will spend” person. So the first thing I did when trying to draw up my shopping budget was look at my finances. I don’t want to overdo it and leave myself with not enough cash to cover that pesky credit card debt. So I compared my debt to income for the month and settled on a number.

Another thing that I considered was need and want. I don’t need a new purse but I sure do want one! Skincare for me fell under the need category. Growing up with horrible oily acne prone skin (and having that bad acne return in my 20’s) having the proper skincare items is super important to me. So I decided that skincare and basic makeup (my favorite tinted moisturizer and eyebrow pencil) would not come out of my spending allowance.

So the magic number that I came up with is $100-$150 a month. I figured that would be enough to keep my wardrobe current or enough to get me that one really great piece that I just can’t live without! So stay tuned (and subscribe!!) to see what I’m buying, my shopping wish list and how I’m styling all of my new pieces!
