-$255.00 consignment payout
TOTAL = $109.82 [only $9.82 over my budget]

As usual I did a ton of thrifting (and a little ThredUp-ing) this month. I love what I got and I feel as though I’ll wear all of it (except maybe the vintage Coach bag, I plan on selling it). My favorite item is the Rough & Tumble bag that I’ve been crushing on for years. I finally made enough money from consignments and decided to treat myself. We’ll see how I do in January but it’s my birthday month so I might treat myself a little extra 😉

What about you? How did you do this month? What’s your plan for January?

Linking up with Franish!

    1. Hi Carly! Same here!

      I was going to save the Coach bag for a flea market that my mother-in-law sets up for once a year but that’s not until a while from now. Are you interested in the bag? We can work something out if you are interested. I’ve been selling on ebay for years and have a 100% rating.

  1. You’re seriously the queen of scoring great Coach bags. That bag is gorgeous and I can’t believe it was only $8!

    Also, congrats on staying on budget during December. December is always the roughest month! …or at least for me personally. 🙂
