december 2015 budget

I can’t believe it’s 2016! Before I forget all about December and all of its shenanigans, I want to share my monthly budget. December’s money is generally spent on buying gifts for friends and family, donations, and if you’re me, gifts for yourself.

Here’s what I got:

December's budget included clothes and jewelry


  1. Gap open cardigan sweater $10, on sale at Gap
  2. Zella tee $32, Nordstrom
  3. Anthropologie red top $3.39, thrifted
  4. Cabi top $3.39, thrifted
  5. Free people top $3.39, thrifted
  6. Halogen polka dot button down $3.39, thrifted
  7. Lands End packable primloft jacket $17 (not pictured) , ebay
  8. Beija flor Nicole skinny jeans, gift from mom [check them out here]
  9. LOFT bird print top $3 after coupon from Clothes Mentor
  10. Silver seasons necklace earrings set – $0 consignment credit
  11. Designer lookalike 925 silver cable bracelet $30 from my favorite consignment store
  12. Weiss Christmas tree pin, $15 from antique store (not pictured)
  13. Vintage wreathe pin, $2 antique store (not pictured)

Total spent this month: $122.56

Okay, so not the $100 or less I was hoping to spend this month (especially after last month’s debacle) but I guess it could have been worse. I also got 2 early birthday gifts, the Beija Flor jeans from my mom and a new (used) laptop that the Hubs built for me. He’s the sweetest. So now I have a great laptop to blog on!

Well, friends. It’s time to wrap this up, wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and ask YOU to spill the beans…how did you do this month?


As always, linking up with Franish and the budgeting bloggers gang.

    1. Happy new year, friend:) I’m always trying to get rid of things as I buy new things. My old house just doesn’t have the dream walk-in closet to hold all my pretties, so every few months I take stuff to either donate or consign. 🙂

  1. LOL. Actually, I don’t think I bought any clothing in December (shock!)? It was crazy though.

    I did, however, splurge on make-up. So there’s that to contend with.

    Also, after my “no buy” year – I had a bit of a splurge, and since then haven’t been keeping track. 😛

    Good on you for sticking closely to your budget! 😀
