Back in January I said my goal was to wear the items I purchased or received that month and not spend money on myself. Well, I definitely wore those items but I did end up spending some money on myself in February.
The Old Navy Military jacket was a total impulse purchase. Not sure I’m going to keep it yet, to be honest.
I love my original pair of Express Stella jeans so I’d been stalking Poshmark looking for a pair below retail. When I found this pair and was able to bundle them with a pair of pearl earrings (another hole in my jewelry collection) I was sold. Plus, I had all that credit from sales and from people signing up with my code that they were a steal! Retail, those two items together would be over $100!
The sweater was also an impulse purchase. But $10 AND I had store credit? Sure. Who couldn’t use a navy sweater? Now, if only I could find a black crewneck sweater.
Finally, my ball gown. I didn’t HAVE to buy this. But, really, would you have passed this up? Plus the fact that I hadn’t bought much else in February means I was able to afford it easily.
So, for March I’m going to continue my goal of shopping my closet, selling items I no longer need, and saving my moolah.
