Another month is almost in the books. How is it already Memorial Day Weekend? I had a pretty hectic week, a pipe burst at my client site on Tuesday night and so the rest of the week the office has been in various states of chaos while the contractors change out floors, clean carpets, and salvage files. I could not be more excited to go home today and spend the weekend with family and friends. Tomorrow we have a wedding for two of my co-workers at my old firm which I'm excited about and then we plan on relaxing on Sunday before heading to my parent's house on Monday to swim and grill. What're your plans this weekend?
Anyways, with the end of the month comes my monthly budget update post! If you missed it, I wrote in this post about my monthly budget here where I have laid out a quarterly budget of $800.
Here is how the year is panning out so far:
January: $0 (I went a month without shopping, one of my 101 in 1001 goals!)
Total Q1: $909 (overspent in Q1 by $109)
Amount left for Q2: $665.75
See all 2016 additions to my wardrobe here.
Baublebar Kiara Drop Earrings - $36, less coupon code, $28.80 total
Banana Republic Bow Back Off-Shoulder Top - $49.50, less coupon code, $30
Banana Republic Striped Off-Shoulder Top (similar here) - $79, used coupon code $37
Total Spent for May: $266
Total Q2 Spending: $400
Total Left for June: $400
I'm ok with this spending, and June is either going to be a really light month or I'm going to go crazy. I have some summer events and travels coming up so that usually drives up my spending, however I'll be working at home now and will not be saving money on expenses during the week which could force me to be more careful. I'm on the hunt for some new business casual clothes to replace some worn out items in my wardrobe and those tend to be rather pricey. I also have a very special purchase for my wardrobe coming up which may cause me to be frugal elsewhere, stay tuned!
How did you do this month?
Linking up with Fran.
