Winter Budget: March.

I can't tell you how much I don't want to write this entry. I've been dreading it because I am TERRIBLE at this. Budgets maybe don't work for me especially when they overlap into a new season...and Banana Republic has a really, really good sale. Dammit. I definitely went over budget this time but I still think it's valuable to tally it all up and take a look at what I spent money on.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm - $28. I reviewed it here.

Fairy Drops mascara - $20. I reviewed it here.

Kiehls Coriander Bath & Shower Liquid Body Cleanser‎ - $25. My review: I love this stuff a lot.

From Banana Republic:

Draped Sleeveless Blouse. Is good stuff, very work-to-evening.

Sleeveless green top. Sad Face Kitten is filling in because I can't find a photo of it anywhere! It's completely vanished from the internets but I'll eventually wear it in an outfit.

Coated Denim Jacket. I reviewed it here.

Personal Edge Pyramid Necklace. I reviewed it here.

Banana shopping total: $155 (Everything was 30%-40% off, because that's how to do it.)

Total for March: $228.

Heyyy, not too bad, actually. It felt like I got a lot of stuff, but I'm only $28 over. I am actually okay with that, especially since I did NOT buy the MBMJ bag that I really wanted even with a 30% off code. I'm an excellent, v.g. perfect saint-style person. (Thank you, Bridget Jones.)


  1. Sooooo within reason even though a bit over budget. Blame it on the Clinique, and of course one can argue that it is an essential life-care purchase. Practically medicinal...

  2. 14% over is still upstanding/reasonable. I think your budget is working for you! Call it your margin of irresistible temptation.

  3. Bravo! As much as you don't like writing these posts, I, for one, love reading them.
