Here's what I found...
Jeans: Gap regularly $69.95. I purchased them on sale for $23.00

EEP! Don't worry... I kept shopping...
Cobalt Blazer: Arden B Regularly $78.00, got it on sale for $10!!
Gold Envelope Clutch: JCP. Regularly $29.99 got it on sale for $5
Beige Faux Fur: Charlotte Russe Regularly $29.99, I got it for $14.50 but NOW it's on sale for $9.99!!
Grand Total: $272.58
The new running sneaks ultimately are what put me over. Those are not a regular purchase item and normally I wouldn't even include them into my "shopping budget" but, I was trying to be more responsible!
I will not be buying much in February to account for the $72.58 overage in January.
Do you set a budget for yourself?
Do you typically come in under or over?
