April Clothing Budget

April Budget

This month was a strange one in terms of shopping for me. Lots of thrifting, but many misses, too. I definitely spent more than $50, but I sold quite a bit on Ebay after doing a closet clean out, so it evened out the actual out of pocket spending. I wasn't able to find too many photos of my items this time since I thrifted so much. So on to the budget!

First up is Goodwill:
  • Bright blue Nike dual fusion running shoes (worn here)
  • Aqua knit Old Navy scarf (ended up having a hole) 
  • Aqua Lands' End dress
  • Red Sonoma popover blouse (worn here)
  • Cream and black Merona sequined shell (the sequins itched me, so sold this on Ebay)
  • Black 3/4 Chico's button up blouse
  • Teal ponte New York and Company skirt
  • Yellow paisley Old Navy blouse (worn here)
  • Navy Merona satchel (loved this, but it didn't hold up well - showed all kinds of wear and scuffed easily)
  • Sonoma tan skirt (didn't end up working for me)
  • Hot pink and orange JCP polka dot button up
  • J Crew denim pencil skirt (worn here)
I thrifted 12 pieces from Goodwill and kept 8. My favorite find was by far the Nikes - they are in perfect shape and so comfy. I also really like the black Chico's top, the paisley Old Navy top, the denim pencil skirt, and the teal ponte skirt as well.

Total spent at Goodwill:  $44.11

  • 2 scarves at Maurices: $6.30
  • Olive Gap skinny pants from Twice: $12.43 (affiliate link)
  • Ashley tee from Elegantees: $18.00 (use code CARLY to get free shipping on any order, plus they are running a sale through May 1)
  • Black and white polka dot jogger pants from Meijer: $5.28
  • Relic bird tote from Kohl's: $4.13
  • Floral Chaps skirt (new with tags) from a garage sale: $0.50
Total spent in April:  $90.75

Total sold on Ebay or to Plato's Closet: $44.78

Out of pocket for April: $45.97

I bought a lot this month. My favorites are the green skinnies, Nike shoes, the Ashley tee, and the Relic tote. I was super excited to find a couple skirts, especially the J. Crew one! I really would like to buy fewer items in May. I am not planning to thrift as much, but we will see. I'd like to get some items off my list such as:
  • Brown sandals
  • Cognac flats or wedges 
  • Black ankle pants 
  • Colored pants
