Weekend Recap + June Budget

I have lots of words and not too many pictures for you today, so just bear with me, k?

Friday: We decided that we've been really good about money lately, so we headed to the Post Exchange to treat ourselves and spend $20 each. E got a new doll, J picked up Arkham City (which so far seems to be a great game), and I picked up two pairs of pants, neither of which were jeans! With my $20 I managed to fill two of the holes in my closet and double the amount of pants I have that are not just regular ole jeans. Woo! Both of them will be on the blog this week, so look out for that.

We also ate pizza (just pepperoni and roasted tomatoes this week). 

Saturday: We ran some errands and got the house ready for some guests on Sunday! I didn't take pictures of anything on Saturday, but really there wasn't much to take pictures of, and we were pretty busy running around.

Sunday morning, E's grandma, aunt and great-aunt (her dad's family) drove down from San Jose to visit with us. E wanted to take them to the playground, so we walked up there and she dragged her aunt all over that playground (poor thing, but at least it wasn't me this time)! Then we had lunch and they drove back north. We spent the rest of the day relaxing and making/eating dinner (recipe tomorrow!).

Since I did so well shopping on Friday, I decided to take stock of what I spent this month, and was surprised by the results:

Maxi skirt (thrifted): $4.95
Cardigan (thrifted) (not on the blog yet): $4.95
Shoes (thrifted) (not on the blog yet): $3.95
Necklace (Target, on clearance): $7.98
Blue pants (on clearance + extra $25 off) (coming this week): $14.25
Cargo pants (on clearance + extra $25 off) (coming this week): $6


Not bad for a girl who doesn't have a formal budget! (I'm not counting the hiking shorts, because we bought those specifically for hiking and I'm just glad I can wear them for everyday wear as well.) I think going forward my goal will be to stay under $50 per month, and to purge my closet again for things to sell.

What about you guys? Did you have a good weekend? How did you do with your budgets?

Oh, and if you aren't already, don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin'! (I'm not having any sort of emotional reaction to Google Reader going away because I've used Bloglovin' from the beginning, and I love it, but I sympathize with those of you who are!)


  1. Looks like a fun weekend :)

  2. Cute pictures, looks like you had a nice weekend! Holy budget, that's amazing! Makes me miss the PX :) (raised an army brat)

    1. I'm so glad someone knows what the PX is haha!

  3. Your pizza creations are so fab. We eat pizza every Friday and it is always the same old boring cheese. Great job on your budget! Mine was out of control. Yikes.
