November Budget

November Budget
original post | original post

1. Kohl's- Sonoma faux leather jacket: $34.00 (originally $68.00)
2. Kohl's- leopard scarf (can't find it online anywhere): $12 (originally $20)
3. Old Navy- quilted tweed puffa vest: $27.00 (originally $44.94)

Total spent: $73.00
Saved: $59.94

I only bought three things this month. What is wrong with me? I got lucky with a sale at Kohl's early on in the month, and a random sale at the Old Navy website, and other than that, I really didn't do any shopping other than the occasional online window shopping. I didn't do Black Friday because, well... I was too lazy. I didn't really have my eye on anything anyway.

Also, I'm thinking of bumping my $50 budget up to $100 because I always seem to go over $50, but I can stay under $100. I'm afraid if I do that, though, I'll just start busting that budget, too. :( Bad Kim!

The good news is, I was able to knock two more things off my wishlist (the jacket and scarf). Now, all that's left is that elusive neutral cardigan... Why are cardigans so hard for me?!

Fall Wish List
cognac flats
comfy fall shirt
fall dress
cognac boots
fall scarf
second plaid flannel shirt
colored cardigan
neutral cardigan
maroon/fall colored pants
brown leather (or fake leather) jacket
leopard scarf
black skinny jeans

I hope that the sales didn't get you too bad! And as always, linking up with Franish for Budgeting Bloggers!


  1. I think cardigans are hard in general because you want them to be just the right color to go with your tops. They can't be too big or too small otherwise they won't hang right and of course there is the tough decision of v neck or crewneck and length. ;) Great stuff this month though! I'm impressed how many things you've crossed off your wish list the past few months! With your weather I bet the vest and jacket will get lots of use!

  2. This is probably a dumb question, but have you tried Target? That's where I got mine last year, and I think they have it back again!

  3. I love that puffer vest!

    And I second Autumn - I've had a lot of luck at Target for cardigans. I think about 90% of mine are from there. Happy hunting!

  4. Thank you!

    I actually went to Target today and found one, thanks! :)

  5. I try Target occasionally but hadn't found anything until today! I finally scored one! Thanks for the rec! :)

  6. You're totally right. Cardigans have to be really specific! Thank you! They both have gotten a ton of use already. ;)

  7. I realize this was almost a year ago now, but I find it highly entertaining that you budget for clothes and whatnot... I have trouble buying new jeans even when I'm out of ones with holes in them and I think the last top I bought was when I graduated... 2.5 years ago.
