Budgeting Bloggers: April 2015

Somehow, I ended up selling more than I spent in April.  I think it was an unintentional record or something.  It was not a heavy shopping month to me, mainly because I spent so much time away from home either wrapping up Peru or in Arizona for a week.  I bought quite a bit more than this, but I returned almost everything because I wasn't happy with the fit.

  1. Porto Cruz 3/4-Sleeve Crochet Tunic Cover-Up in Navy ($38 retail, paid $20):  This got some great compliments at my resort trip to Arizona!  The navy color is perfect as my suits are red, royal blue, and mixed print, so it goes with them all.  I got free shipping by having it sent to my local JCPenney, and I tried on my goods in-store and returned what I didn't want to keep.  I like that method of shopping, because I save money and even a little time.
  2. Pixley Bixby Dot Print 3/4 Tab Sleeve Blouse via Stitch Fix ($48, FREE with referral credits):  I kept one item from my most recent Fix.  Will review the whole box soon!  I had two $25 credits from people getting their first Stitch Fixes via my referral link, so that made it free for me.
  3. Blue Scarf ($3, not pictured): I bought a soft, blue scarf of unknown brand at Last Chance in Arizona.  I didn't need another scarf, but that's just par for the course.
I also bought sunglasses in Arizona when my cheap pair broke, so I considered that a 1:1 replacement.  I also bought a few white dresses for an upcoming DAR event, but since that's tax-deductible/event-focused I didn't count it here either.  I bought everything at bargain prices for specific occasion use.

  1. I've been looking for a cute coverup that wouldn't cost more than my swimsuit (which seems to be the norm) so I may have to look into this as it's adorable!
