You Will Not Buy Anything

Ok so now that I have all 3 of these boys at home they are always wanting to go somewhere.  The library, just for a ride and to my nemesis, THE MALL.  I hate going there,  It depresses me to know that I not allowed to buy anything.  I usually bring cash with me for a just in case problem and it starts burning a hole in my thigh as soon as I enter the glass doors.  My boys are in love with Foot Locker, Brookstone and The Apple Store, where they can easily spend 2 hours playing on iPads.  Thank goodness the employees don't shue them away.  I usually try to bring a book or magazine(I miss bookstores in the mall) and grab a cup of coffee from Starbucks and read.  I am usually done in 45 minutes or less and start walking around.  I go in, I go out, trying to avoid those stores near a dear to me heart.  Macy's, The Limited, both Ann Taylor's and now I am being tormented by Sephora and Ulta.  Oh the humanity of it all.  Eventually I will be able to buy something new but in the meantime I shall walk around face pressed against windows sighing.

Oh yeah back in June I scored a brand new sundress and a yellow J. Crew from the thrift store for $3.00.  #WINNING

Oh yeah I have also been doing well sticking to my $100 or less grocery shopping.  It has been a task but I have been doing okay as long as I plan everything out.  Hope I can maintain during the school year.

  2. Loving the Dress, well done for sticking to your budget, treat in order i'd say!

  3. The dress is very nice and bright and I love what it says on the bag... and yeah I really have to stay on a budget this year as well but it seems hard because there are so many nice things to buy ..I always go by the motto is it a want or is it a need lol that saves me money...stay blessed :-)

  4. Now that is a steal! That dress is FIRE girl and you're looking all 26ish in it :) What's up with the comment section Life Requires More Chocolate? I can't find the comment section.

  5. I don't have kids but I completely relate to your trying to spend less. I recently had to drop down to part time due to Nursing School. Which sucks but i'm turning into a budget queen. Check out my blog when you get time. I just did a super buy at Arden B 21.00 for an outfit and shoes.
