July Budget

Nike Free Running Shoes – ON SALE Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for $66.90

Merona Wedges – Thrifted Brand New for $4.99

Shorts – $14.99

*Not Pictured: Thrifted Polka Dot Dress, $6.99, Thrifted Green Dress, $5.99, Thrifted Cover Up, $4.99

Total: $104.85

It is that time of the month again, time to confess to how much I spent this month! I’m super excited about my new running shoes (which I have been living in non-stop) and was thrilled to find these wedges at Goodwill, brand new, for $4.99! I also got a few other fun items at Goodwill, but haven’t taken pictures in them yet. That will be coming up soon!

How did you do in July?!

Linking up with Fran and all the other budgeting bloggers!

    Not too shabby this month – I love the thrifted wedges!! And I think running shoes are one thing it’s good to splurge on, you want a good fitting shoe that is safe and comfortable for running and working out!

    I think it’s about time for me to pick up a new pair of running shoes! I’m not sure how many miles you’re supposed to log before switching them out? I need to do some research haha

      Haha I’m not sure either, but I’m going to guess you are probably due with all the running you’ve done! I used to switch them out every 6 months when I was still running ALL the time. You can really put a lot of wear on them quickly. I waited a bit too long… my knees have been in pain the past couple weeks πŸ™

    So cute! I need to get on your level. I spent about the same, on a skirt, a pair of heels, a bag from forever21 and two dresses from sammy dress. Then I bought my new Kate Spade bag with tips. A good month!

    Love those espadrille wedges. You got an amazing deal! I have my eye on a similar pair from J.Crew, but you can’t beat $5! Not too long ago my sister found me a pair of brand new Danskos for school for $10 bucks! Gotta love thrifting!…and it seems everyone picked up new running shoes from Nordies. Having a pair in that pretty pink would sure motivate me to use them!

      Best time to buy! I don’t think I’ll ever get a pair of Nike frees for less than $70 any other time of the year… hmmm maybe πŸ™‚ But seriously such a steal!

    Considering you have running shoes in the mix, that is a great budget. Exercise items should not be in a budget, in my opinion, anyways!!!

      Haha I did do well aside from the running shoes! I had to include them though because even though they were still pricey, they were such a great deal (like $35 off)! Can’t beat that. I just started including work out gear last year because I was spending more money on that than normal clothes and I felt like I needed to keep track of all of my “wants,” which I guess probably doesn’t include new running shoes. New running shoes ARE NECESSARY!

    I thrifted those wedges in teal last summer but wound up not being able to wear them at all – they were too high and a bit too big for me πŸ™ They’re so darn cute!!
