February Clothing Budget Update

February Clothing Budget Update

I had previously made a goal to only spend $100 a month on clothes for our family of 4, or approximately $300 a year per person.

I was tested.  And I failed.  There was a sale I couldn’t pass up.  I’m sure I’ll get better with limiting our clothing budget as time goes on, but as of right now, it’s still pretty hard.  Especially when I’m bored and want to shop online at work in my downtime.

There was a great President’s Day sale on The North Face items, which are super comfy and great quality.  I bought one shirt for Poppa, and one pullover and two hoodies for myself.  BUT – I only spent $70.  Not bad, right?

Poppa Pigg also got some new jeans this month.  He’s lost a lot of inches around his waist, so I forced him to get them because his other ones were making him look like the Saggy Baggy Elephant from our daughter’s favorite Golden Book.  I talked him into three pairs.

And of course we’re suckers for a cute onesie for Wee One.  But it was about the same price as a cup of Starbucks, so should it really even count?

Better is the enemy of great, right?  Baby steps, people.  Baby steps.

So that brings our current Yearly Clothing Tally to:

  Number of Clothing Articles Purchased to Date Amount Spent
Momma Pigg 3 $55
Poppa Pigg 4 $130
Princess Pigg 0 $0
Wee One 1 $5
