New Year's Resolution

Last year I didn't think of anything, I completely forgot to write a resolution.  I guess I can blame my prego brain for that slip up.  No matter, over the last year a lot has changed in my life and my lifestyle is very different now.  I'm not complaining, I'm just stating that it's different, very different.  With that being said I do need to try and change a few things to adapt to my new lifestyle.  The first thing I need to work on is my clothing and shoe intake.

I know what you're thinking, "Ashley, you talk as if you're addicted to clothes and shoes."  To tell you the truth I am, I love clothes and shoes.  I think my biggest weakness is clothes and shoes (I know you're in shock) and I really need to rein in my spending habits.  For my New Year's Resolution I'm going to challenge myself to not spend more than $800 during the year on clothes and shoes.

At this point in my life I have collected quite a wardrobe and I think I have everything I need.  I asked Kendi how she affords all her clothes an she told me she has a budget of $150 a month, which seems like a small amount each month...but it all adds up very fast!   With help from Kileen, I added a budget tracker (below the "about me" section) so I can share my success (fingers crossed) with you all.

Last budget update (N/A):

Spent: $0.00

Remaining: $800.00
