Since our fall & winter have been so mild I just never got terribly concerned with getting a whole lot bought for me or finishing out my $40 Fall/Winter Clothes Challenge. I picked up a handful of things early then needed to cut spending some more so clothes became more of a want than a need. We’ve had such a mild winter that I’ve mixed in so much of my warmer weather stuff that it just hasn’t mattered that I don’t have a full winter wardrobe.
Today I stopped by the thrift store with a garbage bag full of donations and I had a couple of things I was hoping to pick up for Lulu’s birthday party. I hit a couple of spots in the store and found something on my wish list!! Tall, high heel brown boots!! I have tall, high heel black boots and I wear them all the time and I often wish that I had a pair of brown ones just like them. Today I found them!
Beautiful boots with no wear on the bottom. Priced at $9.88. I would have paid $9.88 for them too but they had a white tag and this week white tags are 50% off. So I bought gorgeous nearly new boots for $4.94!
I’m declaring my $40 Fall/Winter Clothing Challenge done! I know the groundhog said 6 more weeks of winter but since it was 75 here yesterday and I debated turning on the air in the house, I’ll take my chances on the whole 6 more weeks of winter thing.
In the end, I’ve spent $25.58 and I bought a skirt, 2 shirts, 3 sweaters & a pair of boots.
