I'm pleased that this month's purchases are both work-appropriate and cool. Working in a non-air-conditioned school has a huge impact on how I dress, and these items will be put to good use for the remainder of the school year.
I thought I spent a lot this month, based on how many items I added to my closet. However, after reviewing my January and February posts, I realized that I ended this month with the most money left over. (Yay for stretching my hard-earned dollars by thrifting!)
Aya asked a great question last month about how I budget the purchase of essentials, such as undergarments, socks, and exercise gear. I don't have a set monthly budget for such items, but am OK with spending $100 or so throughout a year. This month I replaced some items from this category with a $40.25 purchase at Nordstrom Rack.
