This month, my husband divided my shopping budget into my own personal spending account. It's where my allotted shopping $$$ goes, as well as any freelance money I happen to earn. So while I went over my "set budget", I didn't spend beyond my means because, hey! I was just using the money in my account. No, this doesn't justify it. But it does help explain where that money came from. So much for my original idea of only spending my budget and saving the rest for big purchases.
the haul video is here. So since I'm not counting that with my monthly spending budget - I'm only $200 over. Which is a lot. I went spring freaking shopping crazy this month.
The good news is, I love everything I bought this month. The bad news is, Fran is gonna kick my butt. I'm linking up with her budgeting bloggers this month, even though the word "budget" really didn't even cross my mind.
