I’m so excited to share my finds for April!!
This month I had two major goals: 1) update my athletic wear and 2) plan a spring/summer maternity capsule wardrobe.
For the first goal, I found the perfect athletic tee at Costco that is elastic enough and long enough to use throughout the whole pregnancy! Easy peasy. And cheap! I decided that is all I needed for now (I’d pair them with leggings) and to wait until fall/winter to invest in pants.
As for the second goal, it came together on a Sunday afternoon. I spent about an hour one lazy Sunday afternoon planning out my maternity capsule wardrobe. (This is my first ever capsule! You can read about my process and what I found here.) I had most of the items for the capsule already in my wardrobe, but that left a few items on my shopping list.
That same Sunday afternoon, thanks to dear hubby watching our toddler, I had a couple of hours to do some shopping! I found several items from my list at Burlington Coat Factory so I decided to check them off even if it meant going over my budget a bit. (This belly is growing fast so there’s no sense in waiting to buy the clothes. They are a better investment the longer I can put them to use during this pregnancy.) I was pleased to find I only went over my budget by a couple dollars!
Here’s this month’s budget with an explanation of where the funds came from:
My Budget: $68.82 (regular $40 in April + $28.82 carried over from last month)
What I spent: $71.24 (that bites just $2.42 from next month’s budget)
