Rock What You Got

I am starting a revolution in my closet 
{you should totally join!}
I am calling it- Rock What You Got

I recently did the 30/30 Challenge {check mine out here} created by Kendi
The 30/30 is exactly like a crash diet for shopping.
Rock What You Got is a life improvement plan.
I realized after a recent shopping spree
That I can't physically do this anymore. 
MY CLOSET IS JAM PACKED!! 
Seriously. Not. A. Damn. Thing. Can. Fit. Anymore. 
& I don't need a damn thing
I don't even remember that I own half of the things I do. & I am tired of feeling like I waste my money & never wear anything I own

So here is my plan: 
I have set my limit to $150 a month 
{this does not include gifts/gas} 
but includes everything else. 

I will be keeping track of my spending in the side bar.
Any left over money {if there is any} will be rolled over to the next month. 

So say I want this bag:
from Tory Burch {which I totally do- along with a million other things...} 
It is $315-- that means I would have to save for a little over 2 months to afford it on 

Feel free to grab a button & join in. 
Set your own budget & lets actually wear the things we own for a change instead of always wanting "more" "new" things.

Who is with me?

I'm already on a budget, poor student I am, and I'm going to be trying very very hard to stick to it... don't know how successful I will be though! x

Stay strong with the budgeting! It'll really help you assess what you REALLY want and only kinda want.

I can't be as disciplined as you in the budget area but I am starting slow in my own way - come May I will be starting a spending journal as way to hopefully help me save and be a better spender.

Good luck!

Good for you!
I've been digging through my closet finding things I haven't worn in years rather than going shopping.

I definitely agree with you. I've been living out of a suitcase for over a year, but I recently realized that it has turned into 2.5 suitcases. I sent some stuff home with my dad, but felt terrible making him haul 20kg of my crap around! Lots of luck with your budget!
