What "Living within Your Means" Means to Me

Lately I've been watching a certain skirt.  I get emails from this store so I'm always seeing the sales. I've wanted the skirt sense I first saw it last year. No I'm not showing a picture - its really not necessary for the point I'm about to make.

I've come close so many times.  Had it in the cart, was about to hit check out then stopped myself. Another time, I even put in my card information and was about to hit the submit button.  Then..... I stop, started thinking and close the page.  The skirt is $110. I'll pause so you can think about it lol.

So you can see why I have not made the purchase.  It has been on sale several times but even with the sale I cannot for the life of me force myself to buy that skirt. Have you ever been in that situation, just not being able to commit? Recently it was even on sale like 50% or 60% off.

Still couldn't pull the trigger.

 Am I cheap or what? Don't answer that.

With that in mind I went to the thrift shop yesterday looking for cute summer dresses for my daughter.  While in there I decided to look at the skirts.  No, I didn't find that skirt but what I left with made me so happy I don't really feel deprived about not buying the skirt.

Here's what I got.
My Daughter
Bag - $6.99
Dress (Hello Kitty) - $6.99
Dress - $3.99
3 Leggings - $3.99 each
Top - $3.99
Tutu Skort (Hello Kitty) - $4.99
2 Baby Disney Princess Dolls (Snow White & Cinderella) - .99 each

Me
Black Medi Skirt $5.99
Floral Medi Skirt $5.99
 Kiyonna - $6.99 (Retails for $98.00 on their website)

As it turned out for the price of the one skirt I came home with an awesome thrift shop haul.

I'm not saying I will never buy that skirt but living within my means is not all bad.

Here the cute bag I got.  My daughter used it to carry here new Princess Babies.


Outfit post will be coming soon.

Be Blessed & Smile
