Thrift Challenge February


Thrifting Purchases

Week of February 6, 2015 – Total: $20
Week of February 16, 2015 – Total: $25
Week of February 19, 2015 – Total: $34
Week of February 24, 2015 – Total: $24

February Month End Total: $103 | Goal: $80 | Overbudget: $23

So I may not have made my goal this month which can be attributed to Value Village having a half price sale, but I think considering the amounts I was able to bring in through resale I think an extra $23 isn’t the end of the world. My real challenge will be in March for the storewide half price sale!

By the second month of the Challenge, I feel a little more at ease about the idea of being brutal with my purchases. I am analysing each item very carefully, trying clothing on before making a final decision and waiting for a better deal. It certainly was far less straining this month than last, I didn’t put a ton of pressure on myself to monitor the amounts. However I did technically fail my second month of the challenge so in March I will have to pay close attention and really focus.
