Hello Everyone. I'm doing my spending recap a day early. Mainly due to I know I will not be buying anything else for this month. Today and tomorrow will be spent finish putting my Halloween costume together. Plus making food for the Halloween party I'm going to on Saturday. I was doing so good this month. Until yesterday when my husband decide to make a trip out to the big PX. Which we don't go to that one a lot. We go to it maybe every 3 to 6 months.  Since its an hour drive from us. Since we were there and they carry bareMinerals products. I decide to stock up and get some thing I been want to try out. The only way for me to get bareMinerals products here in Germany is if I go to the big Px thats an hour away or if I order it off of Sephora. I do hope one day this brand get bigger over here. That way I can get my hands on it.

I wasn't sure if I should have add my Ipsy Bag in my monthly recap. Due to I haven't gotten it in the mail yet. Once I get it I will do a post on what I got. 
I can tell you guys already that my 100 dollar budget will be blown next month as well. Which you are probably wonder why I'm saying that being that the new month hasn't started yet. Well it due to I'm going on a trip. Where I will be doing some major shopping.

  16. Your spending and savings is impressive! I love posts like these, they encourage me to clean up my spending habits. I just cleaned out my closet yesterday and was like seriously I need to stop shopping!

    Hope you have a happy Halloween!


  17. I am very impressed with your budget!! I would like to start a new one in January and would love to hear how you do it! I love using other ideas and putting them together to make my own budget. Also, have you tried shopping for Bare Minerals on line? Do they ship to Germany? Just a thought! Susan

    1. Thanks Susan. A big thing I do is I use coupons and try to shop sale. I also put myself on shopping brand for clothes and shoe. That way I wear what I have in my closet. Also it helps not looking at clothes in the store when I'm in there. As for a budget to go off of. I have played around with a few of different budget and learn that 100 work for me. I use to not add personal item to my budget recap. This year I started doing that since I don't really buy new clothes and shoe a lot.

      I just look Bare Minerals on line and they do ship to me. It said it would take close to a month to get here. So I might give them a try here soon. For now I'm set on makeup.

  18. Wow..You saved a lot.
    I spent a lot in last two months. I should get inspired from you.
