TIP NO. 8 – You need a clothing budget!
Yes, I know I speak a lot about ‘budget’ but it is necessary to have one because it will prevent you from buying here and there, on sale, or when you need a pick-up – having spent your money that way you won’t have enough to get what you really need. We budget other things in our live, food, transport, etc. so why not for clothing.
To get you started add up your credit card receipts and find out how much you have spent in the last six months – was it too much? Or could you have spent a little more? Let’s say you determine that you can spend $ 500 in the next six months. Now think what you need – is it a new coat? Or a good pair of pants? Knowing what you need and how much your budget is won’t let you fall in love with cute top for $45 you don’t need. You will be able to put it back thinking ‘ I better put that money towards my new coat’ and not having spend the money on that little top you can buy a better coat!
See you tomorrow
