I've gone and purchased even more clothing. Yesterday I picked up some much needed lounge/ active wear pants for myself. I also bought another sweatshirt for little Abe that he will most likely fit into next winter. I feel like I've spent a ton of money on clothes this month but I'm liking where the numbers are at.
In total I've purchased:
two pair of pants for me
A winter coat, two sweatshirts (one is more of a jacket), and three long sleeve shirts that will fit little Abe next year.
I bought him a pair of shoes that apparently run very small because they fit him now (he thinks they're super cool and loves a new pair of shoes).
And his dad bought a pair of lined camo pants and three long sleeve Star Wars shirts that all fit him now.
Total retail value of clothing bought this month $241.65
Total out of pocket spent: $56.29
Total saved: $185.36
That's a 77% savings on all of the clothing/ shoes purchased this month. I'm pretty darn happy with that and I've gotten a good jump on little Abe's wardrobe for next winter.
Average daily spending for 2016: $20.79
