February was just a month to be finally over. I am nearly on a zero leftover now, as we had so many expenses this month, some of them was planed, others aren’t.
So we have bought our very first TV and my husband wanted a voice bar so bad for his birthday so that was his gift. I think we did send a lot of gifts for friends (dispute the budgeting) as we had 5 birthdays and a farewell party this month. I must not forget that my income was 35% lower than in January. I got sick and we had the opportunity to invest in a half pig, which would cover a lot of meats we actually eat so now it is an expense, but in a long term that was an investment…
Savings: only 34 %, but if I add that saved a bit more in January it convers to 51% of the planned one, so I will try to manage it next month somehow
Needs: Sent 16% more on my needs as it should had been…
This month I have not bought any makeup or skincare as I am hardly trying to use them up. I went to my hairdresser as a treatment this month, which I only do like every 4 months. I had a few birtdays in this month, so did purchased some gifts to my husband and to my parents- but these are counted to the need file. I also had to buy a new makeup counter and paper organizers as we have finally finished our glass wall and the oldies was not fitted in… + I had to clean a lot in the house so decluttered a lot too.
What I have purchased for myself:
Kazar shoe- for a while I was looking for a perfect pump, but all of the high-heels was so uncomfortable, and now I have found the perfect one with a blocked heel: elegant, comfy and easy to walk, made of a 100% leather- of course it is not the cheapest from a Polish brand, Kazar -BARI- shop it here.
Everlane– This sustainable brand, which I am eyeing on… it was coming in a paper packaging:
I wanted to upgrde my basics, these are their Basic Cotton Crew in S size and Oversized Alpaca Crew in Almond – S size.
So that is what I have decluttered in the middle of the month:
Expired Make up: Bobbi Brown Bronzer, Nars Orgasm Blush, The Balm Mary Luminizer, MAC Ruby Woo lipstick, ABH brow pomade were all so great and saved several decluttering, but some of them were over 5 years…
Then I had a looking to my jewellery box and found some never gonna use items which I was gifted to a thrift store.
Used up two parfumes and my Estee Lauder coral sun lippie.
On the wants I have sent 102% more than I would had been…. so failed.
xoxo and see you in March!
