Update on the now-passed No Buy November

So I totally forgot to update you all on how I fared during No-Buy November!

I will admit to two things: I shopped on cyber monday (11/29) because there were such great deals and it was nearly the end of the month, right? I nabbed these with a pretty great discount, and they are as cute in person, if not cuter. I'm still waiting on my packages to come in from across the pond (Evans and Simply Be, I'm looking at you), so I can show you all what I ordered (well, some of what I ordered. Some of it is unbloggable unmentionables... that I just mentioned).

Also, a few of the target clearance items you saw last week were, erm, actually purchased in November also. I actually made my husband buy them so I would technically keep my 'No buy' going... until I realized that I was only lying to myself. We have a shared bank account. It's like I bought them.

So I'm coming clean.

Here are the offenders:

Lace cardigan:


Grey heels and pink t-shirt:


There, now I feel better.

Naughty Rebecca - but at least you owned up..! I technically started no spend November on 23 Oct when I got paid so I ended it on 23 Nov ... and I bought a few Beth Ditto bits that were in the sale! So I guess it's Bad Monkey too!

I loved how you roped your husband in and worked the system on the challenge.

In the words of an old shopaholic boss of mine (who i adored)
"i feel it's my american duty to stimulate the economy." She was so naughty and wise ; )

Rebecca said...

Monkey - I'm eager to see what you got!

Curvy - yep, I was only lying to myself, but I *was* stimulating the economy :)

It is impossible to give up the lace cardigan! You are right to break the rule! You can't give it up!

Rebecca said...

Beej & Merry - I'm glad you understand :).

How could you resist? Love the lace cardigan esp the color of it. Hey I'm doing another giveaway, maybe you can win instead of buy LOL:)ps:I was bummed on cyber Monday because I found great deals then went to pay and more than one site said "sorry not taking paypal at this time" sites that always take paypal....that made me so mad!
