This year, I’m trying to stick to $0, or as close as possible, for the entire year! Last year, I spent $400 and that was so not cool.
All links should open in a new tab -if they don’t, let me know in the comments!
Barbie presents Thumbelina DVD $1 (it was at a garage sale, okay.)
Total for January: $1
Erika and Anneliese 2004 Feature Dolls $20 (this is justifiable because I’ve been looking for these for years, and it was too good a deal to pass up)
Total for February: $20
March (SOMEONE STOP ME)
2-Outfit Boho Fashion Pack $9 (I am not going very well, am I?)
Total for March: $51
Total for March: $3
Total for May: $13
Total for June: $40
Midyear total: $128
(in comparison to $56 June 2016) Even though I’ve spent heaps more, in comparison to last year, I feel as though my purchases were more worthwhile. Hopefully I can keep my spending down for the rest of the year…
Total for July: $10
Total for September: $19
Total for October: $4
2017 Total: $161
2016 Total: $400
WOW! LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE! Within one year, I was able to reduce my spending by $239! How good is that?? I’ve realised how important it is to track your spending -maybe not ‘everything’ (because who wants to see how much they spend on takeaway in one year?), but if a certain category is worrying you, it’s definitely worth it!
I’ve written a post on saving money as a Barbie collector, which you can read here.
Bring on 2018!
