Monthly Budget


"My name is Aika and I have a shopping problem."

I've been known to spend more than most. I've been known to shop more than most.
I am well aware of this problem that I have and so I have come up with a solution to try to limit the amount I spend each month/year.

I have created my own personal "ledger" to document my spending habits - this includes clothes/shoes/accessories, gas, food, etc. You can have a separate page for each category, but since I don't have a lot of money to spend, one page covers a whole year.

I've made a "ledger" sheet before, but I would forget to write something down or forgot completely that I had it. But this year, I am going to change that, I've documented everything - and I mean everything - so far. I hope I can keep this going for at least the rest of the year.

Feel free to use the ledger. I was going to upload the one I had on excel so you can change it, but I couldn't figure out how to do that. So I hope you guys can work with this in the meantime or create your own.

ORP - Original Retail Price
R/S? - Return/Sold (if you sold it)

Let me know if this helped or if you want me to make you a customized ledger sheet.
How do you budget your money? Do you find that you've saved more after you see how much you've spent each month? Let me know in the comments below!

Thank you! xx

I Sold You So

Hello all,

Before I left for the Philippines (more on that later), I did a closet purge. I donated a bunch to people in the Philippines and also to Goodwill/Salvation Army. The clothes that remain, which is a closet-full, I decided to sell.

I'm using Instagram as my platform to start with; you can find me @isoldyouso.

I'm also using Storenvy, under the same name "I Sold You So". This way I can empty my closet at double the speed.

Please feel free to check out my shops, I'd love for you to buy! Or if you have your own shop - Instagram or not - I'd love to check it out!

Thank you! xx
