Look What I Got: January Budget

So, this little blog is supposed to be all about my thrifty shopping habits.  However, I realized that I don't actually let you know what I am buying each month.  Also, I figure if I know I am going to have to disclose each month how much I spent on clothes, I will be a little bit more responsible with my debit card.  This month I went a bit buck wild with some after Christmas sales.  February is going to have to be a lean month.
