$100 Fun Things Budget | September 2019

20190930-2019-09-30 14.01.01_blog

I blogged “My Year of the $100/Month “Fun Things” Budget” last month and you seemed to like it, so I’m continuing the series on a regular basis. 

These are the items I purchased in September using my $100 Fun Things Budget.  To read the rules of what falls under this budget, please read my previous post that talked about it.  In September I went over $100, but I’m still under $100 on average for the 13 months since I started keeping track. 

September 2019:  $108

  1. Amazon Essentials Women's Studio Terry Capri $18
  2. Danskin Women’s Essentials Bermuda Short $18
  3. Lounge pants $13
  4. Pentel EnerGel RTX Gel Pen 0.7 in 4 colors $11
  5. 2020 Hobonichi A5 Cousin planner cover $26
  6. Hobonichi pencil board $6
  7. CeraVe Skin Renewing Vitamin C Face Serum $16

I wasn’t planning on going over $100, but in the last week of Sept, Target had a big skincare sale in its Cartwheel app and the CereVe Skin Renewing Vitamin C Face Serum was on my skincare wishlist spreadsheet.  The $16 pushed me over $100.

The weather is starting to get a little cooler in the mornings when I take my walks outside.  I decided I wanted to buy some joggers and shorts in sweat material, WITH POCKETS.  The pockets are important because I like to put my keys and phone in my pockets when I walk and listen to podcasts.  Almost all my joggers and exercise shorts don’t have pockets, so I decided to buy some.  And the reason these items fall in my Fun Things Budget is because all clothes fall into this category over the last year, since I have so much clothes that they aren’t really necessities but wants.  I also got the lounge pants because they were an Amazon Lightening Deal and super cute.

I made my annual order of my Hobonichi Cousin A5 Planner.  I usually buy them from the Japanese Hobonichi site and get them shipped from Japan.  But Jetpens carries it now, so I bought it from Jetpens.  I didn’t count the actual planner in my Fun Budget, because I’ve been journaling in the Hobonichi Cousin A5 Planner daily for 4-5 years now, so I consider this a necessity.  However, I also wanted a new cute cover and a pencil board, and those are not necessities but wants.  Since I bought the planner and the cover as a set, I subtracted the cost of the planner and backed into the cost of the plaid cover.  I also bought some Pentel EnerGel pens because they are one of my favorite pens and I didn’t have those colors yet.  I love them because they write super smoothly, the colors are vibrant, and they also dry very fast. 

And that’s what I bought in September with my $100 Fun Things Budget!
