I declared January was going to be UFMC success.
Blew it on the first day. I have, however, decided that my new approach to spending money is going to be buying better, but less.
My family was in need of new towels. I had some Kohl's cash to spend ($30) and I thought I'd use those funds toward that purchase. Certainly $30 should cover new towles for most of us (six). I fell in love the luxury bath sheets by Vera Wang. $25 for one! Their sale was buy one, get 50% off. Plus I had 25% off purchases, so I ended up payingo ut of pocket $45 for new wonderful towels for the family.
Definitely a frugal fail, but I do feel that I scored high in the better quality department.
Next step up to replace will be my every day dishes. I purchased two sets of white ones from Walmart last year in November. Very disappointing, as they are all scratched up from every day use. I used pfaltzgraff for years without wear and tear and just got tired of the pattern. I'll be switching back to that as I can upgrade.
