I’ve really been missing writing link love posts, so I’ve decided to bring them back.  Sundays seem to be the best day for me to post them, since I do a majority of my blog reading on Saturdays.

*Link Love covers a variety of topics: style, sustainability, adorable kitten pictures. Basically whatever strikes my fancy during the week.  Enjoy!*

*Week 19 of My Great Shopping Plan of 2010, where I attempt to stay on a budget and fill out my wardrobe*

Mustard Born Peony Flats, $22.50 on eBay

I just saw this exact style of flats at Nordstroms a few weeks ago, for $85.  I fell in love with them, but there was no way I could afford that price tag.  I keep a saved search on eBay for Born flats, so when this pair popped up in my inbox, I immediately started watching.  You know I have a thing for mustard shoes :)  I only bid $27, thinking that I would probably be outbid anyway, so I was stunned when I got them for such a low price.  I used to be so skeptical of eBay, but now it’s become my secret weapon for awesome bargains.  I can’t wait until this lovely little package arrives in the mail.

I had $47.50 left in my budget for June after last week, so now there is $25 left.  Things are about to start getting a lot tighter money-wise, now that school’s out, but I have a plan for that.  Hopefully, I will find a part time job.  In the meantime, I’ve planned a lot of things I can do that don’t require any additional spending.  We’ll see how it goes.
