When I shop online with a budget in mind I have a system. I will go to a website, select the sale section and then set my preference to show prices low to high.
For instance if my budget is £20...
I will scroll through all the items that pop up and as soon as that price tag surpasses £10 and I haven't at least 1 staple item in my basket I simply close the window. It's harsh but it's effective.
Because so many of us are budget savvy shoppers the majority of the time it felt the right time to bring you some inspiration.
And so kicked off the idea that quickly became a reality!
The AF Bloggers Budget Challenge
4 Bloggers per month (on rotation, we already have many!) will spend £20 in one online accessible store. There they will put together an outfit.
The store featuring in this month's challenge is....
And so it's without further ado I introduce to you the Class of July 2012

These are the links of all the bloggers who took part this month, the deal is you read mine and then head over to theirs! All fabulously different picks I guarantee there will be somthing for everyone.
So as you can see I, of course, took part in this month's TheAFBloggersBudgetChallenge as it was the first and I was debuting my idea :D
Using the system detailed above here is my Matalan £20 Budget Outfit
I really really like it! And have worn it already aside from these pictures so I'm pretty glad I took part this month!!
Only available in sizes 12, 14 and 16 in the red
These are a little steal! Been wanting something like these for ages!
These are adorable :D
Total Spent: £16.00
plus Delivery: £3.50
Well worth it, as soon as everything arrived and I'd tried it all on I was so pleased with my picks!
I do hope you've enjoyed The AF Bloggers Budget Challenge's debut, I hope there will be many many more and I gently urge you to go and check out my 3 fellow Bloggers taking part this month!
