Thats weird, I spent some of my saved money on a seppuku tattoo this weekend. And for the re-soling, I believe that is something that would fall under the $100 emergency fund if they are a necessary part of your rotation. Edit: I did not spend any money on clothing, though. I also fixed a loose shirt button. A good start to the month, and then I spend all the saved money on a bike at the end of it.
