Meal Plan

One of the best budget saving strategies when it comes to food is having a game plan. I think once a week I will list what we are eating for dinner that week so you see what kind of variety we have. People think that because I only spend about $20/week on food that we eat beans and rice and mac and cheese every day. Keep in mind that when I first started couponing, my budget was $40/week for all grocery, diaper, cleaning products, and stockpiling. Stockpiling is when something is at a rock bottom price, you buy as much as you can so you don't need to buy it for a long time. Anyway, since I have a nice stockpile now, I don't spend as much as I used to.

Here is what we are eating for the rest of this week:
Tuesday - Spaghetti, salad
Wednesday - hot dogs and broccoli(daddy won't be here)
Thursday - Bertolli Frozen Meal
Friday - Fish Parm, green beans, rice
Saturday - Breakfast for Dinner - strawberry french toast casserole
Sunday - Veggie Burgers, Homemade baked fries

What is Stitch Fix? Review #1

Today I got my very first stitch fix and I'm so excited! First of all, what is it?

It's a monthly subscription clothing box. You pay $20 for a stylist to pick out some clothes for you based on height, preference, what you post on your Pinterest board, etc. They send you 5 items to try on at home with things you already own and you can pick whatever ones you want to keep. The $20 works as a credit toward anything you keep. You send back the rest and wait for your next box!

I decided to try this out because I don't really have stores for clothes shopping in my area. Plus, it's fun!

Do you want to try it out? Check it out here.

Okay, here is what I got in my first box:

They always send this cool styling card to show how to wear the clothes.

Don't mind my crazy face. These are the Mavi Freida Skinny Jeans.

Paired with the Pixley Tracy Dot Print Cross Back Knit Top

Added my jacket and the Octavia Jolene Zipper Flap Crossbody Bag.
