Happy Turkey Day!!

No thanksgiving is complete without a midnight trip to CVS and Walgreens. Am I right? Right?!

CVS had no one in it and lots of stuff on the shelves. I was only working ONE CVS card this time ( first time in 3 years), but for some reason there was a glitch in the computer and there were no limits on some of the items!! I did back to back transactions until they cut me off. (the computer, not the workers - they thought it was hilarious) Here's what i ended up with for $1.25 OOP.


Walgreens continues to be frustrating for me. At 1:26 am (when their ad stated that sales would start at midnight), more than half the items were not working. The lady working the register didn't do any Walgreens gift cards for the amount I was supposed to get OR type in a store coupon so the item would be free from the beginning. (I've had workers/managers do both of those before) She also didn't like any of my coupons, so my OOP was much higher than planned and I was restricted to only 2 freebie items each. This is what I ended up with for $30 OOP. 


I actually paid for the cottonelle and arm and hammer. We were SERIOUSLY low on TP. Seriously. That's a dangerous situation no matter WHO you are.

As my husbands cousins brother's former roommate once said, "Nothing says loving like some butt wipe."

Couponing 101: Part 1

I know the question most people ask first is, "How do I start?!"

I am here to help you out!!

Step 1 - Get coupons.

There are many different sources out there for coupons, and I use most of them.

Newspapers: I do not purchase the Sunday paper. The paper is $3 and I would want at least 2 of them. That is crazy in price, and I am not willing to pay it. In my local area, there are 2 FREE papers that are delivered to my house on Saturdays that carry most of the coupon inserts. They are called The Briefing(section of the Dallas Morning News), and Al Dia (spanish paper). You can call your local paper and see if there are any free Saturday papers that can be delivered.Online: I print a good amount of coupons. I use Coupons.com, Smartsource.com, and redplum.com the most. Target.com also had coupons for in-store deals as well as manufacturer coupons.Inside actual stores: Manufacturers place coupons all over your local grocery store for your pleasure. Peelies, tearpads, blinkies, pamphle…

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.
