Pantry Buster Challenge - Day 4 Update

Okay, so we are 4 days into our challenge and my only daughter has turned SEVEN years old today!

I don't think I look old enough to have a 7 year old. My husband tells me so. :)

Day 1
breakfast - cereal and milk
dinner - Chicken fajitas

Day 2
Breakfast - scrambled eggs and bagels
Dinner - Huevos Rancheros

Day 3
Breakfast - cream of wheat
dinner - leftovers

Day 4
Breakfast - pancakes!
Dinner - spaghetti with salad (requested by birthday girl), and birthday cake

Lunches are always leftovers or a sandwich of some kind(PB&J, cheese, etc.) with fruit and crackers.

Items purchased:
1 can green chilies $0.79
1 bag skittles (for cake) $1.98
12 boxes Zatarains rice mix and 4 bottles Danimals smoothies $7
Total so far: $9.77

I also got a big bag of pears for free at church today from a lady with pear trees. She brought 2 BUCKETS and a bunch of grocery sacks for people to take home. YAY for free fruit!

Also of note: I am on WIC right now so milk, cheese, juice, eggs, and some cereals I get for free - that helps a LOT.  If I didn't have this then I would be spending more for the milk and eggs, and just wouldn't purchase the rest this month.

How are YOU doing??

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.

Then I decided to pair with a skirt and …
