I'm so sorry!!!!

There have been several times throughout my couponing "career" that I have needed to let this part of my life take the backburner. Each time I have a baby. Sometimes I get a little burned out. Sometimes I just need to use what I have!

Well, we have lived in our new state for 7 months now, my 2 oldest children are back in school after a CRAZY summer, and my 8 month old baby just started crawling!!!!

Isn't he the cutest ever?? I love that kid.

Anyways, every time I take a break from the deals and then I rediscover the awesomeness that is working the system, I remembered why I loved it so much! So couponing, I apologize for leaving you for so long! I am back. You are awesome.

After living off of our stockpile for the last 10 months or so, I am down to a lonely few bottles of shampoo and conditioner, and only 2 small packs of toilet paper.

Time to hit the sales!!!

Enter: Walgreens.

This is what I got today. I had ZERO coupons and no RR to start with.
The 12 packs of cottonelle are $5/each, and then there is a $1 walgreens coupon in the store = $4.
If you buy 2 packs, you get a $2 RR. If you buy 3 packs, you get a $3 RR.

AND, these little small travel containers of flushable wipes ALSO work for the RR deal!!!

My store had them for $1.29, but I've heard of some that have them for .99. if you can find the .99 ones and buy 3, then you get $3 in RR back = free!

I got the infusium shampoo and conditioner to "roll" my RR so I could buy more toilet paper.

Let me explain "rolling" for the newbies: At walgreens, you cannot use a Cottonelle RR to buy more Cottonelle and get another RR. They have put limits on them so people aren't greedy. BUT, if I have a RR that I earned from a shampoo, and use THAT on some toilet paper, then I will get a RR back. So rolling means,
buy toilet paper, get $3 in RR
buy shampoo using RR to pay, get $3 in RR from shampoo
buy more toilet paper using RR to pay, get $3 MORE in RR

rinse and repeat.

Infusium this week is $4.99, with $3 in RR. I had no coupons, but if you had some, that would have been an awesome deal!

And then at the end, I used some RR to buy some  much needed milk.

Feels good to be back.

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 …
