January - week 1

This is week 1 of shopping, and I came in at $29.05.

I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but I have fruit and frozen veggies, and a lot of chicken in the freezer.

Here are the dinners that we have for the first little bit of January.

January 1 - Kidney Bean casserole with cornbread. (this is basically your beans and cornbread meal)
2nd - hot dogs and broccoli
3 - chicken, cauliflower, and cornbread dressing (christmas leftovers from the freezer)
4 - dominican rice and beans
5 - bean lettuce wraps and pears.
6- Chicken pot pie and rolls, salad
7 - Chicken alfredo with bowtie pasta
8 - leftovers
9 - chicken tacos

and that's all I have for now and I do have all the ingredients for the above right now.

I've got to get planning the next 10-ish days or so and make a shopping list. I won't have as much on hand for that trip so I know I'll be right up close to my $50 allotment.

I'm excited to see what I can do!

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 …
