Week 2 of January

Hmmm, not sure why that first picture is sideways, but this is what I got today.

Total spent was $59.15. If you take out the toothpaste and toothbrush then I'm at $54.55, but I'll just leave it at $59.

I'm trying some new recipes and the pork shoulder alone was $13!!!!! yikes.

THe meals that we are planning on are as follows for the next week-ish are:

Jan 10 - hamburgers
11 - pork roast with veggies
12 - shredded pork w/ slaw sandwiches
13 - zuppa toscana with rolls
14 - hoppin' john (basically a black eyed pea stew served with rice)
15 - leftovers
16 - chicken and rice roger (a casserole my grandpa makes)

And to get us through the 16th of January, I've spent $88.20.

By the way, this is really hard. Ever since we moved and our income has gone up, I've gotten used to being at the store and thinking, "yeah, apples are on sale, we need some apples." or "OH, we for sure need some yogurt because we are out." or "HEY, I would love some twizzlers. gonna throw those into the cart." I'm having to go back to the way I used to be. sticking to the list, nothing extra, added up everything on my calculator so I know exactly where I'm at.

In case you were wondering about breakfast and lunch, here's what we do...

Breakfast - oatmeal, pancakes, eggs and toast, cream of wheat, cereal (although not usually), homemade granola, grits, waffles, things like that.

Lunches - husband and me get leftovers from dinner, and the 2 kids in school get sandwiches with fruit and some kind of snacky thing. banana bread, muffins, etc. the 2 little ones at home get either, depending on what it is.

looking forward to going shopping again without buying a $13 roast!

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 …
