Smart shopping to buy Frye boots

Long time no see!

Well, I've been eyeing some boots for a year and a half. They are designer, name brand, expensive boots. It's snowy and wet and wintery where I live for at least 4 solid months (sometimes 6) out of the year. I think this deserves a quality pair of real leather boots that will last me at least 10 years. Let's not talk about the price right now.

In an effort to afford my boots, I am doing a month long "eat out of the pantry" challenge starting tomorrow, February 13th - March 13th. If I can cut my grocery budget by $75/mo, I can afford my boots if they are on sale and I can find a coupon code. :)

I will be allowed to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products (milk, butter, etc).

Breakfasts will be oatmeal, cereal, toast, eggs, etc.
Lunches are usually sandwiches, leftovers, quesadillas, macaroni, and ramen.

Dinner ideas for the next month:

February
13 - Marinated Pork loin, mashed potatoes, peas
14 - Leftovers or Sandwiches
15 - Tacos
16 - hot dogs with fries
17 - Chicken with leeks and pasta

19 - BBQ tacos with leftover meat
20 - crockpot mexican chicken
21 - leftovers
22 - Chicken cacciatore
23 - lasagna
24 - chili topped baked potatoes
25 - leftovers (husband out of town for 2 weeks)
26 - chicken nuggets, veggies, fries
27 - ramen
28 - chicken curry

March
1 - grilled cheese sandwiches, fruit
2 - hot dogs
3 - taco salad
4 - leftovers
5 - breakfast for dinner
6 - Chili
7 - Leftovers
8 - Chicken and rice soup
9 - Chicken Chickpea salad - pinterest

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
