My frugal makeover

When I won this contest last week at Super Coupon Girl for a $50/$100 purchase coupon I was stoked! Then I found out I had 2 days to spend it-yikes! Plus, $50 is still a whole lot more than I spend on clothes most months, like 100% more:) But in light of the fact that my last shopping trip was 5 months ago and resulted in some great buys @ Old Navy that no longer fit me (yay!) for about $25. I got the go-ahead from the hubby to do some shopping!

I was able to get some perfectly-fitting jeans (pictured above), 2 cute semi-dressy shirts, two layering undershirts, a fleece, a wintercoat a fleece hat for the hubby and a metal girls' waterbottle (for a gift) for $57 after the coupon. The jeans and coat alone would have been $57 without my coupon! Thanks Super Coupon girl:)

Then-Daniel had some extra time off from work lately so I was able to make an appointment to get my hair done at our local beauty school. For 3 cans of food and $2 for tip I got a nice new haircut and a relaxing time to myself!

Next time I get a decent pic of myself I will post it Jane! Rochelle I went to West Sound Technical Skills Center. The normal price for the cut is $3-not bad!
