This fun list will begin your year with frugality, fun, & efficiency!

 

1–Dollar Shave Club

I like Dollar Shave Club because:

1) Blades are delivered to me each month (or I can skip if I don’t need) so I can be efficient.

2) The delivery is less expensive than my coupon efforts can bring.

3) I enjoy the clever newsletter that comes along.

4) Guys & girls can both use these.

5) First month trial is only $1! My regular membership is only $6 for a shipment.

6) Random & free samples come along pretty often so I tuck those away for traveling.

7) They do have a nice line of other toiletry items that you can frugally add onto your shipment if you would like.

2–Hair Tie Angel

I wear a hair tie on my wrist 24/7. Now I can make it seem much prettier! Especially for work & special occasions.

3–Foldable Flats

Places I have used my foldable flats: airplanes, sleepovers, work, parties, when visiting other homes in the cold winter time………So many cases. I’m going to buy a gold pair for the wedding I am in this Spring.

4–Nano Charger XT

As a blogger I am often reporting live on the beat. I need access to keep my phone juiced up at events. This little cord attaches right on my keys so I can always be ready.

5–Purse Hook

I cannot tell you how often I have used mine over the years! Keeps my purse safely by my side & off of the dirty floor. This cute blingy one on Amazon is very frugal + comes in several of your favorite colors.

6–Loop Key Fobs

I depend on my loop fob everyday, but especially when I am coupon shopping. I don’t want to lose my keys! I like looping them around a strap of my purse or my coupon purse when I need.

7–Ipsy

For just $10 per month, a little pouch just like this January one arrives to my doorstep filled with 4-5 beauty treats. It’s like Christmas! I use the pouches as mini clutch purses, to corral all of my stuff in my purse, & so many things!

8–Squix

As a banker in the cold Michigan winter weather & illness season, I must always be aware of my immunity. Squix allows you to customize your monthly subscription box with the germ-fighting products you need the most. & right now, you can get a trial box for only the cost of $2.95 shipping!

9–Verefina Cream Deodorant

This natural deodorant is, hands down, the best I have ever used. & I have tried A LOT. My favorite scent is the original.

10–Lavender Essential Oil

I use this for sleeping. I use this for when I am anxious. I use this when I have a migraine. I use this when I am sad. I use this when I am happy. My go-to oil.

11–Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist

I own a million. I wear whichever one strikes my fancy every day. But if I had to pick 1 scent that would be my “signature” scent, it would be Moonlight Path, hands down.

12–Cutie Fashion Watch

I love the basic black to match everything. Now I can try to be more punctual.

13–Leggings

OK I think leggings are a given in today’s fashion, but since I wear a uniform for work 5 days a week, I especially depend on trusty leggings. I wear them under my work pants during cold winter days. I wear them as soon as I get home from work.

These particular leggings I picked for a few main reasons:

1) Very highly rated on Amazon as being very similar to the beloved LuLaRoe buttered texture.

2) Much more frugal price tag than the LLR leggings.

3) Solids & cutie prints available.

14–Pretty Journals

I have found over the years that if my journal is boring, my words are boring.

15–Pretty Gel Pens

For the same reason as #14. Pretty words.

16–RTIC Tumblers

RTICs keep drinks hot or cold for HOURS. Yeti cups are much more expensive than these frugal cups.

17–Poo-Pourri

Have you seen the commercials for this? They might be cheesy but this really does work. I keep a bottle in my purse, & it is really that easy to use. Just spray the water before & your bathroom will not smell.

I recently acquired a bottle of Poo-Pourri (I say “acquired” because I got it in an Xmas game of White Elephant, lol) and it’s nice. That hair tie bracelet is a great idea too.
