October 2015 – PINCHme Box

Sorry if I have been M.I.A. for the past weeks. I have been busy with immigration related stuff and I am now managing my husband’s personal financial blog.

If you are interested in learning how to reach financial independence and receive passive income, please visit his blog dibidend.com. The website is still under construction, but you can still see his portfolio and monthly dividend income progress. Being in the military for 10+ years, he hopes to retire by 40, or if possible earlier.

On another note, today, I received my very first PINCHme sample box! I was a little skeptical at first and thought I wouldn’t receive anything substantial, but I WAS WRONG.

unnamed
Scrotch Brite Extreme Srub, Kellogg Chewy Nut Bar, Charlee Bear Cruch All Natural Grain Free Dog Treat, Fisher Nut Exactly Snack Bites, 100$ Wine Voucher, and a bunch of coupons.

The thing with PINCHme is that you often have to wait a long time to receive the samples… I ordered them in October and received them over 20+ days later. I shouldn’t complain I guess because it’s FREE.

I’m sure my Chihuahua is going to love his dog treat and I could use that Scotch Brite to wash our dirty dishes.

PINCHme requires you to give a review of all the samples/products you ordered. Once I use them I will write an honest review.

Thanks for stopping by! Please check out PINCHme, it’s an awesome website and I did receive all these samples for free.

My husband and I have been trying to find ways to cut down on our grocery bill every month without compromising the taste and quality of our daily meals. I found this amazing blog that offers amazing budget-friendly recipes:

Damn Delicious

So far, I have reproduced 2 of her recipes: The Easy 15-minute Lo Mein (above) and The Sweet & Sour Chicken.

Both require little and simple ingredients. These are typically meals that you can find at Asian restaurants for more than double the price.

Also, coming from someone who could only boil water a few months ago, I can guarantee you will love these quick recipes! Super easy for beginners!
