My New Favorite Way How to Save Money on Clothes

This post is sponsored by ThredUp. Thank you so much for supporting Pennies Into Pearls by using my links.

I just placed my first order on ThredUp.com. I bought name brand clothes that I would never be willing to pay the kind of cash those retailers are asking!

But on this order I saved over $700 off retail prices on some amazingly cute clothes! Let me show you my new favorite way how to save money on clothes, shoes, accessories, and jewelry!

 

What is ThredUp?

ThredUp is the largest online thrift store and consignment store featuring tons of high end name brand clothes at incredible low prices!

I really love that you get to shop from the comfort of home and have all your clothes shipped straight to your front door!

My first ever ThredUp haul and I have some pretty serious feelings about it! In this ThredUp review video I am sharing my first reaction to my ThredUp haul try on session. ThredUp sponsored this video and as always, all opinions are 100% genuine and real!

We Bought Our First House!

This post is sponsored by HelloFresh. Thank you so much for supporting Pennies Into Pearls by using my links. xoxo

Whew! We made it! We are all moved in! This picture right here is real life in all its glory! Kennedy and I got super sick four days before moving day and then Oliver got super sick the day we picked up our moving truck. It was a little crazy but we are home at last!

The kids were not feeling the picture situation so hubby and I decided to document the occasion with smiles on our own! haha!

 

Make sure to watch both videos below to see what our moving week looked like PLUS a bonus video this week all about our first week as homeowners! What are your real life memories from moving? Share them in the comments. 

In these two vlogs we share tips on getting packed up and ready to move. Also all the unplanned expenses of moving in and a few surprises that came with our move. Here is a clue… SNOW in San Diego!!!

With all the craziness of being sick on top of the craziness of buying our first home and moving, I am so grateful we planned our order of HelloFresh into our meal planning his month! It takes all the planning, shopping, and prep work out of cooking and just leaves the fun of crating a gourmet meal! 

You can use the code PENNIES30 to get $30 off our first order with HelloFresh!

 

Moving Week!

Our First Seek as Homeowners!

Thanks for coming on this journey with us! Let me know all the things you want to know about buying a house down in the comments! I am working hard at getting all the info together to share with you!
