Like Twice: $10 New Customer Credit + 40% off (PLUS, some of my finds!)

Last year, I discovered Twice and fell in love! Twice sells high-end, lightly-used women’s clothing. I find I almost never have patience for thrift store shopping, so Twice is a nice alternative. It’s like someone has done all the scouring for me and left me with the things I really want – and at crazy good prices.

If you’ve never shopped Twice before, today would be a good day to do that, for two reasons. First, when you sign up for Twice using my invitation link, you’ll receive a $10 new customer credit that can be applied on anything you find at the site! Second, through today only (10/31), you can save 40% when you use coupon code CANDY40. And yes, you CAN use the code with your new customer credit, too!

Still not convinced? I thought I’d put on a little fashion show for you this morning and share some of the cute things I’ve purchased thanks to Twice:

As far as customer service goes, my experience with Twice has been top notch. My clothes always arrive promptly. On one occasion, they sent me a wrong item, but I called and they got it sorted out for me right away. I’ll continue to shop from Twice!

Have you shopped Twice before? If so – I’d love to hear your experiences!

PS the site is running a bit slow for me this morning. A bit of patience may be required. ;)

White Chicken Chili Recipe (Made with $5 Costco Chicken!)

White Chicken Chili Recipe: Made with $5 Costco Chicken!

White Chicken Chili – with $5 Costco Chicken!

I love simple recipes that taste like you spent all day in the kitchen, slaving over the stove, when really you spent more time perusing Pinterest while the stove did all the hard work! White Chicken Chili is definitely one of those recipes that will “wow” your family and friends.

I have a little secret that saves time and adds flavor to almost any recipe that calls for shredded chicken…I grab a rotisserie chicken from Costco! The price ($4.99) and convenience are well worth a trip to the store. Not to mention the texture of the shredded rotisserie chicken is perfect in this chili.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 T vegetable oil (canola or avocado oil can be substituted)
  • 2 – 15 ½ oz cans great northern beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 – 14 ½ oz can chicken broth
  • 2 – 4oz cans diced green chilies
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp white pepper (black can be substituted)
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream

To start, I shred my rotisserie chicken, measure out my spices, broth, dice my onions and open up all my cans. Now the fun can begin…

White Chicken Chili Ingredients

Start by adding oil to a large stockpot or Dutch oven. Add onions and garlic and sauté for about 2 – 3 minutes on medium heat (the onions will become translucent, this is what you want).

Costco: Top Coupon Mailer Deals Oct 30 – Nov 23

Top Costco Coupon Mailer Deals

If you shop at Costco, you should have received your monthly coupon booklet in the mail recently. My pal Melody at This Beautiful Frugal Life does an excellent job about visiting the store each month these come out and determining the pricepoints. The cool thing about the Costco coupons is that they are good for a full month. The other cool thing is that if you forget your coupon booklet? It doesn’t matter. You’ll automatically get the discount at checkout (neat, huh?). These coupon deals are good from October 30 – November 23, so you have several weeks to take advantage.

I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite deals for the month – the deals that I think actually beat what you could get with coupons or shopping at your regular grocery store.
