This is NOT a sponsored post — just me letting you guys in on the best secret in town. BOXED.
I shared with you all a post a few months ago, on our first ever Boxed shipment, in mid-November.
I forgot to share with you all the second shipment we received, but it was a lot of cleaning supplies that I ordered on November 27, and we are still going strong with the stash.
All of these beauties came to a total of $95.18 We earned a $15 credit to put toward the bill, and the jelly was just a freebie (they tend to send out freebie’s in emails if you order) And who likes some free jelly? This girl.
So, glad to say that nearly two months later all of these products are still going strong.
Our 3rd and most recent purchase was made last week, on Tuesday and was at our door step Thursday morning. Really, how can you beat that turn around?! Dan and I are always amazed with this process, it simplifies errands for us and saves us so much money along the way.
With the winter weather finally upon us, and my recent “limits” in this pregnancy, I’m left to get a bit more creative with our shopping. I’m a lady who loves errands, truly. I think I came to a point in my life where I would go to stores, just to go to stores. Because I love the thrill of finding a sale, I love the smell of those stocked shelves and well, it’s a sickness. I adore shopping.
As much of an “experienced” shopper as I claim myself to be – I would always royally screw it all up. Forget items, pick up 20 extra, spend way to much $$ just to have to go back days later. Every mother knows the unbearable trek of shopping with your children, sure you’ll have your good days where you feel like you conquered the world. And then you’ll have those shopping trips where you have at least $30 of extra crap you never needed in the first place.
We knew Boxed was our chance to really clean up my act, follow more of an ordering process with bulk items that lasted much longer and saved me time and money.
Our most recent purchase was a bigger order, to help push us through these next few months. Seeing as our last snack order lasted 2 months, and we still have some left over we knew this would get us through at least week 32-34 of pregnancy, just in time for a pre-baby order.
I wanted more snack items that were healthier for on the go or at home. Of course we always splurge on “less healthy” options, but what can I say – it’s all in balance right? I love that fact that I could toss in our paper towels, toilet paper, and a wicked supply of paper plates and ziploc bags into the mis. These simple items I would always find myself running out of far to quickly and now I confidently know I have plenty to last us.
Most snacks we would purchase would be $3-$5, come with 6 packages or bars and be gone in less than 3 days. Now, we have packages of 24-36, for $10 or $11 dollars that last months. It’s not rocket science –
The grand total for this order was $264.20 This price included the 10% discount I got for being a repeat customer, and of course their free shipping. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve gone to target for toilet paper and paper towels, and left spend $200 and I cannot even recall for what. Now, we have a beyond stocked pantry (2 in fact) and I am set for months.
Our favorite picks from this trip? The fruit crisps, they are SO good and SO great if you have little ones. My nephew loved them, he’s almost one, and in tiny pieces they dissolve in his mouth. The planters peanut packages, who would have thought? And the pistachios, a bit of a splurge, but I think totally worth it when it comes to the fact that my kids run to the cupboard and plop down with the bag for a snack. Mom winning? I think so!
If you plan on jumping on the wagon, I have 5 spots to use my code so you can get $10 credit once you complete your first order
