So, here is the deal... You can go online to Amazon and make what they call a pantry box, for $5.99 they will ship up to so many pounds to your front door. I loaded mine with laundry soap, vitamins (more on that later), grains that I usually have to hit a fancy health food store to find, and drinks that usually take up my whole cart. Click and done!
Pros: I don't end up having to go to three separate stores for the exact products I like, so I save on gas. With the price of gas, that makes up for the shipping. I didn't end up buying things that I didn't need (like chocolate cake). I did not have to do the heavy lifting from the store to my home. I saved time not doing a store search. I remained in the comfort of my air-conditioned home.
Cons: Although they do have coupons online, you can probably do better on some of the pricing by coupon clipping at the regular store. You need to be diligent and search through the items to see what is on sale. I found some things cheaper and some more expensive. They did not have generic brands. I did not get a chocolate cake that should have slipped itself into my cart when I wasn't looking.
If you want to know more about the Amazon pantry, you can check out one of their current specials below the contest on our link.
I told you earlier I would tell you about the vitamins. My doctor recommended I take Fish Oil, you know that whole Omega-3 thing? Well, I did my research and found this brand called Dr. Tobias fish oil. This stuff has some of the highest ratings in independent lab tests and I found it on sale on Amazon. Score! Those went right in my pantry box. I put the link below the contest in case you are interested.
