Save Time and Money on Groceries

Save Time and Money on Groceries

Grocery shopping is a hassle, especially with kids.  Either they don’t want to be there, they don’t want to sit in the cart, or they want you to buy things that you don’t want.  Or their carrier takes up so much room in the cart, there’s hardly any room for food.  No shopping trip highlights this more than when you try to shop in bulk.  How can your child pass by a bulk sized box of cookies?!  On the other hand, there are many great benefits to shopping in bulk.  You can get a better price and you can shop less often.  I have found an app that allows you to get the bulk prices you love without ever leaving the house and no membership fee!  Let me tell you about it.

Boxed Wholesale – Boxed is an app for people who like wholesale prices without the hassle of going to a wholesale store.  Through this app you can purchase non-perishable bulk items that will be delivered right to your door.  Shipping is free on your first order as well as on any order over $50.  Believe me, it’s easy to get an order over $50; I have yet to pay shipping. 

 Boxed is great for bulky items like paper towels and toilet paper, as well as cleaning supplies, k-cups for your keurig, cereal, and snack items. I get T his chocolate milk boxes, Annie’s Mac and cheese, and Belvita breakfast biscuits.   There are tons of items to shop for on a regular basis as well as seasonal items.  For example right now they have a bunch of back to school items. The prices are comparable to Costco, but no membership fee. 

This app definitely saves you time: you don’t have to drive to a store, shop, wait on line, checkout, load up your car, and drive home; gas: you don’t have to go anywhere – your order comes to you, money: you are getting wholesale prices, and sanity: you avoid the hassle of going to a wholesale store with your kids! There are no membership fees and the delivery is fast. 

The customer service at Boxed is great. I once had an item inadvertently missing from my order. I emailed customer service who got back to me quickly and allowed me to reorder the item for free. The reps were  very nice and accommodating. I also love the hand written notes in each package thanking me for my order. So personal!!

Another great feature is the Boxed rewards program.  For every dollar you spend on an order, you get 1 boxed rewards point. 500 points = $5.00 off an order.  This allows you to get an even better deal!  Boxed is always coming up with new freebies and discounts to add to your order.  With one order I got a free selfie stick with my order and with another order, I got a free flag.  On my latest order I got a free can of juice and a free roll of toilet paper. This free app is available in the Apple Store as well as on Google Play, so whether you’re Android or Apple, you can get it.  

Bottom line, it’s a free app that allows you to get bulk prices and free shipping on the items you need. There is no reason not to get it!

Have a great Labor Day Weekend!!

I know this is mostly because I’m single and not a parent, but I LOVE grocery shopping! I find it calming and enjoyable…but I know I’m in the minority on that account.

That’s awesome! I had heard of Boxed in passing, but never looked into it. Sounds like a great deal! I go to Costco a lot, but this might be a better option. Especially for those times when I don’t want to take 2 babies to the store! Thanks for sharing this!

That sounds awesome! We have a Costco membership right now, but it’s ending soon, and I’m not sure we’ll renew. This sounds like a much better alternative with no fee.

Thanks for sharing! I just renewed my Sam’s Club membership, but this is definitely something to think about!

I love the idea of proper savings while shopping especially for ever months essentials

Sounds like a great idea. We don’t really buy anything in bulk because our house is pretty small and we don’t have a tonne of storage but my mum buys lots of things in bulk and swears by it!

Wow this looks like a great app and place to use! I avoid grocery shopping with the kids as much as possible. Things like this make the whole process so much easier and especially if they offer great customer service to match. 🙂

Hey Emily! I am not a mom but I am all about not having to go to the grocery store haaha. This seems like a great service. A lot of people companies are realizing the demand for this sort of service.
