While you know me as a book blogger, I am also a geeky life blogger. And, being that part of any life is cleaning, I wanted to talk to you today about ePantry.
I was skeptical, at first, about what ePantry had to offer, as I am not one who traditionally thinks about the joys of cleaning and the like. In fact, as much as I love the way I feel and the house feels after a cleaning, getting to that point can be utter madness. Not to mention how many products you have to buy in order to get everything all sorted out. Enter ePantry.
ePantry admits that the basics of their business is due to simplicity, and they echo that throughout the site. You get a few questions to answer when you sign up for an account, and products you may be interested in are shown to you. Because there is no middle-man (like Target, whom I do adore), you save money. You also save a little bit of the rainforest with your order–25 square feet to be exact!
I set up an account through an affiliate link (to save money on my side, and to get an online friend a little extra something, too) and ordered a ton of Method products within minutes. They were delivered within days and I was cleaning. And ePantry was great about emailing me to give me help every step of the way.
Pictured above is the contents of our third box. While we don’t get everything through ePantry, we have established what works for our situation (2 working adults and 2 furry kitties)–I got a few new Mrs. Meyers products and some really great sea sponges that have really made cleaning a breeze. I cannot recommend the multi-surface cleaner enough! We also got a candle sample (blood orange) and a pack of free baby wipes (which I love because I have an inky, crafty life!). The hand santizer was something they emailed me about as a special offer just before the box shipped, and it is just as nice-smelling as the candle.
It is in our daily routine now to wipe down the counters (not just me) and keep spaces around the house clean, and I credit it to ePantry. We’re also saving money because the box comes to us, with all the things we would have bought at the store (but without me finding things we don’t really need), and at a bit of a discount. In fact, I did the math on this last box and I saved about $15 from what I was able to source locally. And, I didn’t even have to leave the house.
Scheduling is super easy, as well. I set the frequency as to when ePantry will deliver, and they send me a couple of messages throughout the month–just asking how I like things, sending me special offers ($3 off that yummy hand sanitizer that cleans, but not at the expense of my Jamberry manicure–we won’t even talk about how our cats hate the smell of normal hand sanitizer) or letting me know about their VIP program. VIP is a program you buy into, for just under $40 a year, but you also receive quarterly free gfts, valued at $20 and super-responsive support. VIP members also never pay for shipping! While we don’t have it now, I might consider it in the future.
If you want to try it out, check out my affiliate link for ePantry. You will get $10 off of your first delivery, and I get $10 off a future delivery.
