Chris and I have been wanting to add some more of us into this blog. And while we have no intention of becoming vloggers, we thought a once-a-month video of us chatting about our favorite things (tools, paint supplies, baby gear maybe?) would be a fun way to inject our personalities right here. Me laughing at all of Chris’s sarcasm just doesn’t come across through writing, ya know!?
So we have our first video talking about a few of our favorite household/pantry items we use every day (kinda awkward. 100% fun.) :
Since moving to Idaho, our closest Costco is over an hour away. Sam’s Club is 35 minutes. We’ve decided to save our time and gas money and just do all of our bulk shopping online. Boxed is changing the wholesale club shopping experience by bringing the warehouse club to your smart phone—but without membership fee. Woot. You saw us ramble on about their variety of all-natural/organic/health brands in the video. Coconut oil for Chris. Annie’s for Greta. The Honest Co for Faye. I ordered some of my favorite Mrs. Meyers cleaner in bulk. And something for Charly, too–Greenies at a steal! (In case you think we’re pretentious organic wannabes, HiChews and the biggest box of Alpine Apple Cider made it into our order as well).
Bottom line: Boxed is a free and easy-to-use app available on iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets offering nonperishable bulk-sized goods at pint-sized prices–delivering your favorite items, in bulk, direct to your door in two days or less. There’s complimentary shipping on all first orders (as well as orders starting at $75). They also have a rewards program where for every $1 you spend on merchandise at Boxed, you receive 1 Boxed Rewards point and during promotions, even MORE points! What, oh what did we do before online shopping?
This post is sponsored by Boxed. Please note, they did not ask us to make a video and “our favorite things” monthly videos will not always be sponsored. Hope you enjoyed!
Julia your makeup is gorgeous!! :) And I never realized just how much Greta looks like you! xoxo
I watched this and immediately found my stash of jolly rancher chews. :) fun to see your personalities!
I love the Honest Co shampoo! I actually use it on myself too, as well as my kiddo. One less bottle in the tub!
HOLY CRAP I DO NOT HAVE A SAM’S MEMBERSHIP AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.
(I feel like you probably think I’m being overly dramatic here but I actually am excited. We’ve been wanting to be better about shopping in bulk and Rexburg is so isolated)
Bummed-was hoping to see Greta’s room today!
love the video! It is always nice to see bloggers in ‘person’ on occasion. Sam’s club is less than two miles from my house so I get in a little trouble there, but this looks like a great option for people that don’t have something quite as convenient.
I wonder if they have Boxed in Canada!
I’m currently doing my second Whole 30 (I did one last fall as well). Something about Fall makes it the perfect time to do a Whole 30! I would love to read more about your Whole 30 experience!
Oh and ps, your hair and make-up…spot on girl.
My question, how do these things compare in price when bought on-line verses going to costco/sams?
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
