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

  2. Kristin says:

    I watched this and immediately found my stash of jolly rancher chews. :) fun to see your personalities!

  3. Lauren says:

    I love the Honest Co shampoo! I actually use it on myself too, as well as my kiddo. One less bottle in the tub!

  4. Brandilyn says:

    (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)

  5. Jessica says:

    Bummed-was hoping to see Greta’s room today!

  6. Haley says:

    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.

  7. amy says:

    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!

  8. Meagan Briggs says:

    Oh and ps, your hair and make-up…spot on girl.

  9. Meagan Briggs says:

    My question, how do these things compare in price when bought on-line verses going to costco/sams?

    • Julia says:

      I think the in-store would probably be a little cheaper (if we had that option!) but every week they have a super sale section that is really really low prices that’s always worth looking at.

looking for inspiration? 

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
