Boxed.com Review & Coupon

Living out in a rural area, I do a lot of our family's shopping online. Thankfully we live in a day and age where that's completely possible. Even so, I still want a good deal. I don't want to pay for shipping. And I generally want some sort of coupon code before I'll ever make a purchase. Boxed.com is one of the recent companies I've tried out. They sell large quantities at generally wholesale prices. I've seen some that are more than on other websites but I've also found really good deals on their site.

The first time I ordered from Boxed I was able to score a gift card for their site at 40% off on Gilt.com. Huzzah! So I placed an order with them that afternoon and that night my order had already shipped- I think it showed up 2-3 days later- with free shipping... count me impressed. Unfortunately a giant bag of trail mix that I ordered for my husband had a slit through it and there was trail mix everywhere. But their customer service was awesome and after a couple emails- everything was squared away and I had a credit on their site.

The next time I ordered everything was perfect. Order again arrived in days and not a thing was wrong with it. Their packaging is really bright and happy as well... which I'm obviously a fan of.

Some of my favorite deals off Boxed right now are:

The  Live Better Coconut Water (24 boxes for $13.99!)

Old Fashioned Quaker Oats (10lbs for $9.99)

Ziploc Sandwich Bags:(Sandwich 500 for 9.99)

Ghirardelli Brownie Mix (6 packs for $9.99)

Sriracha (28oz. for $2.39)

Honest Kids Organic Juice Drinks (40 for $14.99)

Annie's Homegrown Organic Mac n Cheese (12 boxes for $13.19)

Saran Cling Plus Plastic Wrap (400 sq ft for $3.49)
They offer Free (and fast!) Shipping on all orders over $50 and the first 5 people to sign up on their site from here can get $10 off their first order by entering the coupon code AM4Q9 at checkout!

The Perfect Summer Breakfast: Overnight Oats

This recipe for an Overnight Oat Sensation is a favorite breakfast of both me and my husband at the moment. It's super easy, healthy, and filling.


1) Add 1/2 cup of milk (I used almond milk but you can use whatever) to 1/2 cup uncooked Old Fashioned Oats

2) Layer on your favorite fruit, nuts, yogurt or other toppings ( I typically do bananas, blueberries, almonds, organic shredded coconut, raisins, Chia seeds, & local honey)

3) Chill overnight

You can do as many variations as you like.  And there's a ton more on the Quaker Oats website here

Thrive Market Review + Coupon

Thrive Market is an online retailer that sells wholesome food and wholesale prices. I tried them when they had a promotion going on and we absolutely love them! Everything comes beautifully packaged and both of our shipments thus far have arrived very quickly. The prices are awesome as well. I also love that they offer free shipping on all orders over $49 (can't remember the last time I spent less than that when grocery shopping) and you also get a free item! What?! We've gotten both Chipotle Lime Mayo (my husband loves it!) and Avocado Oil Mayo (which we are also now fans of!). I see them giving free Coconut Oil a lot as well and Justin's Almond Butter (something I definitely want!)

If you'd like to give Thrive Market a try, you can get 15% off your first order by signing up through this link- and don't forget you'll also get Free Shipping on orders over $49- plus a free item as well! This is a win/ win if I ever saw one.

Some of our favorite products so far: Salted Snappea Crips, Mango Slices, Clif Kid Fruit Ropes, Quinoa Pasta, Creamy Dark Roasted Peanut Butter, & these Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Also, for each person who signs up for a membership, they give a free one to a family in need- love it! Healthy Food. Wholesale Prices. Pretty Packaging. Quick Shipping. And they help others? We're fans

Since You've Been Gone...

Queue the Kelly Clarkson music, because it's been a really long time since I've been blogging so I thought I'd give a little update on what's been happening Since You've Been Gone... or since I have.

Last time I was here- We were living in Wyoming and our sweet little Magnolia Hope had just been born a few months earlier.

Since then, we moved back to our hometown in southern California and then moved back again to the Tetons- just this time on the other side of the pass in Idaho. It's a long story- and one I will get into once I have the actual time to write about it- but for now- we are just so thankful to be back. Our daughter is almost 2. And it's summer time in the good 'ol mountains. Huzzah!

1.5 years later

Wow... it's been a really long time since I've blogged. I mean- I was pretty consistent for about 6 years and then Bam! Introduce the most wonderful baby into my life and I literally cannot find time to shower let a lone write about our adventures. But I'm going to try and be much, much, much more consistent.

I'll be talking about living in Idaho (since the last time I was on here, we've since moved from Wyoming to back to California, and now back to where we were before- just on the either side of the border in Idaho), sharing some awesome deals (in both my own shop and others), and any other random things that come up.

So if there's anybody still reading this- thanks for sticking around :)
