Box: Grove Collaborative (this link gives you $10 and me $10 when you sign up)!
Contents: Curated and/or self-selected eco-friendly products such as Health, Cleaning, Laundry, Hand and Body, Face and Hair, Kids, Scent Free, Oral Care, etc. to ship when you want it (monthly and/or on demand)! Some of the Brands carried are Seventh Generation, Acure Organics, Method, Mrs. Meyers, Molly’s Suds, and house brand Grove Collaborative.
Cost: Price of your items (usually discounted) plus $2.99 shipping (waived if you are a VIP member see more details below).
Kick Back and Get Comfortable:
I LOVE the service that Grove Collaborative offers. Every item that I received was either a promotional free item or discounted. I will keep a lookout for more promos and let you know! Most of the products that I bought were not found on discount via my beloved Amazon. Because I wanted to avoid passing Target and paying $200, we would buy our cleaning products on Home Depot (which were not discounted at all).
We all know how I want to save money in the comfort of my own home.
I found signing up was easy. Grove Collaborative asks a few questions and then curates a box for you. You can then feel free to delete and add items as you wish.
There is a $2.99 shipping charge BUT if you sign up for VIP status, the shipping fee is waived! So while you are shopping look into the VIP trial because you receive free shipping for two months and then you pay $19.99 for a year. In addition to VIP status, you will receive freebies amounting to five (5!) full size items within a year so $19.99 pays for itself in (1) free shipping, (2) five full size items and (3) the already discounted savings on items purchased!!! And if you forget to add the VIP trial to your order (like I did) the VIP trial option appears after you place your first order. And then if you forget that, I am sure the awesome customer service will take of you!
Once you make an order you can set up to change when you want your next delivery and what products you want for that delivery. Grove Collaborative will send advance email reminders and a text reminder (if you give your cell) when a monthly box is scheduled so you can make any modifications to that order. Also a week after you sign up, you will be able to “purchase now” if you need something now.
Note on Customer Service:
Not only is customer service awesome, make sure you look under the customer service representative’s signature because there might be a link with a coupon to one of their favorite products. You know me and codes and coupons.
I also was recently sent an email blast from Grove Collaborative with some points that they wanted their customers to be aware of and if you are not happy with a product they will compensate you! How awesome is that!?!
An other awesome plus is that if there is a promo for new customers, Grove Collaborative usually also rewards continuing customers with a promo as well!
Codes and/or Coupons for new and continuing customers = A Happy and Loyal Pnut
Price Matching Deets:
I noticed when I was stalk tracking my Grove Co box one of their advertisements on the tracking page was for the VIP program features. One of the features was “price matching”!
Online Price Matching be still my heart!!!
As always, the third weeist of my Pnut people
and the true middle child of the family who demands to be treated as the baby of the family
wants me to get started on the review…
Squeakette gets straight to work!
Well I did not know that this existed until I searched Grove’s new products for this order. I jumped at it. Have you heard of using chainmail to clean cast iron? See here my inner geek always wanted to get one but I fear like a greasy mess and who wants greasy chainmail (and my lack of elbow grease see below for my actual review)?
What is also good are these credit cardish looking scrapers from Lodge see here.
I digress, I was supposed to review the above picture first and not two other related products. My bad.
I like this brush a ton! The backside top is flat so you can use it as a scraper.
I lack good elbow grease so using assistance via brush handles helps!
It is also satisfying to clean as opposed to being a big pain since one can not wash cast iron with soapy products. And now I can wash my cast iron without using gloves since I have this nifty brush!
I have new motivation to always check for new products at Grove. I wish I would have known about this sooner!!!
I must have now saved several hours of my life scrubbing cast iron!!!
The only bad thing I have to say about this is that Full Circle’s Marketing Department should have named it
“Full Circle Tater Mater [blah blah blah]”
Anyways, this is pretty nifty. The brush and the eye remover parts and all.
Updated: As per Ake’s request, here is a demo of the Tater Mate
That potato brush is so cute.
Being cute helps. Cuteness is a motivator for cleanliness right?
And now it is easier to clean my cast iron with my new brush, I can use my cast iron more!
Easy cleaning is a motivator for cooking right?
Grove Co = My monthly cleaning motivation.
Because even Amazon Save & Subscribe doesn’t motivate me.
