This is my parents' cat Alice. This post isn't actually about her, but isn't she cute? She loves the camera, if you couldn't tell.
As I mentioned in my previous post, while searching for the final ingredient for the laundry detergent recipe, I stumbled upon the site, Alice.com, and have since become addicted.
I used to hate shopping for basics at the store: toilet paper, toothpaste, deoderant -- ugh.
Alice.com gives me the opportunity to shop for all of these things and more from my personal computer -- with free shipping -- and green options! Can you sense my obsession?
The only downsides I've noticed:
- After your first order (which they use to hook you), your shopping cart must have a minimum of six items before you can place an order.
- Obviously with shopping online, you don't receive your purchases instantaneously, so you have to plan ahead a little. So far, though, my orders have arrived in 2-3 business days.
- Product reviews and descriptions so you can compare and see what you're buying
- Prices lower or comparable to discount retailers such as Walmart and Target (especially when it comes to environmentally-friendly products)
- Alice keeps track of what you've purchased and you can set reminders to reorder
- A wide range of products and brands to choose from
- Ability to sort by "green" products
- Some items are marked with instant coupons, which are automatically deducted when you place an order
- FREE SHIPPING
- Green Laundry Dryer Balls (2 in the package): $7.99
- Ultra Green Facial Tissue (1 box): $1.99
- Earth Friendly Bathroom Tissue (2 packages of 4 rolls): $2.79 each = $5.58
- Naturally Fresh Deoderant (1 stick -- I'm a little skeptical of this, to be honest. We'll see.): $3.99 - $0.25 coupon = $3.74
- EconoGreen Kitchen Garbage Bags (box of 30): $4.99
