To Shop or Not To Shop?

First off, quick reminder, you have just one day left to Enter to Win Organic Cookies from HomeFree Treats. 6 full-size yummy packages in all, so don’t miss out! The winner will be announced tomorrow, and after that … a recipe that I think you will really enjoy!

Now onto one of my favorite topics, grocery shopping. Like so many, I shop around for prices, both in stores and online. And I always check the Amazon Grocery deals right on the first of the month. I don’t purchase from there too often, but once in a while I find a gem. My favorite purchase is Nutiva’s Coconut Oil when they have a coupon code for it. I buy the big 54-ounce tubs for a steal (when they have them); love that stuff.

Unfortunately, while the list this month looks enticing, there are really only a couple of items on there that I might realistically have use for. In particular, I am really curious about this coconut water stuff, especially since it is such a great price. Normally it is waaaay out of the range of what I would pay for a drink that size, but with the dealio on Amazon this month the O.N.E. brand of coconut water is less than $1.00 per little aseptic pack. Since I have been looking for a good electrolyte source that isn’t gatorade-like to mix in with some fruit for post-workout, I  was wondering about this stuff. I read through several of the reviews, but they left me feeling muddled. Has anyone tried it? Is it any good? Is it “worth” it? Am I just obsessed with coconut?

On that note, my husband sends me the coupon codes and deals from Amazon in a neat and tidy little list at the very beginning of each month, and I find it pretty handy to just quickly glance through since time is so precious. I just realized that some of you might make use of it to, so I am publishing it here. There is a surprising range of sale items, from very mainstream to oh-so-natural. If it is helpful, I will post them in the future too, let me know! Otherwise, skip this post and come back tomorrow for more yumminess!

    I love this! Keep doing it, please. There are some items I order from Amazon because it’s cheaper than special ordering them through my grocery or health food stores. I’d love to make the prices go down even more with coupon codes!

  2. Christina says:

    How cool! I never knew about amazon codes!

  3. lucy says:

    Hi, it’s lucy (marketing manager) from One Natural Experience…shoot me your address and I’ll send samples out so you can then take advantage of this amazing amazon deal!

  4. RunToFinish says:

    oh I love coupons!

  5. Scoop says:

    I never considered using Amazon for food and groceries. Thank You for the coupon codes!
    I’ll check it out. I especially like they extended their $25 Free Shipment policy to the food section.

  6. Joanne says:

    I love ordering groceries from Amazon. For some of the ones that I use really frequently, I do Subscribe and Save, which keeps them coming as often or as little as want with no shipping charge!

    I have never had the coconut water by I think Meghann over at did and said it tasted like sunscreen smells. I always have that fear with coconut products after having a bad Coconut Bubble Tea once.

  7. Libby says:

    I was resisting temptation until I got to the Enjoy Life products. I may have to order after all!

  8. Erin says:

    Hey, what do you use the coconut oil for? I’m intrigued.

  9. Wow! That is quite the list of coupon codes. Can’t wait for the day that amazon food shopping is avails in Canada!

  10. alisa says:

    Erin – coconut oil works great in baking, is good for cooking when the flavors are appropriate, and I love it for non-cooked applications like frostings, confections, and rich spreads. It is also very emolient and makes a great moisturizer!
