friends in frugality: Subscribe & SAVE

dearest friends in frugality,

should you share the insatiable need to buy things in bulk and have 8 lbs of butter on hand at all times -- cuz ya never know.  (see law of consecration)

yet realize the the impact on the environment and pocket book are reduced when one plans ahead. "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail."

if any of this rings true ... then i might have the deal for you ;)

in my quest for equality -- my very own version of utopia where everyone has what they need and even a wee bit of what they want. but not so much that they forget what want feels like -- i want to share with you my new costco that delivers. its called subscribe & save

its pretty awesome because i've been able to buy in bulk exactly what i want.  but the best part: it comes to me.  i don't have to deal with the costco parking lot and the lines and all the temptations to buy crap i don't need etc.

it gets even lazier.  for stuff i know i go through at a certain pace, you set up a delivery schedule ... and they give you a discount!  so here are some of the things i have purchased that i feel like are cheaper than most stores per item AND are of the exact quality and social values i want.  i feel like it gives me more freedom to use my money as a statement of values because i can clearly compare choices and get what i believe is the most value -- VALUE -- which doesn't always equal cheapest, or fastest, or highest rated, or  imported or domestic.  i get to decide.

so ... friends, enjoy Subscribe & Save
