ePantry.com: $11 Off + Free Shipping

This post contains affiliate links. You can read our full disclosure policy here.

Our family tries to take little, manageable steps towards healthier living. One way we’ve done that is by choosing more natural products when we can. That’s why I was really excited when I found out how to get an $11 credit and free shipping to ePantry.

ePantry is very much like Amazon’s Subscribe & Save Program. ePantry is free to join and you can cancel at anytime.

When you first sign up, you answer a few quick questions about your family and the household products you use. This only takes a couple of minutes.

After you answer the questions, you have the option for them to choose the products for your box for you or you can pick your own products. I chose to pick my own products.

You’ll automatically get $10 off your first purchase by using this link. To get another $1 off, click on the Help button in top right corner, then click on the FAQ page. Your order total will need to be at least $30 before the $10 credit will work.

Here’s what I ended up ordering:

  • 1 Tom’s of Maine Botanically Bright Toothpaste,
  • 2 Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant,
  • 1 Method Foamy Hand Soap (10 oz. dispenser), and
  • 2 Method Foamy Hand Refill (28 oz. pouches)

The listed retail price for these items totaled $49, but with the ePantry savings and the $11 credit I was able to get everything shipped for only $22! That’s a significant savings especially since the refill pouches each fill the hand soap dispenser 3 times (so it’s like getting 10 items for only $2.20 each!).

Go to checkout, place your order, and get some household products shipped to your door at a great price!

If you don’t use natural products around the house, you can use the $11 off of razors and refill blades as well as several varieties of Crest toothpaste and mouthwash.

Note: Just like Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program, you can continue receiving shipments. ePantry lets you choose when you want to receive your next shipment and what you want to order. They also send an email reminder 7 days before your next shipment. You can always adjust your order or cancel your subscription.

Plus, you can share this deal and get a $20 credit!

Through Monday only (9/22/14), you can earn a free $20 credit for every person you refer to ePantry who signs up and places an order. This is a great way to earn some free ePantry credit to use for household purchases!

  1. Sign up for an ePantry account
  2. Place your first order
  3. ePantry assigns you a referral link. It’s at the end of your order confirmation email and also under your account information. Share your link on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter or email it to friends. Every person that uses your link will get $10 of their first order of $30 or more and you’ll receive $20 in credit to use on future orders from ePantry.com. (The regular referral credit is $10.)

First Day of School Pictures (on the second day)

I printed off first day of school signs the weekend before we planned to start.

Then, on the first day of school, I completely forgot to take the pictures.

So here are our “first-day-of-school” pictures (actually taken on the second day of school). Take my word for it, the kids looked the same as they did the day before :)

How has the beginning of school gone for your family? Did you take first day of school pictures or do you purchase school photos through your child’s school?

Goals Update and New Goals for September

So, we’re already a week into September and I’m just getting around to writing up this post and making my goals for the month. I’m definitely using the excuse of having a newborn in the house :)

(That excuse works for the first year, right???)

Monthly Goals Update for June 2014 @ AllOurDays.com #goals #monthlygoals #writethemdown

These are the goals I set for August and how I actually did at completing them. You may notice a trend that several of these started falling apart once Isabelle was born…there’s nothing like sleep deprivation to make once easy tasks much, much harder.

Personal

1. Read through the book of Proverbs. Continue reading Jesus Calling daily. This was a little rocky in August. I did well for the first few weeks, but it was hit and miss after that.

2. Continue to drink 12 cups of fluid including 4 cups of red raspberry leaf tea each day. I rocked this one. I’m still not sure if red raspberry leaf tea helps speed up labor, but since my labor was only 2 hours long, I can safely guess that it didn’t hurt.

Marriage

3. Continue to make praying for Tim a priority. I’m still working on this, but it’s getting easier.

4. Help Tim with the new shop as much as possible. I think I can say I helped as much as I could in August.

Parenting

5. Continue reading at least one chapter of our current read aloud every day during or after lunch. Again, I did this almost daily the first half of the month. After Isabelle was born this got a little more difficult.

6. Continue reading Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids each morning. We managed to keep this up all month, even with all the celebrations and special occasions.

Homeschooling

7. Continue with the Hooked on Phonics iPad app and xtramath.org practice 3 days a week. We did fairly well with xtramath work (both kids are showing vast improvements), but only did Hooked on Phonics for the first half of the month.

8. Continue working on our preliminary list of books we can get from the library to go along with the science and history DVDs we’ll be using this fall. I erased this goal a week into August because I just knew I wasn’t going to have time. Instead I’ll be compiling a reading list for 2-3 weeks at a time.

Homemaking

9. Work on the kids clothing bins. Pass on enough clothes so that each size fits easily in one bin with at least a little room left over. Make simple labels telling the contents of each bin. I went through the baby girl bin, but haven’t made it any further. It’s a daunting task to be sure, but I think I’ll just combine it with our semi-annual clothing switch. That way I only need to go through the bins once.

10. Finish flower girl dresses. I finished these and I think they turned out beautifully!

11. Purge and organize our spice and baking cabinet. Did this (and blogged about it)

12. Continue to work on consistency in planning dinners. I did really well for the first half of the month. Thankfully, I haven’t had to do as much planning since we’ve had help with dinners at least a few nights a week since Isabelle was born.

Blogging

13. Brainstorm a list of blog post topics and implement a more consistent blogging schedule. I did okay with posting more, but still need to be more consistent.

14 (Simple) Goals for September: Personal, Marriage, Homeschooling, Homemaking, & Blogging Goals from a Mom of 6 @ AllOurDays.com #goals, #monthlygoals, #goalsfor2014

I’m purposefully keeping my goals light for September since we have a newborn, we’re starting back into school full-swing, Tim’s working on opening a new restaurant, and all three of my mom’s siblings will be visiting from California this month. I keep telling myself that someday we’ll miss all the activity :)

Personal

1. Continue reading Jesus Calling daily. 

2. Exercise 4 days a week.

3. Read something encouraging everyday. 

Marriage

3. Pray for Tim multiple times everyday. I’m working on a way or remembering to do this…I’ll let you know how it works.

Parenting

4. Pray specifically for each of my children.

5. Continue reading Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids each morning. 

6. Read at least one chapter of our current read aloud every weekday. I need to try to find a consistent time, but also realize that life with a newborn (and older baby) is unpredictable so I need to fit in reading when I can.

Homeschooling

7. Look over school plans and finish scheduling out main subjects. Don’t stress out!

8. Start back officially. Take first day photos. Our first day of school is September 15th. (Here are the first day photos for 2012 and 2013.)

Homemaking

9. Focus on decluttering main areas. Things have piled up a bit and need to be cleared away. I find I’m much more kind, patient, productive, and creative when things are tidy.

10. Get back to using cloth diapers. We’ve used disposables since Isabelle was born to make life (and laundry) a little easier. Each of the babies have a few left and then it’s back to cloth.

11. Add some easy meals to the freezer.

12. Plan out dinners each week.

Blogging & Etsy Shop

13. Finish up current custom orders. Disable “Request Custom Order” button for the rest of September. This month will be busy enough without me working on any more custom prints.

14. Figure out if I have enough early childhood printables stored up to share one each day during the 31 days of October.

 What are your main goals for September?
