Yesterday I put on my favorite pair of lounge-around-the-house pants. I totally forgot about them until I cleaned out my drawer a few weeks back — remember when I was cleaning out a drawer a day? Yeah, I need to get back to that.
Anyway, I rediscovered this pair of pants and yesterday when I slipped them on I was reminded again how much I love them. They fit like a glove, are made from the softest material and, surprisingly, are very flattering. They are like the trifecta of yoga pant!
I remember buying them off a clearance rack for like 5 bucks months, if not years, ago but I had no idea of the brand. The tag was removed and all I had to identify them was this logo.
Isn’t social media amazing?! I’m awed by it daily.
Anyway, my hunt brought me to Amazon to see if I could find these pants so I could get another pair. I know I’m a dork but when I find something I like I stick with it. Life is too short not to be comfortable, and let me tell you these pants are comfortable!
While at Amazon I noticed a new feature called Prime Pantry. This is the description:
Prime Pantry is a new shopping experience on Amazon.com. Prime members can shop popular household essentials and have them conveniently delivered.
Adding your first Prime Pantry item to Cart starts a Prime Pantry box. As you shop, you see that each Pantry item tells you what percentage of a Pantry box it fills based on its size and weight. Pantry boxes are large and can hold up to 45 pounds or four cubic feet of household products. As you check items off your list, we continuously track and show you how full your box is.
You can buy as much or as little as you want for a flat $5.99 delivery fee per Prime Pantry box. Save gas, save money, save time.
At first I was like… I don’t get it. How is this different than just buying stuff on Amazon but then I realize how much you can fit in the box for a flat $5.99 shipping rate. I started filling my box with stock items I normally buy at the grocery store but probably shouldn’t because they cost an arm and a leg. Things like toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, even The Husband’s dreaded Doritos — and that’s when it hit me!
See, I would love to shop at the local farmers’ markets and stands more but I often don’t because there’s just no time to make multiple stops when we need household staples not available there. It’s why I didn’t keep up with the CSA I loved so much. I found myself with a weekly share plus a trip to the grocery story and it was getting hard to manage it all.
So I ordered my first box yesterday and according to Amazon most things are already in transit and should be here by tomorrow. I really think this will change the way I shop! Now I can pick up my weekly produce and meat at the farm store and get the household staples delivered right to my door!
Anyone else use Prime Pantry? Good experience? Bad? I’d love your thoughts!
