One of THE biggest questions I get, day in and day out, is how I’m able to live well on so little. When I first started blogging, I was living on what the world calls poverty, making $18,000/year. Yet, people would come to my house and their jaws would drop. They’d see a glimpse of my life and they’d have a million and one questions about how I do it.
“How is it possible, that you are a single stay-at-home-mom and have all you have,” they’d ask. I’d chuckle. I figured everyone was doing it. I mean, doesn’t everyone have a savings account?
Doesn’t everyone have a home, a car, kids to feed?
I didn’t understand how my way of living was so different from everyone else’s.
But after so many people ask you what you’re doing, you start to realize that you’re NOT like everyone else. That living what I consider rich on $18,000 with two kids is NOT normal.
I started this blog, as emails to my friends. So, I didn’t have to keep telling the same story over and over and over. I could just point them to a link. “Go here and read all about it,” I’d say. “Oh, I have a post about that topic, here’s the link,” I’d tell them. I had no clue what was about to happen. I had no idea that God would use ME, your totally average girl, to do completely and utterly incredible things.
And, part of me knows that’s why He does. He gives me this life, so that I can share it with you!!!! He taught me how to save money.
Everything I do, everything I say, everything I am is ALL FOR YOU. To help you. To show you there’s a better way. To teach you that you DON’T have to make $60,000/year to barely scrape by. You can live in one of the most sought after subdivisions in your whole area, on $18k/year, and while, honestly, I do make more than that now, I HAVE rocked making so little for so long, that even that I have more now, nothing has changed. I’m still my cheap little self. 🙂
I’ve been a homemaker for 10 years. But more than that, I’ve made money FROM home for around 7 years. It’s been my way of life for so long. The knowledge, the wisdom, the ideas and cleverness of things that I take for granted, someone else is PRAYING for.
Maybe you are feeling like there’s no hope
You’ll never get out of debt…you’ll never be able to have the life you dream of. You wonder, “Is this ALL there is to life…or did I miss something along the way.” I’ve been there, and what I’m about to share with you is a company. It’s a brand that can help you get all your household products for free, yes, but it’s MORE than that!
It’s not JUST a brand, not JUST a company, hear me, THIS IS A WAY OF LIFE. It’s a principle. It’s a pattern. It’s what I do every single day with SEVERAL companies that allow me to have the things I want on the cheap.
Listen, I don’t pay for household goods. I don’t pay for shampoo, household cleaners, pull ups. I don’t pay for beauty supplies, synthetic medicines, or even laundry detergent. I use sneaky little ways like this, to get all that for free, with various companies.
And this isn’t some MLM company where you HAVE TO buy a certain amount every month of products you can’t afford. This isn’t some program promising you that you’ll get rich. This is an honest company where you can earn money simply by sharing their company name with your friends.
I’d like to introduce you a company called Grove Collaborative (formerly ePantry).
Now, I have to tell you, that when I first came across their company, I was pretty skeptical. I mean, I am skeptical about EVERYTHING. I’m that practical girl who’s always looking out of the corner of her eye, thinking, “Yah, right!”
After researching this company thoroughly, I believe I found a diamond in the rough, and I’m SO excited to share it with you.
I cannot even begin to express to you how cool this is.
Basically you become a customer of theirs. Now, here’s the fun part…
They will PAY YOU a $10 credit on your first order. If you act before May 3 at 6pm PDT, you get free shipping and a free Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap to boot! Talk about cool!
Okay, so you get a $10 credit and a product to join, right
…but that’s not even the best part!!!
For EVERY SINGLE PERSON you refer to join with them, YOU EARN $10 credit!! So, let’s say, 5 people every month join from your link, you get $50 worth of their products ABSOLUTELY FREE.
And there’s NO limit!!!! You can earn as much as you want.
There are a few companies that I go through that have this kind of system set up and I’m telling you, the money is FANtastic!
Imagine if you had a blog. You put up a link and BAM, you can get hundreds of people to join.
Imagine if you told just a few friends about this and BAM, you get your monthly household products for FREE! I like free stuff, don’t you?
It’s really not that difficult. When you refer a friend, tell your friend they earn $10 for joining. You earn $10 in credit, they earn $10 in credit. Seriously, this is the coolest program ever! Are you seeing the possibilities?!?! The sky is literally the limit.
I’m pretty sure you already know 5 people who would want to get a free $10 credit and join. Your mom, your aunt, your cousin, your neighbor, your friends at church, the parents at school.
Chances are you already know hundred’s of people who would want to capitalize on this really cool offer. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO…is ask!
What do you think? Do you want to start getting your household products for free? You really couldn’t ask for a better program.
How ePantry works
Step 1: This special offer of getting a free Mrs. Meyers hand soap is only available now through this Sunday May 3rd and it’s only available right now to my readers, so be sure to join with this link in order to get it.
Step 2: Just answer a few very quick questions about your home, cleaning schedule, and favorite products (this takes a couple minutes at the most!)
Step 3: Next is the fun step: customizing your basket! You can add or remove as many products as you would like.
Step 4: Once you have your basket set, click Finish & Pay. You’ll need to be at a final amount of $20 or more (that’s only for your first order).
Instead of going to the store or worrying about remembering to pick up this or that when you’re there, you just have the products shipped to your door.
Just like Amazon’s Subscribe and Save, you’ll get the products shipped out to you according to your schedule. ePantry will email you 7 days before your shipment goes out, so you’re never stuck with something you don’t want.
Don’t want it shipped at a certain time?
Simply change the date as many times as you want to whenever you want. It’s full customizable. Delete something, add something. Change the order completely. You’re not bound to order the same things at all, but having a schedule where things are shipped out, can make things SOO much easier, especially if you are getting the products for free anyway! 🙂
How to earn an extra $2 off
You like saving money, right? So, do I. So, I’m always on the scout for as much savings as I can possibly get. Here’s a trick. When you go to the site using my link, there’s a small little chat box in the bottom corner. Simply answer the quick question they give and BAM, you just saved another $2!!! The trick is not to go to the site and click out, because once you do, it won’t show up again, so you might have to clear your cookies and start again.
ePantry is VERY conscientious of sending eco products. Products that you can feel good about buying and that help (not hurt) the environment. The products are always quality, so you know exactly what you’re getting. I love that they have Seventh Generation. It’s an awesome brand!
