Grove Collaborative Has Turned Me Into My Mother.
Gone are the days where I can make fun of my mother for getting enjoyment out of cleaning. I remember in my teens looking at my mother and thinking to myself, “there is no way she is enjoying that.” after begging me to clean my room for going on the 6th time. I HATED cleaning and, It wasn’t until about 24, 25 that I actually experienced enjoyment from it.
I was never too particular on any specific cleaning products, I had a few I preferred from Walmart or Target but, nothing to write home about. Honestly, whatever got the job done and smelled nice was fine with me! I also didn’t make it a thing to shop from the same brand or store. A little bit of research online and only got items while they were on sale meant spending additional time but honestly I was saving a good penny! It’s actually smart to do things that way unless of course, you find somewhere that always offers the “Best Deals” I hate to sound so sales-like but honestly, Grove Collaborative is the perfect place to order some of my favorite products. I’m so confident that you’ll feel the same way that I am going to list a few stores that also sell these products.
The top brands you’ll find in Grove Collaborative are
Grove Collaborative(Of course) + More
Most of these products you can find at Target, Walmart, Publix, etc for essentially the same price. Target is actually known for Method and Mrs. Meyers and I hear people ranting and raving about them all the time. I think I found Mrs. Meyers for the first time years ago at Target and loved the smells. As far as Grove Collaborative goes, you can only get that on their website.
What Are The Benefits Of Grove Collaborative?
Being that you can get these products in Major stores, I thought it would be beneficial to point out the reasons Grove Co is the way to go. Don’t worry, I’ll point out some cons too and how to work around them!
No Effort Subscription
The fact that I can go into my account and schedule my items by month or every other month etc. is so convenient. You can also make these adjustments by item. You may not need dish soap as often as hand soap or floor cleaner as often as laundry detergent, Grove understands this and you get to choose!
When I first signed up on Grove I didn’t realize I would get 5 products for free. I actually saw some woman posting about it and I normally don’t watch those dumb videos of people opening boxes, but, this woman was FUNNY. I can’t even remember who posted it but I saw The Meyers products and figured ey If I only get a bit of entertainment from this I’m okay with that. The link on post referred me to a page that gave me 5 free products and free VIP Subscription which meant free shipping and discounts.
I ended up adding all my favorite products because It was easier for me to order online than bring up bags to my apartment on the 2nd floor for things I may have gotten in Target. My second month I thought of skipping since I only needed hand soap and I could probably make it another month. I received an email a few days before my shipment would have gone out with two free gifts! My favorite sponges and a lip balm I had in my favorites I was going to order the month after. Again, I added a few new things and only $27 later again free shipping, I’m anxiously waiting for the products to get here!
Yes, There May Be A Con/ Catch
Some people feel like the subscription is where they catch you and, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a bad thing. Once you sign up and make your first order, you items automatically go on your subscription list to order and send out in exactly one month. I am very familiar with subscriptions so I kind of know my way around them. I removed all my products from subscription In case I didn’t like them once they came. I also wasn’t sure if the price would go up on these and I wanted to keep an eye on it. Grove also has a plan where you can order on an as need basis! Although I like the subscription because I feel It is convenient I’m aware that it may not be practical for everyone. I think this option is also good for people who may not be computer savvy or understand how the platform works/how to use it. I also want to point out that before every delivery/ shipment Grove will send you an email letting you know what is on your order list. There are no surprises here!
I honestly really enjoy these products and want to recommend the Peony scented products. I kind of HATE the mint so I’m going to pass on that and hope you all do the same. Unless you’re one of those people who just want to see the world burn!
So, yes I am now my mother, enjoying cleaning the house and telling people about how great they are. Thanks, Mother!
