One thing I love from Grove and one thing I don’t.

This post contains affiliate links.

Hey guys! Two things:


When I told you about the special offer Grove is extending to FG readers, I said it would end on Sunday.

But because I wasn’t able to post about it the first day of the campaign, Grove is giving you all one extra day to take advantage of it!

So, until 6pm tonight, you can place your first $20 order with Grove and get all of this for free, PLUS free shipping!

And if you’re already a Grove customer, click here to get a free 2-pack of their walnut scrubber sponges added to your order.


I want to tell you about one thing I love from Grove and one thing I don’t so much.

But first, I made a list of things you can order from Grove that will actually save you money over time. Check if out if you’re not sure what to put in your cart!

Ok, so, a thing I love that Grove just started carrying is the Burt’s Bee’s tinted lip balm. I’m not a huge lipstick wearer, and when I saw this tinted lip balm at the grocery store earlier this summer, I picked some up (and, um, I paid more than what Grove charges. Whoops.)


I love it! It feels a lot better on my lips than lipstick does, and it gives me just a little bit of color.

And the product I don’t love so much?

Mrs. Meyer’s body wash.

It’s weird, because I really, really adore Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap. Like crazy much.

But the body wash is pretty pricey, it’s a thick consistency, and I’m not really a fan of the basil scent I tried either.

So, I’d skip the Mrs. Meyer’s body wash and get some Burt’s Bee’s tinted lip balm instead.

Or some Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap.   That is never a wrong choice. 😉

(Pro-tip: plain shampoo makes a great body wash, and it’s almost always cheaper than actual body wash.)

You have to shop through the links on my blog to get your freebies, so here you go:

I got my Grove kit...such nice quality items. I didn't realize I was supposed to squeeze the whole tube of cleaning concentrate into the 16 oz bottle of water. Being a penny pincher (and I know I'm in good company here), I wonder if I could use less of the concentrate and still get a good cleaning product. Has anyone tried that?

I checked out Grove based on your reviews. I didn't find their prices to be any less expensive than buying the same materials at target or through Amazon. It's for the items were considerably more expensive. Is there something I'm missing?

If you live in a small town like I do the prices at Grove are considerably less. Several dollars on each item up to half price on some plus we have a 7.5% sales tax in town ( we have one grocery, pharmacy and hardware store here). Plus much bigger variety at Grove. Target, Costco, Trader Joe's are all stores I love but are 1 1/2 hours away from home so I do not make it there nearly as often as I would like. If it were not for blogs I never would have heard of Aldi or sprouts and boy I would love to shop at both those places!

The main advantage over Target is that you don't have to go somewhere (saves time and gas), and that you don't have to resist impulse purchases.

Over Amazon, the main advantage is that you're supporting a smaller company who makes a much larger effort to be earth-friendly than Amazon does.

And of course, your introductory offer is a really, really great deal monetarily.

We are long time Grove members and I love Mrs Meyer's dish soaps too! In fact, I just ordered the max number of apple cider scent dish soap last week...can't wait to smell it! I like that I can customize my order and ship dates too. We are VIP members so we get free shipping. I love the walnut scrubber sponges and usually order at least one two-pack with every order!

I agree 100% about the body wash. Not a fan. But I do love Grove and I really appreciate you scoring us some free things.

So so funny, I dont care for the body wash either. I'm also pretty sure I didin't even get the basil scent :) Not really sure what it was but din't care for it. I haven't tried the lip balm yet though maybe the next order.

Yes! Definitely try the lip balm.
