It’s time again for my Grove Collaborative January 2020 order unboxing! My Grove box is one of my favorite things, and its great for many different reasons. I didn’t order anything in December. If you missed November’s box click here.
What is Grove Collaborative?
First, what is Grove Collaborative? Well, its a website where you can get all kinds of good-for-you and good-for-the-Earth products for your home and family delivered right to your doorstep. I use it mostly for cleaning supplies, but they have all kinds of things including skin care, baby care, and laundry products. I find the prices comparable to Target, plus they will price match if you find a better deal. They also have in-house Grove branded items that are fabulous!
Grove VIP Program
Grove has a VIP membership plan that gets you free shipping and access to Free Gifts and other benefits several times a year. I’ve been a Grove Collaborative VIP for a little over a year, and I really love it. I think of this fee as like I’m paying my Amazon Prime fee. I set aside $1.63 per paycheck (we get 24 checks) to cover my membership each year. To get that back, I always order enough to get a free gift. Each month, they have a few items to choose from that you get for free when you spend a certain amount on your order.
You do not have to place an order each month, and you can schedule when you want your deliveries and what items you want in that order. For example, we did not place an order all summer while we were remodeling the kitchen & laundry room.
Sound interesting? Right now, you can get a 5-piece Mrs. Meyers gift set (a $35 value) FOR FREE when you sign up and place your first order! Once you’re a member, you’ll get a referral link to give the same deal to your friends and you’ll get a $10 Credit!
My January 2020 Grove Order
I ordered earlier than I usually do because something I’ve been wanting for months was finally not sold out. Let’s see what I got in my Grove Collaborative January 2020 box!
First up is Method Daily Steel Cleaner. I got this in my last box, and it makes cleaning our new appliances a breeze! There is still plenty left in the last bottle. I use it a couple of times a week. This is a back up bottle. It’s $4.99 for this bottle.
Next was a new dish brush. We’ve used this Full Circle FOMO Foaming Dish Brush for a little over a year. We have always used brushes with soap in the handle and reusable brush heads. I like this one because it doesn’t use as much soap as other brushes. It was time to replace the handle, so I added this to my order. It sells for $6.
In December, I use the Mrs. Meyers Peppermint Hand Soap around the house, so it was time for our regular Geranium refill bottle. This bottle is $6.99, and I usually get one in every Grove order.
I used a couple of my Walnut Scrubbers, and I like to keep a full drawer of them under the sink. So I threw a 2 pack in this order. They are $3.95 for 2.
Because my order was placed during the first week of the year, Grove was a bit backed up on their orders. Tons of people make New Year’s Resolutions to use less chemicals or plastics, so they order from Grove. Because my order took a few extra days to ship, they threw in this Hand Cream as a Free Gift! I’ve used this before and really like it. It normally sells for $7.95.
Last month I told you that I really wanted the Grove Collaborative Toilet Brush, but that it was sold out. Well, it was back in stock earlier this month, and that triggered me to place my order early. I usually try to place an order when I have enough for a free gift. But, I was worried this would go out of stock again. I’m really happy with the quality of this brush and base. I love the DE disc in the bottom of the crock. That eliminates nasty, germy water from collecting in the base. I also like that you can replace the brush heads. I’m already trying to up the budget so that I can get one for every toilet in the house. The Grove Collaborative Toilet Brush Set is $24.95.
Because I ordered early to get my toilet brush, I did not have enough in my order to hit the free gift threshold. I did have 1 $10 referral credit to use. My Grove Collaborative January 2020 box total came to $40.18 for 6 items. That’s $6.70 per item, which is higher than my normal order, but that’s because of the toilet brush. The total cost of everything would have been $54.83, and I didn’t have to drive anywhere or pay shipping. Grove is now charging Sales Tax for Texas customers.
In the year+ that I’ve been a Grove Member, I’ve received several free gifts including full sized Hand Sanitizer, my favorite sponges, microfiber cloths, not to mention the FREE $35 5-piece Mrs. Meyer’s Set that I got when I first signed up. I make sure to get my VIP membership’s worth each year. Saving gas and time are bonuses!
With Grove, I know I don’t have to worry about the products that are coming into my home or that I’ll have a bad experience. Each order is checked for accuracy. They’ve even been writing me thank yous on the boxes! You get plenty of notice before its time for your order to ship so that you can review the products you need or move your shipment date. Your Grove representative will email or text you (or both) before its time.
I love shopping with Grove Collaborative, and I hope you do too! Get your FREE $35 5-piece Mrs. Meyer’s Gift Set when you place your first Grove Order! If you already shop Grove, what are some of your favorite products? Tell me in the comments! I’m always looking to try new items in my next order.
