A Blissmo Bonanza!April 14, 2012
Once again I have been single-handedly stimulating the economy and keeping FedEx, UPS, and the postal service in business.
I’m a born and bred middle class American with the culturally instilled propensity to buy things. I also tend toward the cheap side, so I really don’t spend liberally and we do live modestly (really, we do). Still, I also believe that the only way to convince corporate America that it is worth their while to produce environmentally healthy products is by purchasing them.
I love getting my monthly blissmo box and I always check out the offers, although I often don’t buy. Still, the voucher offers are always a good deal (often something like $40 worth of products for $20 or thereabouts) and I had accumulated a few last fall. I didn’t see anything I wanted to buy for gifts (not that there weren’t plenty of gift-worthy items, I was just done there) so I stashed them away in my blissmo e-mail folder until spring when I wouldn’t feel guilty about buying for myself.
And now its spring. Over the last couple of days my selections have arrived.
I bought Burt’s Bees products from Green Cupboards. The local selection for these products has been limited of late for some reason.
On Friday my last package arrived. It was from Zhena’s Gypsy Tea. I am enjoying a cup of Caramel Chair as I type this. Ahhh.
Oh, and in the blissmo box. So far I’ve scarfed down the dried apples. So sweet I had to check, but really no additional sweeteners. My husband and I also made quick business of the roasted almonds with wild rosemary. We are going to have to track these down again!
I probably should mention that no one has paid me in anyway for my opinions. I’m just really happy with this week’s green take. When it rains, it pours.
Time for more tea.
