When I talked about stocking your pantry/freezer & household items/toiletries, that may not be possible for some of you. Maybe you can’t pull enough out of your daily budget or savings to stock your pantry & closet for 3 months. Or maybe you simply don’t have the space to do so.
In that case, here are some places you can shop that will ship things right to your door or at least allow easy pick up.
With a CSA you can get a selection of in season, local, and even organic fresh fruit & vegetables. If you are really lucky, your particular farm might even provide milk, baked goods & meat. If yours does, I’m jealous :). You can find a local CSA at LocalHarvest.org.
If you eat healthier, real-food foods, Vitacost is a great way to find those hard to find foods and supplements that someone might not know how or where to find for you. If you’ve never used them before, you can get $10 off your order of $30 or more. Just use the link above for the $10 coupon.
I like soap.com for it’s household & personal care items. If you are brand loyal (i.e. you know what works and you buy that), it’s great because they have most everything both greenish and conventional.
For specific baby items, I like Diapers.com. You can get everything baby related — pacifiers, nursing pjs, diapers, wipes, furniture, baby monitors, or whatever else you’ve decided that you need. That happened a lot with our first. We figured we’d buy the basics and not much else until we decided it was more annoying to NOT have it than go buy it.
And of course for everything else there is Amazon! You can get free 2 days shipping w/Amazon prime and discounts on baby stuff through Amazon Mom. And for those middle of the night nagging questions, you can always download the kindle books like Dr. Sears Baby Book or The Breastfeeding Book to answer burning questions in the middle of the night.
