Depending on where you live this is either the most AWESOME, or silliest thing you have ever seen. It is all about convenience! Introducing Amazon Prime Pantry!
Basically you choose regular sized packages of items and add them to your cart.
This will begin filling your Prime Pantry Box! it can hold 45lbs and ships for $5.99. Now before you say it. Don’t Prime items usually ship free?! Yes, typically. But amazon has been making more and more small items only Prime Pantry or Free Shipping with a $25 purchase. You can imagine that a $0.69 box of baking soda would cost them much more to ship than it is worth. I think the $5.99 shipping is more than reasonable for a 45lb box. Have you shipped anything lately?! The shipping prices are crazy!
Now, each Item you add will tell you which percent of you box it fills and how much you have total! That way you know when you box is full.
Of course, it wouldn’t be smart shopping without coupons! You can clip coupons for many of the items right on the description page or from the coupon page.
I did some browsing on Prime Pantry and it seems the prices of many of the items are comparable to the grocery store. Some even lower after coupon. This would be amazing if you didn’t live near a store, or lived in a higher priced area. This could save you money on gas, and groceries!
Another thing to think of would be making a pantry box to send to someone ill, with a new baby, or just as a care package!
So, what do you think of Prime Pantry, will you be using it?!
