Save Money and the Planet by Shopping Here

If you could save money shopping online and divert waste from landfills at the same time, would you do it?

For example: Would you want to save 75% on power tools by buying one that came wrapped in bubble wrap instead of its original box?

Um, let me think...YES! Of course you would. 

I had never heard of today's sponsor, Blinq, when they first contacted me about their shopping site. When I checked it out, though, I was impressed! Not only were their customer reviews excellent but they had a great selection of products!

They had high end car seats for kids (including the highly coveted Britax brand!)

They had great stuff from Ryobi (my fave power tools brand)

They had kid gear from Skip Hop (another brand favorite of mine)

In fact, they have ALL KINDS of stuff from clothes and accessories to kid and baby gear to power tools. They also have computers, appliances and more!

They gave me a credit to try the service for myself and for just $138 I was able to buy all of these great items to get ready for spring in the farmhouse:
Ryobi Electric Lopper
(I have a date with some bushes and a couple trees)
Two Ultrasonic Pest Repellers
(it is a BAD year for mosquitos, ya'll!)

Toobeez EZ Fort Building Kit
(The boys are going to LOVE this!)

Two sets of Six Solar Garden Lights
(night time garden beautification project!)

$138 you guys - for 6 items that average about $50 each! What a steal! 

On top of that, shipping is always FREE - no matter how much or little you buy!

Helping the planet

Did you know that many times when you buy something online and then return it, it doesn't go back on the shelf to be re-sold? In fact, more than 4 BILLION pounds of returned and excess inventory end up in landfills every year? Instead of waving as those items are shipped off to be disposed of, Blinq rescues the usable goods and finds homes for them instead. 

When they do this, they pass the savings on to you - you can save up to 70% off retail prices when you shop Blinq. AND you help keep perfectly usable stuff out of the landfill! It's a win for everyone!

To insure the quality of the items they're selling, they inspect every item before listing it on the site. If you have a problem with any purchase, you have 30 days to return it for a full refund

As if saving landfill space and money weren't enough, Blinq also plants a tree for every order placed on their website via their partnership with Trees for the Future.

Check them out!

Be sure to popover to Blinq (and bookmark it for later!) and check them out! If you want to save even more money, you can opt-in to emails from them and get a code that will give you 10% off your already discounted purchase!
