Have you heard about Brandless?

They’ve created a collection of 300+ everyday essentials that includes non GMO food (with values like organic, vegan, and gluten free), clean beauty basics, non-toxic cleaning supplies, and more.

Brandless was brought to life with the intention of making better stuff accessible and affordable for more people. Their mission is deeply rooted in quality, transparency, and community-driven values. Better stuff, fewer dollars. It’s that simple.

A box of Brandless snacks, personal care and other items would make a GREAT gift idea for any college student on your list. It’s also perfect timing if you need to stock up for holiday entertaining.

In addition to saving money on pantry, laundry, vitamins, bath & beauty, and cleaning supplies, you can also help feed families in need.

Now through 11/23, Brandless will donate 10 meals to Feeding America for every order you place.  This is in addition to the usual donations Brandless makes for every customer’s order.

Feeding America is our nation’s leading domestic hunger relief organization, and a cause worth supporting this holiday season and all year long.

You can also help earn more donations when you share this post on Twitter using the hashtag #givingisbrandless.

Stock your pantry for the holidays while helping others do the same. Visit Brandless.com to learn more.

If you haven’t already discovered Zulily.com you are missing out on some super CUTE stuff for home and pets! You might have seen the commercials recently…they just started running, but the popular shopping site has been around for years. I’ve gotten some of my favorite finds from Zulily, including Daisy’s food bowls, our sofa throw pillows, cute wooden signs for my desk and office, plus jewelry, beauty supplies, yoga stuff and more.

If you’re wondering how it works, it’s super easy. You create a free account using your email address, and then each day Zulily launches several new sales events in different categories including Home Decor, Beauty, Baby, Pets, Shoes, Accessories, Clothing, Kitchen, Bath, etc. If you see a deal you like, you buy it…but be quick because each event lasts only 3 days. And because it’s like an Outlet Mall, items are limited and can sell out quickly. There are NO membership fees or commitments.
