Shop To Earn Challenge – Save Money Shopping Online: Week 1

Ready, set, round two!

The Shop To Earn Shopping Challenge is back for your shopping, spending, and saving supervision. Follow Kym Boucher’s savings for the next 30 days as she only shops through her ShopToEarn mall. The rules for the challenge are simple, Kym is allowed to shop at a grocery store once a week but the rest of her shopping for the month have to be through ShopToEarn or ShopToEarth.

First, here’s a little background on Kym. She lives in Easton, PA with her husband, Jimmy B. They have three children, a college-aged daughter, another daughter in high school, and a son in middle school. They joined Shop To Earn in March 2008 when Rick Clark introduced them to the company.

Why Kym Loves Shop To Earn?
“I sit at my computer, place my order, go about my business, and within a couple days, the "present man" arrives at my door (or my daughter's college dorm!) with ANYTHING we might need! Today, for example, I opened up my Shop To Earth box and got the Yummy Earth lollipops I keep on hand for my students in school, as well as my favorite dips from Simply Organic for the tailgating parties we go to throughout the fall. I love having so much selection at my fingertips AND I save money while doing it! I am a firm believer in saving my money and, mostly, my time but I also appreciate ShopToEarth's message of making a difference in our world. Being a part of this company just makes $en$e! Shop on!” Kym Boucher @ShoppingDivaKB

Shop To Earth Featured Product: Green Goods WaterWeek Water Bottles

Did you know that every day more than 25 million plastic bottles find their way into landfills and incinerators? As you know, it is very important to stay hydrated while on the go, unfortunately, those convenient plastic bottles are clogging up our waterways and polluting the ocean.

One ShopToEarth vendor, Green Good and WaterWeek water bottles, are making it easy for people to reduce the number of water bottles they throw out each year. WaterWeek is a necessary staple in every green household. The set includes five reusable water bottles that you can fill with your beverage of choice and chill in your refrigerator.

Made from durable, BPA free plastic, these water bottles are designed to go wherever you are; whether that is in the car, at the office or in the gym. Safe for the dishwasher and freezer, they even come in a 10oz size, which is perfect for your children's lunch box.

WaterWeek water bottles are available in a variety of fun colors and designs so you are sure to find something that matches your kitchen decor. They also come with a plastic tray that holds the bottles securely in your refrigerator so you can just grab and go.

In addition to being kind to the planet and saving up to $500 a year by using these water bottles instead of purchasing bottled water from the grocery store, you will earn $1.00 cash back on every purchase. As a bonus, $1.00 will be donated to the Shop To Earth Foundation.

Green Good WaterWeek water bottles can be found on the home page of Shop To Earth as a featured product.

Save green and live green by buying green.
