Giveaway: The ultimate one-stop-shop with giveaway

Have you ever gone to your favorite store that starts with a “T” and ends with a “t” as you shop through the aisles with your restless and antsy child? And maybe you spend a little more money than you should because they have a way of sidetracking you from your shopping list. I promise you’re not alone…

My friends if you have not discovered yet, I am here to tell you that they are the perfect solution for the eco-lifestyle parent looking to escape exhaustive trips to the store, long lines, and lugging bags in one hand and child in the other. has come up with a simple idea to make life easier for parents.

Shopping online beats waiting in line any day. With, there are no trips to the store, no circling the aisles, and of course, no waiting in line. Ever.” is giving one lucky Family Sponge reader a $100 giftcard + A Method Home Starter Bundle which contains all of the non-toxic home essentials you need to keep your home smelling fresh and clean.

How works

With over 40,000 household, health and beauty essentials (including grocery and school supplies), you shop for the products you love and adore that are easily categorized by traits like Organic USDA Certified, Gluten-Free, Bio-Degradable, and Vegan.

They carry my personal favorite and trusted brands like: Method, Seventh Generation, Burt’s Bees, Yes To, and Tom’s Toothpaste. And I’m pretty sure your entire shopping list can be taken care of here too.

While you’re spending quality time with your family, does the dirty work for you. They stock, package and ship your “shopping cart” straight to your doorstep. It’s shopping made simple: Browse, Add to cart, Checkout, Pay, Done. Now go be the awesome parent you are and play!

I don’t think that I will ever buy the items offered on in the store ever again. It eliminates the hassle of shopping, fitting the items in my car, and unloading them when I get home along with 3 children.”

Why we love…

I love the idea of skipping weekly trips to the store. I have found many days where I miss a fun trip to the museum or super fun play date because I have to stock up on the family household essentials. With, you get every favorite product you adore under one virtual roof which makes shopping convenient.

And if you are like me, I am sure you normally spend over $49, which means you get free shipping. So now not only do you skip long lines, heavy bags and driving, you also get your goodies delivered to your door! Simply order by 6 p.m., and you will receive your package within 2 business days– such a sweet deal.

    Biggest challenge is getting my child to stop throwing things in the cart. She try’s to help but sometimes I buy things I did not realize I picked. However I like the help. I have taught her what toilet paper to pick out and such.

  2. christina obrien December 14, 2012 at 7:53 am #

    It is difficult to shop with my children because I am a label reader, and when they are pulling things off of the shelves and demanding my attention it is hard to focus. This is why i try to shop when the boys are in school 🙂

  3. Rachelle Gilmore December 14, 2012 at 8:03 am #

    My biggest challenge is shopping with little ones! They are always in such a rush and I like to take my time reading labels and finding the best prices.

  4. Pamela S December 14, 2012 at 8:31 am #

    Biggest challenge is avoiding the toys section of a store.

  5. Monica Waugh December 14, 2012 at 8:51 am #

    My biggest challenge is my 2 year old losing patience and losing his mind!

  6. kaceyjt December 14, 2012 at 9:22 am #

    No kid problems for me…just one ornery husband who loves to add things to the cart!

  7. anna December 14, 2012 at 9:38 am #

    shopping with a 5 month old who is wide awake can be a challenge….and here in nyc the shop that starts with a “t” is not easy to get to!

  8. Ash December 14, 2012 at 10:38 am #

    I just spent three hours running errands with a tired toddler yesterday, so the difficulties of shopping with children are fresh in my mind 🙂 He hates riding in the shopping cart, greatly prefers to run around the store aimlessly (which we rarely actually have time for), and barely tolerates being held as long as he can “help” push the cart. This means I hold him awkwardly with my right arm so he can lead forward and have his hands on the handle while I try to push and maneuver the loaded cart with my left hand. It’s far from easy. Needless to say, sounds like a fantastic idea!!!

    The biggest challenge is trying to compare prices-usually I just grab what I can and get out!

    trying to lug a huge diaper bag, and 3month old around on 2 sprained ankles that havent healed even though its been 6 months. being able to shop online and get trusted brands sounds wonderful

    Being a mom is a full time job and taking them to town with me is double duty well tripple if I have both of them. I try and remember what I’m suppose to be buying and one is hitting the other and that in us yelling or one is singing Taylor Swift and the other Justin Moore or maybe it’s a song from school. I just forget everything. Then they are grabbing items putting it in the buggy and I’m not getting it out and eventually paying for 2 packs of Lysol and 3 cans of air fresher and 2 things of dawn dish soap because I’m a human dishwasher. Plus gain washing powders because my son says if he doesn’t have it he won’t sleep alone. All power to him he can have his gain to sleep alone in his own bed just not all 3 or 4 kinds he adds in the buggy because he was smelling th and forgot to put them back on shelf. Shopping online is easier even with buying clothing items lol. Less hassle no gas money and it comes directly to my front door and no kids fighting yay!!!

    My biggest challenge is trying to keep my kids from going all over the place. My 1 year old hates sitting in a cart for too long. My 7 year old wants to play with everything and my 12 year old has ADHD and likes to play and touch everything.

  18. Arianna Carlson December 15, 2012 at 5:58 am #

    Biggest challenge for my our family is that we can’t find everything we need at one store so we spend a lot of time running around from store to store.

    The hardest thing for me , is trying to find a product that will be affordable , and not to harsh on the kids skin .

  20. Cassie December 15, 2012 at 1:08 pm #

    Biggest challenge is dealing with the “I want this! I want that!” the entire trip. It isn’t just toys – it’s anything, toilet paper, a towel, anything we don’t need. I hate having to continually explain why we don’t need EVERY THING IN THE STORE.

  21. Dorothy December 15, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    Biggest challenge shopping with kids is keeping tabs on them

  22. Lisa Flynn December 15, 2012 at 6:48 pm #

    My biggest challange is my kids get the “gimmies”. And they all want to run in different directions!

  23. Mary S. December 15, 2012 at 7:14 pm #

    My biggest challenge is my daughter gets one buggy I get another. She gets what she wants I get what I want. Somehow it never fails we always end up with at least 6 items a like not to mention we live together! Now if grands are with us we have give me this being said more times than I need or I want!

  24. Sue S. December 15, 2012 at 7:17 pm #

    Mine would have to be trying to price match with the kids trying to be chatty Kathy and telling me something and me completely forgetting everything on where it’s on sale and how much luckily I have the iPhone and it now keeps up with all the sale papers I need and I can be like this was this at this place and here is the add. It’s easier and lots less hassle!

  25. Lucille December 15, 2012 at 7:18 pm #

    The phone ringing, kids fighting over who done what, if I don’t make list I don’t get half of what I went after.

  26. Lori L December 15, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

    Like any other 3-year old, my son loves to ask, “Why?” When we are shopping for items that are not easily identified or understood by my son, like floor cleaner or kitchen sponges, he asks a million questions. It is most challenging for me to make it through the inquisition without losing my cool.

  27. Becca T December 17, 2012 at 7:27 am #

    Woo hoo. I did both the bonus entry protocals. Its a gold star kind of day. I love shopping with my kids but not when I have dreams of efficency or getting my entire list. My ease towards distraction and their zeal for life make for a bad combo crusinf the aisles. Help me, help myself.

  28. Amy K. December 17, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

  34. Alyssa R December 18, 2012 at 11:22 am #

    The biggest challenge for me is keeping my son in the same isle as me when I am trying to find the best deal! Find myself promising a visit to the toy area… (sigh)

    It is difficult to shop with my children because I have an unmedicated six year old with ADHD and twin daughters who antagonize him often times on purpose. PLus, my only opportunity to go is after school when they are all tired and moody.

    Was just telling my husband a few days ago that I wish I could do all my grocery, etc shopping online! its not something I enjoy with a 2 yr old who hates the cart, and an infant who may or may not be content. I’m so glad I found!

  46. Amy R. December 21, 2012 at 6:32 am #

    I liked them on Facebook & visited their site!
    Hmm, I don’t have kids yet, but what I’ve noticed when shopping with my family friend & her children is that they always want something & it’s difficult to leave the store without a bunch of toys in tow!

  51. Maryann D. December 21, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    The biggest challenge is not letting the children distract me while I shop so I can get done quicker.
