The Big Easy
A new app for bulk shopping
The shoebox apartment of your earliest years in the city has (mercifully) given way to more expansive digs. Now your entire pantry is begging to be filled with giant rolls of paper towels, and you?ve even caught yourself spending more than a few Saturdays at Costco.
Skip the acres of asphalt and that disturbing coffin department as you order the big stuff on Boxed, a new wholesale shopping app.
We snuggled up on the couch with our iPhone (Boxed is coming soon to Android) to browse the items we can?t live without. Five hundred Ziploc sandwich bags for $10? A household necessity. A 56-ounce bag of Hershey?s Kisses for $14? ?Tis the season.
There?s no membership fee to get in on the savings, and whenever you spend more than $75, delivery is free. (Use the code ?BOXED1? for free delivery on your first order no matter the total.)
What a relief: You can still spend Saturday watching Real Housewives reruns instead of buying the Ford Expedition you?d need for those king-size boxes of cereal.
