Joe Six Pack


I recently came across the best thing ever offered by Fresh Direct. If you don't know it, Fresh Direct is a grocery delivery service in New York that I think it pretty great. Great for all those things you don't want to carry up 6 flights of stairs or 3 avenues across. Great for the fact that their prices are better than the stores! And exceptional for what I just found. They call it Joe Six Pack and it's their choice of six mix and match bottles of beer out of their inventory. It's only $4.99! And they gave me good beer! I can't get a six pack of Old English in this city for $4.99! The only unfortunate part is that there's a limit of four.
One more great thing I found is this Zoya nail polish exchange. First of all their nail polish doesn't contain toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor. I've been trying hard lately to find health/beauty product with less chemicals in them, so this is right up my alley. Of course, I'm always skeptical on how well they'll work. Sometimes you just need a chemical to do the job correctly. However, in the case of Zoya's nail polish, you really don't! Went on like a dream and I've gone 4 days so far without a chip. The best part is that they're having a nail polish exchange right now through the end of April. You send them at least 6 bottles of old/used nail polish you don't want and they'll send you the equal amount of Zoya polish back. You pick the colors and send in the form along with $3/bottle that you're ordering/exchanging. $3 bottles of nail polish sans the usual slew of chemicals?! I love it!

I love that idea for the nailpoilsh. The only thing I'm thinking is - you send them your old nailpolish - so you pay shipping to get rid of it - and they what - send you that many bottles back - or the 'amount' equal to what you had left in your yucky bottles? So lets say that equaled one full bottle - so you pay the shipping, are out your old fav. colors and pay and extra $3 for shipping. Lol - sounds like it may be cheaper to go to the store - no?

But WOW on the price for the beer!

Hahaha, yes, you are out the cost of the shipping to them. For me, I had a lot of old nail polish I was holding onto for no reason. Thinking I'd use it, but knowing that it was not in the best condition (just old, you know - it gets sticky), so I wasn't parting with anything.
