it’s january, everyone is watching tidying up with marie kondo on netflix, and i’ve made one too many jokes about konmari-ing myself within one inch of existence over here. but seriously, the abundance of stuff that comes into our house during the holiday season is enough to make my head spin. i’ve been sorting and organizing and donating as much as i can, just trying to get things to a simpler place so that we’re not all swimming in a sea of junk.
and you wanna know something that always sparks joy for me? pretty packaging. there, i said it haha. but it’s not just about pretty packaging! i really am into substance, and i want both in equal measure. i was introduced to public goods a few months ago, and am head-over-heels for not only the simple design, but their eco-conscious, budget-friendly selection.
they sent me this beautiful sampler of body and skincare products including the cutest refillable glass dental floss dispenser, a classic wood-handled razor, and a little tin of mints for my handbag. these drew me in, but what really kept me was their selection of things like reusable produce bags, eco-friendly cleaners, biodegradable trash bags… they even have hand and bath towels!
the way it works is that it’s a direct-to-consumer subscription service, so with an annual membership (think: costco) you’re able to shop for whatever you need in both personal and home goods without any of the usual retail markups. the products have safe ingredients and clean packaging, perfect for your minimalist home goals in 2019.
