Ten Thousand Villages Handmade Terra Cotta Foot Scrubber
Why I chose this?
I have never seen one of these. They don’t wear out and I have a feeling it will kick my Ped-Egg Pro’s butt. It is also all natural and handmade! Other places charge $8+ for similar terra cotta scrubbers, so though it was not on sale it was still a great deal.

Ten Thousand Villages Handmade Natural Allo Tote
Why I chose this?
I went back and forth on whether to get this or not. I never heard of Allo before and found the process intriguing. I love the fact it is all natural of course! It is large and I can see myself using it for a day at the beach, shopping or a weekend trip. It’s versatile, simple and beautiful. Not to mention a great deal!

Let’s break down how good of a deal this was.

Ten Thousand Villages Deal

Regular Price Total ($142) w/ Shipping ($8.50) + Taxes (7.75% for NC): $161.50

Sales + Clearance Price Total: $37
Extra 10% Discount: -$3.70
Taxes: $2.58
Shipping Special: FREE (Normally $8.50 for this same order)

Total Price: $35.88

Total Saved: 77.78%

Unfortunately, I found out about this deal last minute… So free shipping and the extra 10% are not available. So if you where to get the same exact order as me you would pay about $48 (assuming your state/country tax is the same as mine 7.75%), which would be a still an awesome 70% savings! Their normal shipping rates (e.g. UPS Ground start at $5.50) which is insanely reasonable! I will keep an eye out for new discount codes and free shipping deals, etc. and let you know as soon as I find out about them.

The above I got is just a small sample as to what is available at Ten Thousand Villages, click here now and check it out. They have items from $1 and up and something for everyone to love. Come back and let me know what you picked out!

I will be sure to write a review once they come in!


May Yahuwah bless you and keep you & yours!
