Have you heard about Duane Reade’s new magazine, Happy and Healthy? On Saturday, I headed over to my local Duane Reade in Forest Hills, NY to pick up essentials and to check out their new Happy and Healthy Magazine with Taylor Swift on the cover. Featured is Ology, an new eco-friendly line of non-toxic cleaning products, toilet paper, paper towels, shampoos (for babies and adults). (Read More after the jump).
I checked out the magazine online before I went to the store – go here the whole thing online. Did you know there’s a Taylor Swift store in Duane Reade? My nieces upstate will be so excited to hear that! We like the Balance Rewards program, that can be used at Duane Reade and Walgreens (see my recent review). I keep my card stored virtually in my iPhone’s Passbook and they can scan it right from my phone!
As I walked in, I picked up the new Happy and Healthy Magazine. I was excited to check about Ology. A new eco-friendly line, it’s endorsed by Healthy Child, Healthy World. I can use paper towels that are 100% tree free and not feel guilty that I’m hurting the environment!
I also picked up some diapers for my toddler. At buy one, get one for 50% off, it was a good deal. I bought one for him and I planned to donate the other package.
I picked up presents for my children’s teachers (glad to get that off my To Do List!).
The Happy and Healthy Magazine had shown gift cards and I thought that would be a good present for their teachers. I chose Starbucks (because if they don’t like coffee, they can have hot cocoa and yummy treats.
I picked up some large trash bags to donate to my daughter’s school (they’re doing a drive for Hurricane Sandy and trash bags are one of the most requested items).
I was impressed by the produce and frozen food sections at Duane Reade. Because I am on the go with my kids constantly and don’t always remember to pack snacks, I look for healthy things I can buy. I would totally run into Duane Reade and pick up some of these delicious items, rather than get something unhealthy like fast food.
I saw lots of good choices, including local brands like Ronnybrook Drinkable Yogurt.
I headed for the checkout, after I picked up some more items.
$111 poorer, I left the store.
