I've lived here my whole life old navy gymboree crazy 8 gap all ship cheap/free

Shipping out or in 13 ounce or less first class is best 13 ounce or more fit it in a flat rate box.

Amazon ships pretty reasonably I have the upgraded membership for free shipping and you can buy from target through there but you can't do any of the auto subscribe stuff

Like previous poster mentioned everyone will ship here for a price

I actually think Fred Meyer is fantastic. We are on our way back to the bush. It's the only way to get milk, cheese, fresh-ish eggs, and half frozen produce. Getting produce shipped has never gone well for us so we have learned to use lots of purees in food. My best suggestion is to get a family member to ship you items. We moved through USPS and have family sending us the health foods we can't get anywhere else through USPS as well.
I will so miss Starbucks though.

Ok how on earth do you get Prime to ship for free?!? I have Amazon Prime and don't get the free shipping unless its an item that has super saver shipping.

Lots if baby stores won't ship even for extra fees..,like diapers.com etc won't ship at all.

We had Full Circle Farms but had a box of rotten stuff so we quit. We are starting with the Glacier Valley soon.

It takes lots of looking to find a good shipping price. I order my carseats way in advance and when we or family/friends come for a visit they bring it on the plane (free shipping). You can see if there is an Azure Standard buying group there. Just call Azure. You can get a great deal on food. Co-ops are also a good way to get stuff.

IDK if someone has mentioned it but Amazon's Free Super Saver Shipping is amazing! We bought a 15 lb bag of brown rice, 6 things of juice, canned fruit and veggies, oatmeal, and more all for free shipping. You don't have to have a special account or anything just search for what you want and on the side bar to the left click on the Free Super Saver Shipping option and it will bring up everything that will ship free. We saved about $160 and have enough dry goods for a few months! Awesome

I get stuff from Amazon too, but not much. I really wish we had an Ikea here. Or that they shipped for cheap
