I know what you mean, In Ghana clay is so cheap, I often think if I lived there I would eat clay all the time. Be careful though, when you have loads, you just want to eat it all the time, and sometimes eat it more than food. Well I do anyway lol!

I think I'm due another visit myself, it is so easy to get clay there!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I wanted to make you guys aware that I have launched a website where you can now get my clay product at lower costs. By eliminating the fees I have to pay to amazon, I was able to cut the price per bag, and to celebrate the launch of the website, I am offering offering special additional discounts for a limited time. Also, when ordering multiple bags through our site, you are not charged multiple shipping costs like you would be on Amazon...so there's even more savings to you!
Check out www.goodoledirt.com and let me know what you think!
Oh yeah, international orders can be made on this site as well!

The international shipping costs are such a turn off though. Paying 5 times the amount of the actual product in shipping!!? Which doubles after 2 bags.

At the Paypal stage the discount does not reflect the amount of bags bought, for eg you enter 3 bags @$6.99, the discount for new price ($5.24) should come to $5.25 for 3 bags, it stays stuck @$1.75 for 1 bag. If you could look into this Wanda. Thks.

Wanda your clay looks so good Im gonna give it a try. I have been out of clay since After Christmas with all the rain in Texas all the construction site are flooded ... I'm scared to order the nzu clay even though it looks so good,because of the Deadly Toxic of lead & Arcnic that the Web report in Nzu (calsbar/chalk). Ghana Clay egg shape you can't order online any where .Soul Sista is still out of Ghana clay I think.

Hey Guys! I made a boo boo...the discount wasnt multiplying on the site...Its fixed now for domestic orders, still working on International. For now, if you want to place a domestic order you can email support@goodoledirt.com, and I will get you taken care of...sorry about the international shipping costs guys, I think that plus the customs process is probably why a lot of sites just dont offer it at all ;(

I know a lady in Atlanta that will ship the clay to your house when you call her and order it on the phone. Her lowest price is $1.99 highest $2.99. She sells the type from West Africa.

Just checked out Wanda's website. The prices are very reasonable and the dirt looks so good. Even the pic with just the crumbs....thinking about ordering to give it a try. Still eating my cornstarch just not as often as before. I actually still have the same box I purchased a month ago. To me that's progress.
