shopping healthy on a budget! health & beauty haul!

If you know me at all, you know I have a slight obsession with shopping on Vitacost. These last few months though, we’ve needed to tighten things up with our budget, so I’ve had to commit to only shopping when we truly need things…and then committing to only purchasing what we truly need. Because Vitacost is a lot like Target…you go in for one thing, and a few hundred dollars later…your husband is texting you about the credit card statement.

I remind him though, that shopping is like therapy, and at least we’re not having to pay for both at the moment.
Sometimes it’s all about perspective!

But, the truth is shopping healthy doesn’t have to break the bank! So here’s just one way we have figured out how to shop healthy on a budget!

So, here’s our latest health and beauty order with some of our usuals, but quite a few new to me products as well. My hope in sharing is to inspire you to consider switching from maybe from your less healthy products to some healthier alternatives. And if you shop on Vitacost, you really are getting an incredible price compared to what you’d spend in a Health Food Store. (I promise I am not sponsored by Vitacost, nor do I get free products!)

One thing to keep in mind is that while I do my best to make good choices, I always stick to the 80/20 rule in life. We do our best 80% of the time, and the other 20…eh.

Remember to always first shop Vitacost through Ebates or Extrabux for extra cash back! I check both to see which is offering more cash back.
