Does eating organic food have to break the bank? Heck no!
Now I’m not going to deny it: generally speaking, eating real, organic food is more expensive because it costs more to produce and organic farmers don’t receive the generous subsidies granted to large agribusinesses.
I started eating a real food, organic diet just after I graduated college. Bad timing, right? I mean I was BROKE. But my health was a priority for me, and so I splurged at the grocery store while pinching my pennies in other areas.
Not long after, I realized I could save money by buying all of my dry goods at a discount online and then just buying produce, eggs, dairy, fish, and meat at the grocery store. I did this mostly through Amazon and Vitacost, which remain 2 of my favorite resources even with this cool new kid on the block…
Thrive Market is my newest and favorite way to save BIG on health foods, supplements, and so much more.
It’s an online wholesale club for health foods and natural products. They sell all sorts of healthy foods (organic, gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian) as well as supplements, natural skincare products, and non-toxic home cleaning products, all at 20-50% off retail price.
And right now, they’re offering new members an extra 15% off their first purchase + a free jar of 15 oz certified organic virgin coconut oil ($8 value).
Check out what this savings looks like:
|Health Food Store||Amazon||Thrive Market (with 15% discount)|

Like other wholesale clubs, there is an annual membership fee of $59, which winds up being about $5 a month — which is clearly so worth it. But as a new member, you will get a 1 month free trial and can cancel your membership at anytime (so if you cancel within that first month, you will not be charged the annual fee). So 1 month for free + 15% off your total order on top of their already amazing prices + a free jar of 15 oz certified organic virgin coconut oil ($8 value)!
