Saving Money & Time – Thrive Market

 

If you’re like me you know that eating healthy and clean isn’t always easy… in fact, more times than not it requires extra work not to mention extra money. Well, there’s a new player in town and I cannot wait to share with you one of my newest finds – Thrive Market!

What is Thrive Market?

Thrive Market is like Costco or Sam’s Club where you pay an annual fee $59 (less than $5 a month) but it immediately gets way better than your normal warehouse club! Thrive Market offers over 4,000 natural, organic, non-GMO and non-toxic products at wholesale prices. (You’re getting Costco prices for Whole Foods products!) Then to sweeten the pot even more, for every paying membership, Thrive Market donates a free membership to a low-income American family. Through their initiative Thrive Gives, Thrive Market is working to achieve their social mission of making healthy food accessible to everyone! Now that’s something I can support!

I also feel good knowing that Thrive Market is a carbon neutral company (check out carbonfund.org for more info) and all their packaging and shipping materials are recycled. Plus, they offer free shipping with $49+. So now, not only do I save money but I also save my time getting my groceries delivered straight to my door.

Since I signed up for Thrive Market a few months ago, I’ve placed a monthly order and already saved over $200. I price checked Thrive Market items both at my regular grocery store and online at Amazon and every time Thrive Market offered the exact same product at a cheaper price. Depending on the product, you can expect to save anywhere from 25-50% off retail prices.

Some of my favorite products include:

Thrive Market Ghee – $9.95 

I’ve recently drastically limited my dairy intake. (If I said absolutely no dairy, I’d be lying but I’m trying!) and I LOVE this butter substitution. From toast to greasing a pan, I haven’t used this once and missed my old butter.

Sir Kensington’s Dijon Mustard – $4.95
hmmmm hello Paris withdrawals! Seriously, when were at Disneyland Paris, I was hoarding mustard packages to bring home. #noshame This mustard is as close to the real deal as it gets (cue perfect nose sting) and only has real ingredients ( that you can pronounce!

Thrive Market Organic Tuscan Pepper Pasta Sauce – $4.95
I’m sending a trend here with missing my Europe vacation, but holy Italy flashbacks! At a comparable price point to grocery store sauces but with WAY LESS chemically foreign ingredients, this organic sauce is my new go to. They also have tomato basil, marinara, and roasted garlic sauces. They’re all equally delicious and there’s just something awesome about being able to read all the ingredients on a label – organic whole peeled tomatoes, organic fresh onions, organic black pepper, sea salt…you get the point.

Another fun bonus is that Thrive Market always has a free gift when you spend $59 or more. I love sampling some new products that I might not have normally. (currently waiting for my fatworks premium tallow -cooking oil- to come!)

Just like you get excited to tell someone where you got a great outfit (shout out to all the girls that do!) when I found out that Thrive Market had an affiliate program, I couldn’t wait to partner with such an amazing company and tell all my friends (aka you!), so I’ve got a special offer for and then monday readers (both new and existing Thrive Market customers) get 6 FREE Primal Kitchen Dark Chocolate Almond Bars (value $14.95) with any purchase of $29 or more!

These bars have quickly become one of my new favorite grab & go snacks. They’re filled with collagen, fiber, and 15 grams of protein while being grain and dairy free!

Now for the (even more) fun part!

I can’t say enough about how much I’m enjoying Thrive Market and hope you all will at least check out the FREE 30-day trial you can get here! Did I mention that you also get 15% off your first purchase?! I know seriously, what do you have to lose?

(The answer is absolutely nothing – Thrive Market’s customer service is AMAZING and with their “Happiness Guarantee” if you don’t love a product for any reason, you can return it for a full refund!)

Let me know your favorite products and how much money you’re saving!
Cheers to healthier (& easier) living!
