Erma Bombeck: The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and coming out with ONLY a loaf of bread are three-billion-to-one.
Recently, Marissa (the best-girl-on-earth) told us about a new shopping site for groceries, cosmetics, household products, makeup, baby clothes, and other items. All of their products are healthy and good-for-you. Thrive Market. Where else can you find ghee, kale crisp, and raw pecan butter, along with eye shadow and fermentation kits in the same place? (Except maybe Amazon, but this is better!)
At the time, the website was running a promotion: spend a lot of money, save a lot of money. And we did! I bought things I wouldn’t ordinarily buy (pine nuts are always so expensive!) and Marissa ended up buying lots of baby clothes and toiletries that she’s going to donate to a local women’s shelter.
Now, I’d like to introduce you to Thrive Market. It’s like Amazon, but healthier! Click on this link Thrive Market and save 25% on your first order and get free shipping. Plus, you get a 30-day free trial membership to try other products. Please feel free to share this link with friends too for more savings. If you refer a friend, you can save $25 on your next order.
A group of us recently chatted about grocery shopping in general. Many members of the group don’t even go to the store any more. They have everything they need delivered to their doorstep. This makes perfect sense, of course, when you live on the second floor and you’re having dog food delivered. Or a case of toilet paper. But I still enjoy going grocery shopping. Maybe it’s because I love using coupons.
I enjoy cutting out coupons from the Sunday paper. And once in a while, a coupon insert is thrown onto my driveway along with other local advertising. I keep promising myself I’m going to set aside the dollars I saved (shown at the bottom of my receipt) and put it in a piggy bank. Maybe pay for my next vacation? But no, instead, I’ll just settle for reducing the grand total of my shopping order. Now if only someone would put the groceries in my car, unload them from the car, and put everything away. That would be a red-letter day.
