Comparison shop for healthy products. While I am a big fan of buying as much as possible at the farmers market, there are some things – such as toiletries and household items that you simply can’t find there (at least not at mine). When you do have to buy these items (let’s face it, there’s at least something every week), make sure that you’re buying healthy options for the lowest price. To do that, carve out 30 minutes each week to browse the circulars of your local stores and to look online. My family lives by our Amazon Prime membership because we can buy many healthy products in larger sizes than what you can find at the grocery or big box store and often at cheaper prices – especially if you can plan ahead and choose the cheapest option that may take longer to deliver. There are also other online sites such as Thrive Market that offer good deals on healthy products and local co-ops that do as well. You simply have to know what your options are and set aside regular time each week to look for the best deals. While this may take a little more time and effort, it will pay off in the long run by saving your money and hopefully your health.
