Boss ladies, I am really excited to share this shopping hack with you!

I’m not going to spend a lot of time touting the health benefits of organic or non-GMO foods and products. I want to cut to the chase and share how you can shop for healthy, organic products for yourself and your family and save up to 50-60% off what you’d pay in the stores or even on popular shopping sites like Amazon. No gimmicks and no catches. It’s boss lady-approved by yours truly, and you can start today.

Shopping for organic and non-GMO food and home products is challenging for a few reasons. One issue is access and availability, meaning that you might live in an area that simply does not have many stores that sell organic and/or healthy products. The other major issue is that shopping for these products can sometimes be cost prohibitive. Anyone who has ever shopped at Whole Foods knows exactly what I’m talking about. It tends to get very expensive very fast, and for most people it’s simply not sustainable and so they simply give up.

Amazon is one of my favorite shopping websites for the values and convenience, and until recently I was relying on Amazon to source some of the specialty products that I haven’t been able to find in the grocery store easily, or just to save myself a trip to the store since Amazon usually meets or beats the grocery store prices anyhow. For example, Amazon sells one of my absolute favorite beverages: Almond Breeze chocolate almond milk. It tastes amazing by itself and I love to put it in my coffee.

My local grocery store sells Almond Breeze for $3.69. On Amazon I can buy it for $2.69 but it’s not always eligible for Amazon Prime so I have to buy it in bulk in order to offset the $6 shipping charge. It’s hit or miss on whether or not I save any money.

Chocolate Almond Milk in Coffee = Super Yum!

Now I buy Almond Breeze for $1.39 or roughly 50% less!

This is actually a BIG deal because we go through one container per week, and that means we spend close to $140/year just on chocolate almond milk. With my new healthy shopping hack, we will only spend about $70/year. It’s the exact same product and size, but it’s half the price! And on top of that they deliver it right to my door so I save myself valuable shopping time, driving time, and gas too.

Think about all the other foods you buy and how this kind of savings adds up… I’ve managed to save an average of 50% on this as well as my other favorite healthy yummies (hello, a whole pound of PB2 for $7.47!) thanks to the shopping hacks I discovered with a wonderful new website called Green PolkaDot Box.

    Loving the comparison between the Amazon and Green Polka Dot! Amazon is usually my go to, but I forget there are other lower cost options out there. Thanks for the hook up 🙂
