Health on a Budget: Thrive Market

thrive market

I always say things like “I can’t wait until I can afford to do all my grocery shopping at Whole Foods” or “I wish eating healthy wasn’t so freaking expensive.”

Well, I’m not going to say these problems have totally been solved, but I am getting there! I recently signed up for Thrive Market, an online retailer that sells organic and natural foods and products. So what makes Thrive different from a place like Whole Foods? The site offers the items at wholesale prices, and you pay a yearly fee of $60 to access them.

I discovered Thrive less than two weeks ago through an Instagram ad. Honestly, I never click on Instagram ads. They’re usually kind of weird and sketchy. But this one offered me a free jar of Justin’s Almond Butter for free, I’d just have to pay $1.95 for shipping. I’ve always wanted to try almond butter, but I’ve never been able to get myself to pay for it since it’s so expensive. This was the perfect opportunity!

So I clicked, but instead of just checking out right away, I figured I might as well explore the site since I would be paying for shipping anyway. Immediately I saw products I already love – Larabars, Sunwarrior Protein Powder, coconut oil, Snapea Crisps and more! I also saw products I’ve always wanted to try but never did because of the sticker shock. They have everything from snacks and spices to soaps and baby wipes.

Here’s a photo of what I ended up buying during my first time on the site:

All of this cost me less than $30!

You’re probably thinking I’m biased in saying all this, but let me explain that Thrive did not reach out to me. I actually reached out to them because I was so in love with the site right off the bat. I asked them if they had an affiliate program, and they do! So I’m now able to give you guys special offers! And no, I don’t get my membership for free. This is all 100% my own doing.

Thrive gives everyone who signs up a 30-day free trial. If I’m being perfectly honest, I had planned on getting the free trial and then canceling. I don’t exactly have the most secure bank account, after all. But then I thought about it. I saved $45 in one order. And if I break it up monthly, it’s significantly less than my Netflix membership.

You can search for products by your values, like paleo, gluten-free, vegan, raw and more.

And the best part?!

Every single paid membership is matched with a free membership for a low-income American family.

Now that is something I can stand behind.

Ok, so now that I sound like a weird, overly excited Thrive groupie, go sign up for your free month HERE now!

Colorfully (and Organically) Yours,
