I am really excited to attend this event not only to score SWAG, but to also learn more about healthier food choices and to network with other health-minded individuals.  There will be tons of samples as well as classes and presentations!  Check out the schedule here.

As a bonus, the event is being held in a beautiful location! The Del Mar Fairgrounds offer great views and are located within walking distance to the beach!  So snag a hotel and check out the sights after the Expo.  It would make for a pleasant weekend getaway!

  • Samples and Coupons!
  • Discounted items to purchase at the expo!

Thrive Market

So I finally decided to cash in on my free Thrive Market membership that I received through Blue Star Families (thanks again by the way).  It’s basically like a Whole Foods, but even more awesome because instead of having to drive allll the way to the store and wait in line with a bunch of other crunchy folks, you can just have everything delivered right to your door!  Who doesn’t like receiving packages?  It’s like Christmas everyday! And to make things even awesomer…the items are closer to wholeSALE prices rather than Whole Foods prices. Double boom.  Now, I will say that it is normally $59.95 per year for a membership, but it’s totally worth it because there are not only food items and baby items to choose from, but lots of health and beauty stuff too.  And did I mention that it’s all delivered to you?  Like you don’t actually have to leave your house…which is super amazing when you have tiny people that don’t always have patience when you are trying to compare prices or compare brands.  I will also note that you can cancel your membership at any point; however, a low-income family is sponsored with every membership.  See! There is good happening, too!  So here is what I received in my first package…

Sweet, right?!  Lemme break down what exactly came in the order and what I paid for everything.  Now again,  I did get a discount through Blue Star Families.  Check ’em out if you haven’t.   And this particular day, Thrive Market was running a free shipping promotion so I took advantage of that.  They were also giving free jars of coconut oil with first time orders so that wasn’t included in the final price.  They sometimes will include a different promotional gift with a first time order so be on the lookout for that so that you can maximize your savings.  And they also include a catalog with each order so you can take a looksee at some of the upcoming new items that are offered each season.  Okay here’s the breakdown…

So the grand total was $23.31!  Yes, that’s it!  Awesome stuff for a low price and it was delivered within a week.  Score.  And everything in the order has either been consumed or is currently being used so I would say that it is all baby/toddler approved.  Go checkout Thrive Market today and as they say, “thrive on!” 😉
