Products/services that I personally use, and highly recommend.
I rave about them all the time, so when I found out I could become an affiliate partner* with these two amazing companies, I jumped at the chance. Here's why:
Berkey Water Filter System: "Berkey filters started serving water filter customers in the late 1990's. We started as a small family operated business in a farming community just East of Pueblo, Colorado."
Why I love them: It's a small family business, they are eco friendly because the filters last years, and the quality is great! This is more than just another filter, it purifies water. You can learn more from the pros themselves.
My Berkey Water Filter is one of the few products I gush about, because admittedly, I'm a water snob. Ever since I was a little girl, my favorite thing to drink was water. As I've grown into a woman, this love of H2O has driven me to try a number of water filters. From what I have tried so far, Berkey Water Filter System is my preferred brand. Aside from all the great info on their site, this is what really sold me on it:
When I got my Berkey Light (we choose this one, but there are several options), I put it together in a few minutes. To ensure that it's water tight, you are supposed to put red dye in the top, and the water comes out clear below. I was shocked! Can it really remove red dye out of the water?
Yes. It. Can!
Red water above came out crystal clear below. It freakin filtered red dye! I felt like a little kid seeing a magic show for the first time. Mind Blown!
As far as I understand, you can take dirty river water, run it through this thing, and drink it... it's pretty spectacular! Ok, I'll stop gushing now. What can I say? I really love my water.
Thrive Market - "Thrive Market is the first socially conscious online store offering the world's best-selling natural and organic products at wholesale prices."
Why I love them: If Costco and Whole Foods had a love child, it would be Thrive Market. This company is providing access to natural, organic foods and products in food deserts where people have limited access to these goods. In a recent blog post, they shared how their mission has helped the Pine Ridge Reservation - one of the most impoverished communities in America and home of the Lakota Sioux Nation - gain access to healthier options. They, and others, benefit from the Thrive Gives one-for-one model, meaning that for every membership purchased, one is donated to a family in need.
Their customer service is awesome, and I've saved a ton of money on pantry staples, soaps/detergent, beauty products and more. If their social mission and discounted wholesome products don't impress you, maybe their free shipping policy will. Try it yourself risk free for the first month. At the very least, check them out.
As of Sept 2016, I've saved almost $1000 with Thrive ($981.74 to be exact). It really adds up in a year! Plus I save money on gas and kitty toys.
My Favorite Time saving products
Do you wish you had more time to read? I did too, and thanks to Audible, I now do. With audio books, you can listen while I drive, walk, or wash the dishes. I simply love it!
Books that used to take me months to read, I can now finish in a couple of weeks!
Try it out for 30 days. If you likes, it's only $14.95 per month for any book. ANY book.
Maybe you can't buy happiness, but thanks to modern technology, you can buy devices that buy back the most precious thing in today's busy world - your time! Sweeping was one of those things that took up 1-2 hours of my week, and now, it takes only 10-15 min (however long it takes me to pick up all the cats toys and put away shoes).
How much time do you spend sweeping/vacuuming your home? How would you feel if had that time to yourself instead?
