Thrive Market Giveaway!

I’ve recently discovered Thrive Market, and am happy to see such a place popping up online! It has a product lineup best compared to Whole Foods, with prices and a membership setup similar to Costco (price 25-50% off retail). They also aim to make “healthy living easy and affordable for everyone”, and for every membership purchased, one is given to a low-income family.

And for the readers here – they are generously giving one year membership for free, a $59.95 value! Enter for the chance to have access all year to 25-50% off your favorite organic and natural market items.

I love shopping at my local health food store, but love online shopping even more…so I felt right at home here. I did a little research for you via an order thanks to the kind folks at Thrive and I am really excited to report how wonderful my experience was!FullSizeRender (2)

First of all, the website is gorgeous. I love clean, simple lines and this site balances a full inventory with a surprisingly clean, minimal interface. Easy to navigate and shop – which makes the process faster and much easier than in-store shopping.

The product lineup is pretty extensive. I found all of my favorite teas, baking ingredients/dry goods, snack bars and supplements. There are a few things I may still have to go to my local health food store, like refrigerated probiotics.

Oh – and an important feature – once you have an account, your shopping cart syncs across devices! I love this since I often pause and pick back up later on my iPad.


They have my favorite tea for almost 1/2 price! I actually have paid even more than the retail price they list for it – bad!

A few of my favorites…organic_Moroccan_Mint_tea_-_Thrive_Market

Moroccan Mint Tea
Cocoa Chewy Bars
Pomegranate Rose Hip Argan Oil
Raw Honey
Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar

 

 

 

PROS
great selection
easy checkout (really, really easy)
beautiful site
great mission
get your organic goods while catching up on Scandal
membership prices

CONS
still get your refrigerated items at the store
shipping is average – not fast, not slow
can’t wait for even more products available

So, you can save money while eating clean, healthy foods. And, especially if you live in an area where organic foods are hard to find, Thrive Market is an essential site to check out! I am happy to share the below giveaway. Good luck!

Em Vest #cookieskids

I turned the heat up this week. No doubt about it, Winter is coming! And, with the cold weather comes requests for all things warm: footie pajamas, robes, coats, gloves, scarves, socks, and boots.

This year, I’m getting smarter. I quickly added to my daughter’s Winter wardrobe with some new things from Cookies Kids online store.

I have shopped online at Cookies Kids before and really like the great deals I find for kids clothes and shoes on there. I especially like getting name brands I love at a good price.

For fun, I decided to let Em help me choose some new Winter pieces for her wardrobe. She quickly took over! She is very concerned with developing her own kid style right now, so I laughed at let her go to it. She browsed all over the site and found one item she just HAD to have.

I laughed when she showed me and tried to redirect her to an item she could wear more often like one of the Land’s End hats, but her heart was set on this snuggly vest. You can see our whole shopping experience in my google+ album.

So, we clicked on the vest, and then used the Alva size option that popped up to figure out her size for this item. I liked that option, It asked for specific information that really made me feel we were choosing the right size.

After that, we keep clicking around, trying to decide between some gloves or a jacket or hat.

I found a beautiful, super warm looking pair of North Face gloves and she was delighted to find they came in purple, which matches her current coat. So we were set.

It is so fun to browse all the categories online and find some special things. Cookies Kids has all sorts of children’s items, with many brand names at a low cost. I thought the store was just online, but actually Cookies Kids have 7 stores in the NYC area in Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica as well as online at CookiesKids.com. In fact, they are celebrating 40 years in business this year.

I was glad I let her help shop, she was so happy and her choice ended up being an excellent one! The vest is so soft and warm and absolutely adorable. The gloves fit well and seem very warm and sturdy, so I’m pleased with those as well. I think she enjoyed her Winter Fashion shopping!

Just a great experience again! And I get to share a coupon just for my readers here at Faith, Family and Fun.

Heather —  August 30, 2012

I have a homeschool post coming up, but I have been busy playing with Polyvore and trying to imagine a lovely bridesmaid look for my baby sister’s wedding. What do you think? I have the dress! I will need a nice wrap though, so still looking for that.

Many of you may be familiar with CSN Stores. I find their 200+ sites so fun to browse. With so many items, I could browse the site all day! I do like how they have so many ways to narrow down your searches and when I  price a particular item, I can often find a great sale, with prices less than at my local stores, even with shipping.

As we head into the holidays, I think this is a good spot to check for gifts or items to spruce up your home for company. Currently, they are promoting their barstools. You can take a look. For fun, I sorted by high to low price and found the one above. The one above is my favorite-can you believe that is a barstool? Anyway, they have tons of choices which could come in handy for extra holiday seating!

I disclose.  CSN will provide me with a Gift Code to share in the Fit Mommy Prize Pack!
