I know one topic that comes up again and again in the frugal community is how to save money on natural or organic products.
It’s difficult forking out extra cash for organic produce or a new organic brand because it is more expensive.
One day at Wegmans, I was grabbing a gallon of milk and the lady next to me said she lived on a local farm and supplied the milk for Wegmans.
She told me that the milk in the “normal” 2 gallon jug, and the milk in the “organic” jug came from the same place!! She says that buying organic is a total rip off and they didn’t use antibiotics on any of their cows – but Wegmans is making more money with the organic label.
Hmmm….so that makes me think – do we really know, without a doubt, that when we buy something “natural” or “organic” that it truly is different and better than what we would normally buy – and that it should be priced higher?
I don’t have all of the answers, but when I find a great price on a natural or organic product, I get it for sure. So that is what I wanted to share with you today.
As a mom, I get more concerned about safer products for my kids. I recently found a brand of natural kids body wash that is the cheapest of other “natural” kids body washes that you’d find at Wegmans.
I took a snap shot of a few “natural” brands of kids body wash at Wegmans with prices – all listed below:
Aveeno Baby Body Wash, 18 fl oz – $8.99 or $0.49 per ounce
Babyganics Bubble Bath, 17 fl oz – $7.99 or $0.47 per ounce
Cetaphil Baby Wash & Shampoo, 7.8 fl oz – $5.49 or $0.70 per ounce
Burt’s Bees Baby Shampoo, 12 fl oz – $8.99 or $0.75 per ounce
Jason Kids Only Shampoo, 8 fl oz – $7.49 or $0.94 per ounce.
Koala Kids Tear Free Shampoo, 11 oz for $4.99 or $0.45 per ounce (preferred customer price.). This one WINS as the CHEAPEST!!! Plus it smells just flat out amazing!
This kids body wash is not found in Wegmans.
I am a preferred customer at Melaleuca and bought this on their site. I have been a customer for a few months now and I’m totally loving their products!
This is just one of many that me and my family love. I also love that this is a company that offers safer products – that is not way more expensive than what you would already be paying.
In order to shop for Melaleuca products, you need to sign up to be a preferred customer, and need to do so through another Melaleuca customer.
Once you get your own personal online account set up – you just order on your own when you want – and you don’t need to rely on a product distributor to pay or deliver your products.
Let me know by leaving a comment or sending me an e-mail if you are interested in learning more and I can give you all of the specifics of how the company works and get you set up.
Melaleuca also has a great line of green home cleaning products – you can read about my favorite one OVER HERE!
