When I first started using coupons, I happily bought whatever foods & products I could get for the cheapest possible price. I saved a LOT of money on groceries, but our food choices were admittedly not always the best. Over the years I have tried to find a balance between saving money on groceries and healthy eating, and while I still use a lot of coupons, I also have also tried to find healthy alternatives.
About a year ago I discovered a wonderful website called Vitacost which sells a huge variety of natural, organic, vegetarian, & gluten free products at great discounts. They carry everything from food & vitamins to personal care items & household products, and their prices are awesome.
Even better, new customers can get a $10 credit when you sign up through this link only. Your credit can be used on absolutely ANYTHING. Shipping is a flat $4.99, which means you can score some pretty great deals on things you might need. Once you sign up, your credit will be emailed to you within about 10 minutes. You can then use the code to take $10 off any purchase.
Here are a few examples of how you can use this credit:
- (1) – 0.5 oz bottle of Aura Cacia Lavender Essential Oil @ $7.07 (40% off retail price of $11.95)
- (1) – 0.5 oz bottle of Aura Cacia Eucalyptus Essential Oil @ $3.75 (37% off retail price of $5.99)

(Please Note: This is my referral link. The only way to get the $10 credit is to sign up through someone’s referral link. If you go directly to Vitacost.com to sign up without the link, there is no free credit given.)
