When we make the switch to eating and living clean many of us are in for a jaw dropping reality that this lifestyle comes with a price tag. Fortunately, cooking at home, CSA boxes, and famers markets make it more affordable but still some items we are forced to pay a premium. Well, today I have the solution for those price tag woes. A new online marketplace, called Thrive Market is taking of the sting out of healthy living.
They are essentially like a Costco but for all-natural and organic foods and products. The average discount is between 25-50% off what you would find in a brick and mortar store. Usually lower than Amazon and Vitacost, too.
Thrive Market is making wholesome nourishing foods affordable for any budget….sticker unshocked
The Low Down
Thrive Market is a membership only store, for about $5 a month you can gain entry. The membership is charged on a yearly basis, so $59.95 annually. They offer free shipping on all orders over $49 dollars. Plus you can feel good about your membership cost as with their Thrive Gives program for each new paid membership they donate a free membership to a low income American family in need.
Thrive Market doesn’t skimp when it comes to bands either, they carry the best of the best natural brands. Some of my favorites are the Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil, Real Salt, and The New Primal Grass Fed Beef Jerky. They have a wide selection of categories to shop from including cooking, healthy snacks, supplements, bath, baby, beauty, and home goods. It is quickly becoming my go to store for many of my families daily necessities.
Something else I find helpful over at Thrive Market is loads of search filters. They have over 90 actually, and include subjects like non-gmo, paleo, raw, and gluten free. Their eye catching website and simple filter buttons make it much easier than a trip to the grocery store. No lines, parking wars, or grouchy checkers. Thrive Market has cut down grocery store time so I can have more family time. Worth every penny of the $60 membership.
So if you are like me you want to see the nitty gritty…the price for pice breakdown of how much cash you will be saving. I’ve picked a few random samples for us…honestly these were the first three products I picked to compare and I was even shocked that they all were the best price on Thrive Market.

A Little Incentive
So, I know memberships are scary. Especially when you are paying for a year in advance…so many unknowns and what ifs. $60 is a lot to shell out, which is why Clean's the New Black readers get a free 2 month membership when you sign up (can be cancelled at any time.) The membership starts when you make your first purchase so feel free to sign up today, look around at the amazing prices, and purchase when you feel ready…no rushing…no pressure.
And to sweeten the deal even more you will also get 25% off your first order! Click here to check Thrive Market out.
With free shipping on orders over $49 dollars and a $5/month membership fee, if you purchase natural products on a regular basis theres no question you won’t save by shopping Thrive Market. The savings I made on my first purchase paid for the membership fee all in one go. Their packaging may be recycled but the idea is not. For the first time consumers have access to healthy and natural alternatives to conventional products at the same or often lower prices. Thrive Market is my new jam, will it be yours?
