Whew. It’s been super hot where I live. Over 100 degrees!?
We got our monthly electric bill from this past month when the temperature was “only” in the 90s, and it was ummm…way too high…
So, I’ve turned the A/C down a few degrees and now I’m on a hunt for savings. Gotta offset the gas and electric bills somehow.
Well, I just found out about some more great deals (some of which expire soon) so I’m hurrying to write a quick post in order to share them all with you and I hope they help ease the strain on your pocketbooks as well!
Free Shipping and Sales at Tropical Traditions
First of all, Tropical Traditions has a FREE SHIPPING offer now through midnight on July 9, 2012. This is a great thing because a lot of their products are fairly heavy and shipping really ads up!
I use Tropical Traditions’ Expeller Pressed Coconut oil all the time. It is very reasonable and has no coconutty taste or flavor so it is perfect if you want the health benefits of coconut oil without the added flavor and smell.
We personally love the taste and smell of coconut so I also use organic coconut oil, but especially when I am making a new recipe and don’t want to spend a fortune on something that might not turn out right, I’ll opt for the Expeller Pressed Oil.
Tropical Traditions always has good sales on something, but currently they have a sale on one of my favorite products, coconut flour.
You can get 4.4 lbs for $19.99 which is $4.53 per pound. With free shipping, that’s a great deal!
(If you really want to stock up and save, you can join their Healthy Buyers Club and purchase 22 pounds of coconut flour for $77.70 which is $3.53 per pound.) That only makes sense if you are going to be purchasing from them all year, but I do .
We used to eat a lot of grains, so coconut flour wasn’t really on my radar, but we’ve been moving a little more in the “grain free direction” so coconut flour and almond flours have become more of a staple.
If you’re a new customer you get a nice informational book about coconut oil that also includes recipes!
Vitacost still has some great deals going on. If you stocked up before but wanted more than the 6 item limit, here’s your chance to grab some more.
Here are the deals that most interest me this week:
- Kirk’s Castille Soap - 4 oz bar – $.97 This soap is all natural.
- Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta, Spaghetti Style – 16 oz only $2.29 – This pasta is great. And whole grain. It’s over $4 at our local health food store.
- PB8 Probiotic. I used to use this brand – it’s nice because it’s stable at room temp. Just $9.99 for 120 capsules.
- Source Naturals Essential Enzymes - I haven’t tried this brand, but I think digestive enzymes are a must for most everyone and Source Naturals is a well respected brand. Just $12.99 for 240 capsules.
- Country Life Vitamin D3 - $5.84 for 200 softgels. There’s a lot of news about how important D3 is and how many folks are deficient. A little time in the sun helps but especially in the winter you most likely need to supplement. D3 is apparently the kind you should use. This is a great price. These softgels have a lot of Vitamin D, however, so check with a practitioner about how much you should be taking.
- Natrol Melatonin – $3.99 for 100 tablets
I use melatonin quite a bit. You might want to read my post on Natural Sleep Help for other things we’ve used to help (though I have a few more things we’re using now.) Melatonin basically saved our lives when our oldest son (who has Asperger’s) wasn’t going to sleep.
- Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin - 14 oz $1.59. I have a bunch of this that I bought on clearance awhile ago. We make Pumpkin Chia pudding (recipe to come ) a lot. My kids really love it!
- Bach’s Rescue Remedy Stress Relief – $8.99 – A friend of mine swears by this. I’ve used it a few times with my son and it’s seemed to help alleviate his anxiety.
- Vitacost Vitamin D3 – 2000 IU, 200 capsules – $3.99
- Grandpa’s Pine Tar Bath soap – $2.25 per bar. I have heard that this is very helpful with irritating skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dandruff. I personally think that folks with these conditions need to address their internal health but a little external help is always nice.
And, if you’re a new customer, you get $10 off your first order. And Free Shipping starts at only $49.
You can find all the clearance deals by clicking here. But remember you’ll need to click on the $10 off link to get your savings. And if you aren’t new, I would so appreciate your clicking through here before you shop. I’m an affiliate with Vitacost and make a teensy amount if you shop there after clicking on my link. Your support is very much appreciated. Especially since I’ve had to remove all the ads off my site due to false virus and malware warnings being generated. Sigh.
Hopefully we’ll sort all that out soon !
10% off Almonds and Almond Flour
And, you can still get 10% off any order of wonderful almonds or almond products (like almond flour) at Just Almonds by using CODE WNM. You can read my review of their wonderful products by clicking here.
Just so you know, I don’t make anything from your purchases at Just Almonds, but they really have great products and I’m hopeful they’ll keep working with my blog if you all show you like them by ordering with my code.
Well, that’s it. I’m off now to plan our day that hopefully won’t have us out in the heat too much. We’ve got a lot of straightening up of our home to do, watering the garden and I’m looking into some new health and personal care products to see if I’m going to recommend them to you or not.
Have a blessed and hopefully somewhat restful weekend!
