Here are great tips to help you have a healthy body and a wallet when you shop:
Tip 1: Never go shopping when hungry
If you go food shopping when you are tired or hungry, you will be tempted to spend your money on unhealthy food, rather than nutritious food.
Tip 2: Make a shopping list & plan ahead
Make a shopping list – and stick to it! It will help you to keep within your budget and you won’t spend money unnecessarily!
Tip 3: When shopping only visit the parts of the shop you really want to go to!
It is wise to only visit the parts of the shop that you have to go to when you are shopping – you don’t have to browse do you? Browsing will tempt you to buy things you may not really need! Think about how many hours it took to work for the money you may be about to spend unnecessarily!
Tip 4: Shopping online for your fruit, veggies and everyday products is great!
Look into ordering ONLINE for an organic fruit and veggie box each week or fortnight, instead of shopping for these essential food items. This also supports local businesses! It will save you time!
There are good ONLINE businesses that provide a great service! Plan your meals every week and this way you will only order what you need and intend to use, therefore saving wastage and your money!
We also shop ONLINE (or by phone) each month, at Wholesale Prices, for all our nutritional, personal care, pet, garden, laundry and cleaning products. We were fortunate to find a local, Australian-owned company based in Gatton…Paradise Nutrients. It is re-assuring to know that the products we are using on a daily basis are all safe, non-toxic and don’t have any known cancer causing ingredients in them. We like to support local businesses as much as we can!

Tip 5: Receive money back and Loyalty Benefits when you shop…it’s a smart way to shop!
Consider doing most of your shopping ONLINE as a ‘hassle free’ way of shopping, without changing what you usually buy! Would you like money back when shopping ONLINE, plus Loyalty Benefits when shopping at places like Apple Store, Microsoft, Groupon, Deals Direct, Pillow Talk, Nutra Organics, Happy Skincare, Clinique, The Iconic, etc. etc. etc.,…even an ePharmacy be of interest to you?

Tip 6: Read Food labels and avoid distractions when shopping
It is always wise to always read food labels when shopping. What shows on the front of the packaging may not be as healthy as it seems! There are many hidden sugars in processed foods, artificial chemicals, etc. Remember fresh is best for a healthy body!
If possible, do your main grocery weekly shop alone – it can be far less stressful without ‘distractions’!…or for better stress free shopping, do most of your shopping ONLINE as this will save you time, money and stress! There are so many great ONLINE companies providing a good service for busy people who would prefer to do other things with their free time!
Tip 7: Minimize the use of Credit Cards and live within your means
Minimizing CREDIT CARDS will also minimize FEES and STRESS! Keep track of credit card purchases so you can pay bills in full before you are charged interest each month. Try hard to live within your means…if you haven’t got the money…don’t buy it!
Tip 8: Protect your credit and debit cards
Protect your debit and credit cards by purchasing a ‘Vault Wallet’ so that your bank information can’t be accessed, especially when travelling overseas. These wallets can be purchased from most handbag and luggage shops.
