Thanks for visiting! We are so glad you’re here!
This site has been in the works for many months now and is something that our family is truly passionate about. We want to help others learn how to save money on products that are healthy and wholesome, without having to make compromises due to cost or budget constraints.
This helps to explain how Saving Naturally came about and what our vision is for this site:
Living healthy should be affordable.
There’s a common misconception that it costs a fortune to live more naturally, to eat well and to use products that are easy on our bodies and on the earth. Everywhere you look these days, new “green” or “natural” products are springing up, making enticing promises, but usually with a less-than-enticing price tag.
As a stay-at-home mom of a single-income family these past 6 years, many products like these have been beyond our means. Yet, our family was becoming increasingly aware of the negative effects of conventional body and beauty care, cleaning products, and especially of the processed, industrial foods that fill the grocery store shelves.
The more we learned, the higher priority it became for us to only use and consume things that were sustainable, non-toxic, well-raised and grown, less wasteful, chemical free, whole and healthful.
To do it on a tight, single-income budget, with a growing family!
Over the years, I have come to the conclusion that it doesn’t have to cost more to live in a more natural, healthy and wholesome manner.
We eat a whole foods diet, with probably 80% of our food being organic or that we know has been grown/raised in a responsible, chemical-free manner. We are careful to choose only gentle, non-toxic products to use on our bodies. Our home is cleaned with simple solutions, many homemade and some of them purchased.
Best of all, we do it for the same amount of money (and usually less) than the average family.
Our desire with this site is to teach other families how to do the same. My goal is to help you to find better resources, get the best deals, live more frugally, and more carefully steward and make the most of what you have.
We believe that living in a healthy and natural way is really, truly possible– for every family, on every budget. Even yours.
