Okay. If you are like me when you go to buy something you can almost always talk yourself out of the purchase. Sometimes I find a killer deal or something I've really been wanting, walk around the store with it in my hand for an hour or more and still put it back on the shelf before I leave the store. Can anyone else relate?
Don't stress about switching every item in your home over in a day. Give yourself permission to make changes slowly over time. Start with practical items like switching to non-toxic laundry soap, hand soap or toothpaste.
Cash back is always appealing, right? Could you apply for a credit card with cash back opportunities? Dave Ramsey lovers, close your ears and skip over this first paragraph. We love our Capital One Venture Card, because we get cash back or travel redemption points. Our goal is to always pay off the card in full each month so we aren't adding to our debt, but getting the perks of using the card.
Another card opportunity that many friends have taken advantage of is applying for Paypal credit. Your purchase simply has to be over $100 to get approved. Your order or purchase is then divided into a 6 month payment plan with 0% interest. This is a fantastic option for someone who wants to invest in a Young Living Premium Stater Kit, but only has about $30 in their budget per month to invest into the non-toxic product switch.
Another pro tip is to dilute the Thieves laundry soap! It is 6 times ultra-concentrated so you can dilute one bottle of pure concentrate into 3 bottles of laundry soap. This breaks the cost down to about 20 cents per load (factoring in the cash back on Essential Rewards in that number).
I'd love to help your family create a customized budget plan and strategy that fits your needs and helps you switch to non-toxic products!
