Buy These Things at a Dollar Store...and why not buy more?

Best 15 Things You Can Buy at the Dollar Store that will help you Save!!!!!

15) Greeting Cards

14) Party Supplies

13) Gift bags, party supplies and wrapping paper

12) Seasonal decor

11) Reading Glasses

10) Hair Accessories

9) Pregnancy Tests

8) Mugs and Glasses

4) Bagged or boxed Candy

3) Sox

2) Washcloths and dishtowels

1) Vases and decorative bowls

Supporting your local Dollar Store with items like these makes for a sensible shopping trip. In my experience, it's no surprise to see they also inventory personal care, cleaning and food products that may not be so sensible for consumers because they are made with cheap fillers and ingredients that are harmful to our skin, the air we breath, our natural waters that surround us, and our bodies.

When you start to compare wholesale product prices that are manufactured only with safer quality ingredients, there are some much better, alternative options that are available and just as affordable to choose from in the marketplace. Unfortunately, most of the major competitors are not able to offer healthier ingredients in their products because it is not profitable for them to do. If they did, their prices would be marked much higher than they are now and bargain buyers, like me, would not be able to afford nor would I want to spend additional dollars when I'm looking for the best buy!

On the other hand, the convenience and dependability with what we found, able to purchase and use at home for our family has been a remarkable way to effectively stay healthy, save money and receive amazing customer benefits too.  All for simply switching to a healthier store for all our necessities. Some questions to think about next time you use your shopping dollars: Why do you shop for your brand of choice and how safe and effective is what you are using?

I know we will continue to shop at the one Dollar Store for most of what is on this 15 item Best Buy list....as well as, our much needed selection they offer of office and school supplies!!!!  And with most, if not all of our other personal care, cleaning products, nutritionals, weight loss, health specific condition and web-specials, I will choose to buy from a safer, eco-friendly, store brand. Cheers to saving money wisely while doing some smart shopping!

To your health and happiness!

Thank you to MoneyTalk for these 15 Best Buys at the Dollar Store!!

Better, healthier, safer and habit saving tips!

These days, it seems more and more that we are looking to find better health, save on our daily expenses and help reduce our carbon footprint. Without question, some consumers may already be doing this and that is fantastic!! In some cases, others would add some more specific areas to help reach their personal, financial, environmental or health oriented goals. 

In my study, what I am learning along the way, is there are reliable resources available to look at your options, collect all the facts and information before making an informed decision that will be beneficial and add value to you without risk!  As a result, I have found what other families are doing to help in these areas, by simply using a products and services fact sheet that could help uncover some of your common daily expenses and saving habits too! With a simple overview, you too can learn how to reduce your monthly expenses and how to best reach your product needs without spending more money than you are currently doing. As we are looking to save, not spend more money and trying to get ahead, not behind, on bills, mortgage payments, maintain better health, etc, within our community, you will find this survey is an eye opener and a great way to identify your current expenses that could be significantly reduced with a convenient, simple and smarter Eco-friendly, Wellness, one stop shop!

I am looking forward to your input and always open to helping others find a better way to save on so many products and services that we all need and use on a daily, if not, monthly basis.

Let's look at your shopping needs and click here, then send your total score to me at susannaceo@gmail.com - if you are open to learning more about how you can switch and save we can schedule a time that works for you. Please include, best number and time for me to to call .

Coming together is a beginning....what's in it for you?

Honest Teamwork. When I started to work in Corporate America I felt as though it was always me, me, me, trying to advance myself and seeing my co-workers doing the same. Hmmmm, at times there was a sense of community and "group meetings" -- but for the most part, there wasn't a gut feeling of having a team of staff members who genuinely wanted me to succeed, resulting in a very competitive atmosphere!

Some may agree to this feeling and others may not, if you've been in this similar situation I can tell you from experience that there are some companies that really do practice and value Teamwork. If you are in that type of working environment - High Five!!!  These companies do value collaborative work and it's not for the ones who strive to be the "shining stars" but for those who are passionate and practice the true value of "team success". 

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. 

Henry Ford 

When we start to think about how can we help the other person achieve success....that's when we ALL achieve success. It's a hard concept to practice as corporations continue to value only the ones who stand out and fend for themselves. I used to think this is the only way to achieve success in the workplace too BUT I'm grateful to have learned over the years that this is not how I want to advance in business. I am now a business partner in a company that has taught me an honest approach on achieving success with ethical standards and transparent business practices.   

It is essential to build relationships with teammates, for their benefit, to start to help them work through their challenges and be willing to work alongside their efforts, to reach their goals. To inspire, to mentor and offer ways to improve the other members reach their highest potential is all a part of working together. By doing this simply, step by step, it also offers such a humbling experience and it allows one to achieve success, not only as a person but as a leader. It is not easy work, but it is the most rewarding from a personal and financial standpoint. 

I am grateful for the mentors who I had in corporate America, but looking back, it was never about my success, it was always about their success. I have experienced many corporate challenges in my career before motherhood, and have to say that the most professionally rewarding for me, has been with my current partnership as a co-owner of a company that truly wants to help me and my family succeed with my business, as I help others to do the same.  

Would love to hear why you work at your current job and how does it benefit you? 

Cheers to your success and happiness!

A Chance to Help Make a Difference....

I'll be the first to admit that about two years ago I was a clueless consumer and stuck in my old ways!

This video from Healthy Child Healthy World, is one of my favorites because it highlights a short story that resonates with many parents and home owners today. If a family member or someone you  know suffers from chronic illness like cancer, asthma, nervous disorders, birth defects, ADD, Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders that can range from headaches and dizziness to Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease, please take a look at this video.

If you are already taking necessary precautions to maintain a healthier home environment, I encourage you to please share your practices and let's help each other to live inside a healthier home that is within your control. There are so many alternatives to healthier choices and so many wonderful solutions available to support healthy living and improve our quality of life just by changing some simple, everyday consumer habits!

Thank you Healthy Child Healthy World for this overview and appreciate how it shows us why scientists and doctors are discovering that there is a connection between our daily use of household chemicals and the increasing numbers over the last 20 years of children, household pets and loved ones who are suffering from long term, chronic health problems.

Let's start to look at what we choose to bring into our homes and begin changing some simple habits by educating, informing, and protecting our families, children and friends. Getting the facts is the first step!

To your healthy home and healthy habits!
