Here’s a list of all my favorite resources in regards to Natural Living, Budgeting, Babies, and Blogging.
Disclosure: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here. If you decide to purchase something through one of these links, I will receive a small portion of the sales at no additional cost to you.
Style with Purpose
Swap.com – Love Swap.com for kids clothing especially, but they’re also offering men’s and women’s. Prices start at around $2, so you can’t beat the deals or the qualty. Plus, you get 20% off and FREE shipping off your first order.
ThredUp – Love these guys too, especially for kids and maternity clothing. And you’ll get $10 off your first order if you use my referral link on this one too.
Gymboree – I love the quality of their clothing and usually try to shop their sales to get the best price.
eBay – I use eBay for all kinds of things, but most especially kids shoes like Stride Rite or Robez.
Stitch Fix – While the prices are higher than shopping used, it’s so much fun to have someone else style my clothes. I love how they find things I never would have picked up before.
Babies and Cloth Diapers
Sweet Bottom – Free shipping and tons of selection. This is my go to when I need to buy cloth diapers.
Ergo – My ergo is my go to carrier once we get past the newborn stage. It’s so easy to put on and it’s super comfortable.
Dave Ramsey – We follow most of Dave’s advice on getting out of debt and budgeting. I highly recommend his books and his Financial Peace University.
YNAB – We love You Need A Budget. It’s really helped us take control of our money and work together to work towards our financial goals. It’s a $60 one time fee, but it’s totally been worth it for us. We did the free trial first to check it out.
EBATES – I love EBATES because I get a percentage back on most of my online purchases. I’m not having to spend anything extra to get money back on things that I’m already going to buy. I suggest installing the toolbar that lets you know if a shop offers EBATES rewards, that way you don’t forget and kick yourself for missing out on money. I can usually get about $20 back every quarter, sometimes more.
Mountain Rose Herbs – I buy my herbs and spices from here. I also like to buy stuff like beeswax, cocoa butter and containers from this place too. Everything is high quality and most of it is organic and the prices are awesome.
Tropical Traditions – I love their coconut oil and use it for everything from diaper rashes to cooking. I wait for their sales and stock up.
DoTerra – I’ve started buying all my essential oils from doTerra because I trust the quality. I use them all around my house for cleaning, burns, headaches, during pregnancy, to prevent sickness and to help treat it.
Plant Therapy – I also really like these essential oils. They’re very highly rated and from what I can tell excellent quality and they offer kid save blends. And they have free shipping and returns.
Bumblewood – LOVE their body butters, lip balms and soaps. All natural without any yucky ingredients and prices that you just can’t beat.
EcoNuts – I wash all our clothes and cloth diapers in soap nuts. They’re great for sensitive skin and are antibacterial without any harsh chemicals.
PicMonkey – I use this free online photo editor to edit photos and create graphics for my posts. You can pay a small fee to get better fonts, background and editing options too.
Canva – This is the other one I use to edit photos and create graphics for my blog. It has a few more fonts to pick from and a little bit more flexibility with typography type projects.
Pexels – Free stock photos. Need I say more?
BlueHost – I chose BlueHost as my hosting service once I went to self hosted.
GoDaddy – This is where I registered my domain name.
Restored 316 – I purchased my theme from here and it was super easy to tweak without hiring a professional.
Commentluv – Allows commenters to leave a link back to their latest post.
Related Posts by Zemantra – Puts related posts at the bottom of each post to keep readers clicking around my site.
Genesis Simple Hooks – Allows me to plug in ads and other info into my Genesis theme without knowing code.
Other Helpful Information
Rafflecopter – When I run giveaways, I use the free version of this program to keep track of entries and choosing a random winner.
ShareASale– I’m signed up as an affiliate with several of 3,000 merchants with these guys. It’s nice because a lot of affiliates have a pay out minimum, but with Share A Sale I can reach that minimum faster since all their companies are pooled together. I can also keep track of all the stat’s for those company’s on their portal instead of logging into several different accounts. Now if all my affiliate programs would just join Share A Sale, I’d be in luck.
