Updated: Nov 22

Sales during this part of the year allow me to stock up on all my favorites and save money on things I would be purchasing anyways! I like buying in bulk, being prepared, and having things on hand to share. Here are a few products I'll be checking out this week, with links to deeper reviews I've done (on most items)!
I try to really have what I am buying for the year (soap, spices, candles, etc...) planned out so I can save money buying things in bulk while they're on typically, what's the best sale of the year, opposed to purchasing when I run out throughout the year!
Shop With Me
I broke it down into three main categories: Daily staples (an assortment of things from beauty care to organic clothing), Cleaning & household items (from my favorite handsoap to laundry necessities), and Extras (like candles, snacks, and plants).
There are items I use regularly - from "soap" to spices, and lots of things in between.
MATE the Label - 30% off section of pants, shirts, tanks, & tees
Knickey - underwear, bras (if that's you thing, lol), and socks
Organic basics - undershirts and more for the everyday
Traditional spices - although I say these are traditional, they are very unique in their sourcing and are the best tasting and performing spices I've ever had. I've shared about them in many items I've made here and here (but you can find them in several of my posts
Food powders - I also like these as "spices" - their horseradish and low ox greens are great in soups! They also have a new, 'organ spice' that I am looking forward to trying. This summer, I had an opportunity to go live with their CEO - you can watch the video here. (Affiliate code: SATIATEDBLONDE)
Shower Gel - I call this my body wash, but it is actually an enzymatic body cleanse - they have lots of variety from their seasonal cranberry to unscented. This is also the shaving gel I use and all purpose soap when I travel: shampoo, body, shave, hands, etc... (Affiliate code: SATIATEDBLONDE)
Stasher bags - I've had the original ones I purchased for years - they have a range of sizes and definitely help me go through traditional plastic baggies less frequently -- I think they're great for leftovers!!!
Beauty Products - from tallow balm to hydrosols, these are my favorite products for my face and body...and I've reviewed almost every single item on her site. (Affiliate code: SATIATEDBLONDE) Check out all the posts I've done here (newest to oldest):
EMF protection - I've used their defenderpad ever since I've owned a laptop!
Supplements: Although the supplements I take are much, much less than in times past, there are a few things I like to keep on hand:
CitriDrops Nasal Spray - At the first hint of sinus pressure (which is so much more infrequent for me now a days), or just waking up a little stuffy (yes, we finally turned the heat on, haha!), 2 sprays of this in each nostril make a HUGE difference for me! (Affiliate code: SATIATEDBLONDE)
Cleaning and household items
A lot of the items I use daily. These are more household type items:
Laundry Additive - one of my favorite new additions to my laundry room, I share quite a lot about it on my Instagram, but you can read a whole post on it here, too! Or check out this video. (Affiliate code: SATIATEDBLONDE)
Sheets - these look so soft and they have nice, neutral colors
Other bedding - they have a wide variety of colors, but also some nice duvets and down pillows & comforters.
Mattress - this is on my list to buy!
These aren't daily essentials, but make nice gifts to have on hand or just something a little 'extra.'
Maple syrup candies - I was curious, but so glad I tried these out, so delicious and extravagant!
Jot - a coffee concentrate that my hubby likes to have on hand.
Wine - I enjoy cooking with wine or a small glass with dinner, or special occasions from time to time.
Plants: I like houseplants and have quite the collection now - between ones I've been given and ones I have propagated, it's been so much fun! I think they make great gifts and help brighten up spaces.
If you're looking for gourmet basket ideas or unique items that are more challenging to find in the store, I like:
Fermenting/Cheese making supplies - I learned how to make my own chevre & they have awesome kits - like mozzarella which I am trying out next, but have used their starters to make quite a few things!!! Affiliate code: SATIATEDBLONDE)
