⇒Problem: How to Find Healthy Products for Less

Solution: Take a look at what I found at the dollar stores

12+ items that are surprisingly healthy and handy!!

First of all, here are three Natural Remedy items I found at our local dollar store:

#1

Hyland’s Cold ‘n Cough Remedy:  I was pleasantly surprised to find this item at our local dollar store~Hyland’s Homeopathic Cold and Cough Remedy. This cough and cold medication is great to have on hand for young children and even adults. It might be especially good for those that are sensitive to other medications. As always, it is very sensible to double-check with your pediatrician or doctor before taking any type of medications.

Having more natural products on hand is always a good idea and there is no sense in paying more when these are available at the dollar store. So many people think of these discount stores as just places to get quick stop items. But really looking over the shelves can be very beneficial with discoveries like natural, homoeopathic products such as these!!

This is one of those 12+ Healthy Products for Less at Dollar Stores!!!

#3

Ricola Throat Lozenges are great to have on hand for various ailments during every season.

Daisy Sour Cream: I have always wanted to be so organized that I could make my own sour cream. But that has just not happened but I have found that Daisy Sour Cream is made with only 3, yes! just three ingredients!!! Cultured Milk and Salt + Vitamin A…….this is amazing when compared to those other sour creams which are loaded with a bunch of unusual sounding things. Simple foods are better foods. Another simple product that is available at the dollar store.

Sherwood nut clusters: what a nice surprise to find a Non GMO healthy snack at the local dollar store. These nut clusters contain pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, peanuts and cranberries. They have loads of protein and reduced amounts of sugar. Brown Rice Syrup which has a low glycemic level is one of the sweeteners.   2g Fiber ♦ 4g Protein ♦ No Preservatives

It is really nice to have a few ideas for healthier snacks especially on the fly. This is where I fall short, when things are super busy and I run out of time.

If you buy juice, then try to get the OCEAN SPRAY 100% Fruit Juice. The dollar store has a bunch of different kinds of fruit juice blends, cocktail blends with added sugar and Koolaid-type juices. But they are not 100% juice. I rarely buy juice but when I do, I try to get the 100% juice kind. There are several different kinds of 100% juice available. This is just one more better buy for less.

#8

Mott’s 100% Apple Juice is another great option from the dollar store. Like I mentioned above, I do not buy juice very often, but when I do, it is great to have the option of finding 100% Apple Juice for less!

1/2 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide can be added to the wash to help with bad stains (make a paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to treat stains before washing). Always to try a small test area first for color fastness.

Distilled White Vinegar helps brighten whites, removes odors, and can be used in place of fabric softener. This is added during the rinse cycle.

Natural White Vinegar for cleaning and also for weed control. Vinegar is an all natural weed killer that is environmentally safe. As always, you will caution as vinegar is a non-selective herbicide which means it will kill all plants not just weeds. So, make sure to use with care.
