living a full life on a smart budget-naturally and organically

Websites I LOVE July 3, 2010

Here are some of my favorite sites. Check them out. Many of them offer referral benefits. If you decide to shop or sign-up, I appreciate you using my link, name or blog (as applicable) as your referral source. Thanks!

Health & Fitness

Count calories, track weight loss, work-outs and more. Try the free version or upgrade for additional features and options. This site offers referral credits. Please source me as your referral if you decide to sign up!

Use this site to track your daily calories (and much more if you want) for FREE (there is an upgrade option you can purchase). You can enter custom foods to tailor to your specific eating habits.

Use this site to enter your own recipes and calculate nutritional data.

Daily Deal Sites

Groupon is fantastic. This completely lets you stretch your budget by purchasing Groupons for things like movies, spa treatments, dining out, shopping and more. They offer referral credits. I would be much appreciated if you can sign up using my link here. Sign up today and start enjoying the savings!.

This site is full of great deals-one deal at a time. It can change in a matter of minutes so if you think you want something you better just buy it right then.

Natural, Organic or Toxin-Free Products

My friend and neighbor, Melisa Moate, signed up to be a consultant for this brand and shared it with me. I love the products and they are all toxin free. Check out her page for more info on ordering or booking a party.

Coupons or Shopping Planning

I currently use this on my iPhone as an App. I’ve not tried the web portion of this–but so far it is so much better than the old paper list.

This site is great if you want to track prices at your local stores and also track coupons and sale cycles so you have a record of the lowest price possible on the products you regularly purchase. There is a fee to sign up. I suggest doing the one year fee and see if you end up using it. Then you can renew later for a lifetime fee.

This site has links to several of the printable coupon sites and to electronic sites like cellfire and shortcuts.

Target has a coupon section! Go to the bottom of the page to find the link. Remember you can use a Target coupon with a MFRC coupon per item.  Also you can use the iPhone app and phone-only coupons. Score!


Need a better way to track your budget and finances? This site is perfect if you use online account access for any of your credit cards, bank accounts and loans. It gathers your info from each of your sites and compiles it in one easy to read format. You can set up a budget and track purchases if you use your debit card or checks (or credit card…but only do that if you can pay it off each month) to make everyday purchases. If you rely on cash for all your purchases this will not work as well for budgeting. iPhone app available!
