Put Away Your Money (read: how to save money on health stuff and how to debunk common myths)  

Health stuff, as we all know, can cost us a whole lot of money.  The first time you walk into a health food shop, expect to be...surprised (maybe I'm under exaggerating that).  Here's a few myths, debunked in layman's terms, for you to consider.  


Myth: You pay for what you get.  Lots of people like to use this excuse to justify their big receipts.  In other words, they're technically telling us "you're getting quality health food, so of course it costs a lot!"  They're right about one part (the "so of course it costs alot" part), but technically, just because something comes from a health food store does not mean it's quality.  I'll say it again: Just because you buy something at a health food store verses a grocery store, doesn't mean you're getting more bang for your buck.  Always make sure that what you are getting is worth the extra dollars!  You may find that the same organic almonds at Planet Organic are sold at Walmart, and PO sells them for a lot more.  In this case, the obvious best decision would be to buy them at Walmart!  :)  See what I mean?  


Myth: Health food stores don't have coupons.  The truth is, they do have coupons - they're just not as frequent and sometimes harder to find.  Alot of stores that sell healthy foods (such as Vitality Health) have coupons in Student Union books for 20%.  Also, Planet Organic offers discounts for seniors on certain days of the week.  So look into it, because most stores really do have coupons.


Myth: The only place you can buy vitamins and supplements are at health food stores. Not true. Vitamins are sold in almost all grocery/mega stores.  The savings might not be substantial in all cases, but it is true that vitamins are sold elsewhere.
