I am all about living a healthy lifestyle but also love being frugal. I seriously love to save money on things that typically cost more and am going to share my favorite tips with you today on how to live a healthy lifestyle for less. Many people think that it costs a ton of money to live healthy and trust me, it doesn't need to be true! I have found many different things that have helped me save money along the way that I use frequently and am happy to share them with you today.

How to Live a Healthy Lifestyle for Less

1. Save on prescription medications

Prescription medications can be expensive and the LifeInCheck™ prescription drug plan helps save money on your prescriptions. Part of staying healthy can be taking the medications that you need and I love being able to save money on my prescriptions. It can especially be helpful for those who do not have insurance, are underinsured or who have a high deductible insurance plan. 

Pricing is as follows: $14.95/month for everyone in a household or $149.95 per year for everyone in a household. You can show the card on your phone or print it out. You can check the list and many prescriptions are at zero cost to you! We have had pricey prescriptions in the past and this card would be very helpful to save on those. You can save 85-90% on generic drugs, 14-15% on name brand drugs and 175+ prescriptions are available at no cost to members. The average savings per prescription is $64 which is so helpful! You're able to search and compare prices to find the best price at pharmacies near you. 

The LifeInCheck™ plan is not A Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or insurance. LifeInCheck™ is brought to you by Inmar, a data and technology analytics company. Over the past 15 years, Inmar has created relationships with brands and retailers to provide consumers with the lowest price on prescribed medications.

2. Shop grocery sales

How I choose what foods that I buy each week is by looking at the sale ads for the stores that I plan to go to and buying the items that are the best prices. When an item that we love goes on sale that is shelf stable or can be frozen, I stock up. You won't find my pantry with less than 10 cans of no-added salt tomatoes or low-sodium beans! Buying items on sale in quantity can save money by having the items on hand the next time that you need them when they may no longer be on sale.

Of course there are items that you will have to buy whether they are on sale or not and in that case, I Make sure to shop at stores that are overall affordable. Shopping in-season produce helps as well. Strawberries can easily be found for around $1-2 a pound right now while in December, they can often be found for $4 a pound. Shop in-season to save big.

3. Workout at home

I invested in workout equipment for home a long time ago and do not pay for a gym membership. I know that a lot of people like the gym but there are other ways to get your workout in. YouTube has tons of free workout videos. When it is decent weather out, you can go for a walk or run outside. I did purchase a treadmill which is awesome for the cold weather we have in Michigan. I also like having a set of hand weights for strength training. You can often find treadmills and weights second hand and save a lot of money.

4. Find discounted workout clothes and shoes

I definitely believe in good workout shoes because cheap ones can often lead to injuries. I prefer a quality shoe with lots of support. How to save on these pricey shoes is by shopping last season's colors. Most big brands of workout shoes come out with new colors at least once a year. You can find last season's colors on big discount often.

Women have it so easy nowadays finding inexpensive workout gear that is high quality. Most stores have workout clothes for about $10-20 each. Shop clearance racks for even more savings. Use discount apps to search for coupon codes to save even more.

5. Use a reusable water bottle

Part of living a healthy lifestyle includes drinking lots of water. Not only is bottled water bad for the environment but it is also costly compared to using a reusable water bottle and refilling your bottle at the tap. Find a water bottle that you love and take it everywhere to stay hydrated and to save on pricey water bottles.
