What are you investing in?

In the last 10 years,  people have lost years of savings in the stock markets. Many people invested in real estate and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. While we are slowly coming out of this recession, and home and stock values are slowly rising again (or at least not dropping further),  it is hard to know where to invest your money to secure a safe future for your family.  

And while the value of our investments have been trying to crawl out of this hole, the cost of food has been on a steady rise. In Jan of 2002, the USDA average monthly cost of feeding a family of 4 (2 adults and two kids under 5), on a thrifty budget, was $399.50. Those on a moderate cost budget spent an average of $619.70. Ten years later, in January of 2012, those same averages have jumped up to $548.00 and $861.20, respectively. That is an increase between 37% and 39%! 

Most THRIVE foods last 25 years unopened on your shelves, and 1-2 years even after you’ve opened them, all without the cost of running a fridge or freezer. There is also no money being thrown away with food waste since you don’t have to worry about them going bad before you can use them. THRIVE foods have no added sodium, sugars or other preservatives, and freeze dried foods retain almost all of the same nutritional benefits as their fresh counterparts. Their convenience makes them easy to incorporate into your daily diet, helping reduce the amount of processed convenience foods and snacks your family consumes. Not only are THRIVE foods a great investment in your family’s health, but with the value of food rising 37% in 10 years, THRIVE foods are a great investment in your family’s financial future as well.

The Winter Price list will end this month and a new Spring Price list will take effect in May. With food costs on the rise everywhere, it is reasonable to expect to see some price increases on THRIVE foods next month. Even then, THRIVE foods will still be a great investment, but the sooner you start investing, the better.  Whether you want to make a large investment all at once, or you want to invest a little each month,  I have a package or a plan that will meet your family’s needs. So contact me today to start investing in a healthy, more secure future for your family.
