If you are into Organic/Natural/Healthy products, then Social Nature is up your alley. Sign up and apply to sample products that you are interested in. I get probably 1-2 products to sample each month. And most of the time it’s full-size products, not just a tiny sample.
Most of the time, Social Nature will mail me a coupon for a free product and I go to my local Target, Sprouts, or other retailer and pick up the item. I’ve gotten products valued at $20+ too (recently sampled and reviewed skincare products, kombucha, frozen entrees, and veggie burgers to name a few).
Right now, Social Nature has TONS of great products available for sampling- from Ice Cream, skincare products, meat alternatives, and more.

Fall and Winter are the prime time for illnesses to go around, especially the flu. While the flu shot isn’t effective against all strains of influenza, it does help to keep those to receive it safely again many strains.
Most insurance companies offer no or low-cost flu shots, but if you are uninsured and facing financial difficulties, even $20 for a flu shot can be out of reach. Thankfully there are organizations and resources to help keep you healthy and safe.
If you are in San Diego County, Champions for Health offers free Flu shots, PCV13 shots for those over 65, and Tdap shots for those between the ages of 10-64. They have opportunities all over San Diego County throughout the fall.
If you or your children are in need of vaccinations (flu and beyond) but are without insurance, the san Diego County Health and Human Services Agency offers no-cost vaccines. More information can be found here.
In addition to vaccines, there are a lot of other ways you can stay healthy this fall and winter. Most of us are already doing them!
- Wash your hands frequently- use soap and water and scrub for at least 20-30 seconds.
- Try not to touch your face.
- Cover your nose and mouth when your sneeze (either with a tissue or cough or sneeze into your elbow).
- Use hand sanitizer when you cannot wash your hands with soap and water.
- If you are wearing re-usable/cloth masks, make sure to wash and dry them frequently. Disposable masks should be used once and thrown away. Please remember to clip the elastic ear loops before throwing the mask away- animals can get caught up in the loops.
- Avoid sick people, and if you aren’t feeling well yourself, do not go out in public.
- Eat well, include lots of vitamin and mineral rich foods.
- Stay Hydrated. This is my favorite water bottle.
My kids are ready to celebrate! I’ve found some freebies and low-cost deals for those of you looking for some sweet deals (see what I did there??) and some of our family recipes if you are in the mood to cook.
If you are trying to stay on budget, here are a few of our family favorite dessert recipes:

It’s back for the month of October! Every Friday in October, our friends over at Faith Chapel understand that with all that’s going on in the world that some of us still need help finding healthy food during this difficult time. And that’s it not always safe for us to go to the store or hit up a farmers market.
Distribution is happening this every Friday in October (8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th), beginning at 10:00am.
This is a drive-thru style event, so you don’t have to leave your vehicles.
Here is a picture of what was available in previous weeks! Sometimes you get produce, sometimes is eggs, milk, and other dairy products and meat- it changes weekly!
Faith Chapel is located at 9400 Campo Road Spring Valley, CA 91977
The UCSD Eyemobile for Children will be making its way around San Diego County this month offering free eye exams and free eyeglasses to kids 3-16-years old. Call to make an appointment (858)822-2585.
