Not sure if shopping at iHerb makes sense?
I shop there pretty often, as you may already know. I find it makes life easier for me - not only do they make it easy to find some "hard to find" products my family needs (like fragrance free shower products), but I save a significant amount of money on things like vitamins and probiotics. They are definitely less expensive at iHerb than my local stores, and shipping is VERY affordable (currently $4 for up to 4 lbs, if you choose economy shipping).
Here are some of the things I like to buy at iHerb:
Palm Oil (this eco-friendly version is not available in Israel at all, and is perfect for making frosting or fudge)
Magnesium Tablets (these and many other supplements are quite pricey in Israel and iHerb is a great way to save!)
Stash Teas (I buy these when they are on sale, as the sale price comes out to less than the lowest price I can find herbal teas for locally, and these are just SO MUCH HIGHER quality!)
Vitamin D Tablets (so many people are deficient, it turns out! And my doctor prescribed a rather high dose, and what's sold here is very low dose and more expensive)
Probiotics are far less expensive from iHerb, and they don't weigh much
EO shower gel (we like this kid friendly all-in-one shower product that doesn't irritate our skin!)
Ricola throat drops (these work out to be only slightly less expensive than the local price, so I use them as a "filler" product, never as my "reason for buying")
Stain Remover (this Ecover product is GREAT, and iHerb's price is slightly lower than I can get it for locally when there's a sale, but again, I just use it as a "filler product" when I'm ordering other things and there's space left in the order)
Witch Hazel (it's really not easy to find witch hazel products locally, and if you love witch hazel, you'll be thrilled with iherb's price. This one is a toner with alcohol in it - great for teens' skin issues - but they also have plenty of no-alcohol witch hazel products)
Coffee Filters (unbleached)
Brown Rice Pasta (only when they're on sale, great for people who don't eat wheat! The local equivalent is more expensive unless there's an amazing sale)
Grapefruit Seed Extract (similar product, 1/4 of the size, cost more than twice as much at my health food store, and so many people are convinced this keeps colds away!)
Essential Oils (I use them in homemade cleaners)
Soy-free Teriyaki Sauce (for my soy allergic child)
Calendula Cream (so soothing and wonderful for eczema!)
I also regularly check the Specials Page to see if products I use are on sale and work out to a better deal thru iHerb during a sale, and I also occasionally will order a hard-to-find spice.
If you haven't ordered from iHerb, now is the perfect time to check it out!
And please let me know what your favorite deals are!
