‘Tis the season for improving your lifestyle, and while New Year’s resolutions are notoriously hard to keep up with, adding a little shopping incentive could be the push you need to stick to your goals. Here are some of our picks for useful products that will help motivate you to push for your resolutions! Although we gotta admit, if your resolution is to shop less, this list of must-haves might be too tempting.
If you’re anything like us, you spend at least ten minutes a day scrolling through Pinterest for recipe ideas and motivation to eat more veggies. But if you’re like us, you also get discouraged when you flip through your grocery store’s weekly flyer and see how expensive it can be to shop well. Imperfect Foods gives you the perfect solution at an affordable price! Their subscription-based grocery service offers everything from lean proteins to mindful snacks and even household products. They keep your costs down in the produce department by offering those less-pretty fruits and vegetables that stores deny, which helps prevent food waste while giving you a scrumptious deal.
A small daily change you can make to get your eating (and food spending) on track is to bring a homemade lunch to work or school rather than ordering takeout or stopping into a trendy café. You can pack dinner leftovers, a colorful salad, or a yummy sandwich with your favorite deli meats for healthy proteins. And what better motivation than Stojo’s collapsible containers? Grab one (or a whole set) in your favorite color and you can just collapse them for easy storage in your bag until you get home to wash them. We’re hungry just thinking of all the delicious treats we can pack in these!
One of the best ways to stay hydrated is to keep water or another healthy drink nearby, whether you’re around the house or in the office. And as crisp as store-bought water can taste, it’s not the most sustainable or budget-friendly option to buy plastic bottles every week when you have a faucet in your home. You can easily and quickly filter tap water with Hydros’ sleek water bottles and pitchers! They pride themselves on filtering water five times faster than other brands, so you won’t miss a beat while waiting for your container to fill. For a yummy addition, you could even throw in fruits like strawberries and lemon to give your water some more flavor.
If you’re constantly on the go or exercising, Urban Armor Gear is a great durable option that you can take to the gym or on a hike. Their Purist water bottle can hold 22 ounces of your favorite drink to keep you hydrated and energized wherever you are. It’s flexible and leakproof, so you don’t have to worry about spilling it in the car or on a bike ride! We love the sleek yet tough design and the rich colors the bottle comes in.

Part of the secret to self-care is to make a routine out of it, whether you hold yourself to washing your face every morning or commit to using your favorite serum every night before bed. As soon as you try Prato Botanico’s Enriching Night Cream, you’ll be transported to the Tuscan countryside!
