Budgeting for your Essential Rewards Package

Another word you can use for the monthly Essential Rewards package is "Monthly Wellness Box". It's the box that you get to design yourself depending on what your needs and your family needs are in any particular month. You change, delete, and add products, and then Young Living will process it on the day you choose for them to do so, then promptly ship it right to your door, arriving within a week. **By the way, their YLGo program is the prepay shipping program they have now that will save you money AND get your wellness box shipped to you even quicker. You can decide if you want the "Basic" or the "Plus", depending on how many orders you think you will be placing each month. Personally, I go with the Basic, but many love the Plus program; so you decide what is best for you, after you read the benefits of both.

 

So.... on with how you get to enjoy the Essential Rewards autoship program without falling out of your family's "monthly budget", which is always wise to have, of course. 

 

1. See what your WEEKLY household income is, depending on how many weeks are in that particular month. Some months have 4 weeks, and some have 5, so if you get paid weekly, you will get an extra paycheck four months out of the year. 

***If you get paid once a month, then divide it by 4 or 5 (depending on the weeks). 

 

2. Decide what is 10% of that. For example, if you get $1,000 a week, then 10% of that would be $100 per week.

 

3. Set that 10% aside immediately into another "savings" account so that you don't get tempted to spend it on other things.

 

4. Add up the money you saved and that is how much you get to spend that month on your wellness box! Don't worry about the pricing.... just know you have that much to spend and don't go under or over (at least not by much - stay within that amount as much as possible)

 

That's it!! Whatever you get is something you don't need to get elsewhere, so that can easily be saving you money you used to spend in other places, and you simplified your life by adding it to your Young Living monthly wellness package, having Young Living ship it to directly to your door. You stay more orgazized too since you have to start noticing what things you will need in your home that month - what oils, what supplements, what personal care products, what household cleaning produts, etc. You will thank me later once you see how AMAZING it is to be on this program.

You get rewarded for simplifying your life, learning to budget your money, and helping others do the same thing so that they can also simplify their life as they enhance their lifestyle.
