You vote with your money.

Your purchase can make a difference.

Don’t you want what’s best for you and your loved ones?

We may not be aware of it, but we face a lot of pressure on a daily basis when it comes to how we spend our money. Certainly, there are local and far-reaching consequences to where and how we spend, and as responsible adults, it’s good to be aware of that. But sometimes it can seem that everywhere we turn, someone has an opinion—some more forceful than others—on how our money gets put to use.

When we’re given options for a certain product or service, one mindset is that we ought to choose the cheaper alternative to get more “bang” for our buck. On the flip side, there’s the philosophy that we should buy items that are “better” for us, the environment, or other social concerns around the world—even if they cost more.

We here at Verily Cents are all for good value. But we’re also all for using products and services that best serve our own unique lifestyles. So when it comes time to pull out our wallets, how do we choose which way to go?
