How to Eat Organic on a Budget

Eating organic on a budget isn’t as difficult as many people believe it to be. While it’s true that many organic foods cost more than conventional foods, there are a number of ways to obtain organic foods for the same price (or even less) than their conventional counterparts.

Instructions:

1. Don’t buy anything that isn’t on sale. This may be a hard habit to institute, but once you do this regularly you’ll see how the savings add up.

2. Shop at local farmers’ markets. This is one of the best ways to eat organic on a budget because local farmers are able to offer fresher, better tasting foods for a lower price than the supermarkets because they cut out the middleman.

3. Buy things that are in season. Out of season organic food carries a high price tag because it costs a lot of money to ship it from other parts or the world where it is currently in season. Stick to foods that are in season and you’ll save a lot of money.

4. Clip coupons and use them whenever possible. Coupons can be your best friend when it comes to saving money on organic food. There are a number of places to get them such as newspapers, grocery stores, and direct from the manufacturers.

5. Purchase food in bulk. Even if you are a single person, you can save a lot of money by purchasing organic food in bulk. Try to stick to things like dry goods or canned items that won’t spoil and have a long shelf life.

Tips:

Don’t stick to one specific store–shop around in order to find the best value. While you may be loyal to one specific market or co-op, this isn’t always the best way to save money. Look each week to see who has the lowest prices, and go to multiple places in order to get the most savings.
