Plan In Advance
Pay Attention To Portion Size
Make The Freezer Your Friend
Your freezer can help you save significantly on organic foods in two important ways. First, planning and watching serving sizes alone may not eliminate leftovers completely. When purchasing meats, look for items that are already wrapped and ready for freezing should you not be able to consume them in time – it's a quick fix that instantly saves money on the following week's bill. Additionally, whenever possible, buy already frozen certified-organic produce. In many cases, not only is buying frozen fruits and vegetables less expensive than buying fresh, the frozen version also offers just as many nutrients.
Prioritize Your Shopping List
If you still feel like you're stretching your grocery budget too thin, it's time to prioritize your weekly shopping list. In general, animal products are usually the most important to buy organic due to the concentrations of pesticides, antibiotics, and growth hormones used throughout its lifecycle. Focus on buying USDA certified organic meats, cheese, butter, yogurt, eggs, and milk to reap the benefits offered from these healthier options.
