Isn’t it unfair that the foods your body needs most are often less affordable than unhealthy foods? There is no doubt that eating organic is an investment – but is your health an investment worth making? I say, ABSOLUTELY. Better health = better quality of life = less doctors appointments = less doctor prescriptions.
We have a few #OrganicHacks that are sure to save you a few dollars. Presenting to you, “How To Eat Organic On A Budget.”
Buy In Bulk
- Unpackaged foods from bulk dispensers, such as oats, beans, lentils, and nuts are a great way to stretch your dollar.
- Find out which fruits and vegetables are in season, since those will typically be the cheapest, thus making it easier to stock up.
- Costco has a large selection of organic staples, all of which are available in bulk sizes.
- Aim to buy organic packaged items in bulk whenever they are on sale.
Find And Use Coupons
- Take advantage of “Buy One, Get One Free” sales whenever you can, which will also help when trying to buy in bulk too!
- Check online for coupons and deals before you head to the store. There are tons of coupon websites to be found just by Googling.
- Follow your favorite product’s social media pages, since they often host weekly specials and coupons exclusively for those who follow.
- Most stores will accept competitors coupons, so don’t be afraid to try to get all those same deals at your local market.
- Grow your own herbs, since organic herbs tend to be some of the more overpriced organic items in the grocery store.
- Learning to can and pickle the fruits and veggies you grow can make your garden last into the colder months.
- You could even give your garden extras as gifts to family and friends, saving you money on material items, while also cutting down on waste!
