Saving on Organic Foods
Hope you enjoyed the show, I summarized some of the topics below and I will be adding more posts on organics and how to save money on them in upcoming posts.
Save by using printable coupons. You can find them online, here are a few great places to find organics coupons. You can also search my Coupon Database for any coupons you need. You can find it here. Just type in what you want and click search:
Other Places to find coupons:
Stores like Whole foods have a bunch of coupons in store (look by the door usually and you will find the Whole Deal Value Guide filled with Coupons) and online here and you can combine them with manufacturers coupons to get good deals.
Go right to the source: You can also check out the website of your favorite organic brand to look for coupons. Or even write to your favorite brand and tell them how much you love their products and usually they will mail you coupons!
Grow your own food– Have a green thumb? Consider starting a garden. If not you can always buy or barter fresh organic food from neighbors and friends! Lots of people who have gardens often have lots of extra fruits and veggies that they end of giving away or even throwing away!
Shop in season– Usually seasoned foods are on sale if you buy them then freeze them you will save money. Markets will usually have those one or two items that are on deep discount, they usually use those items to drive people into the store. Buy lots and freeze them to save money.

Resources: EWG.org is a great resource for finding more information on pesticides in our foods. EWG.org lists of “clean” and “dirty” produce is based on laboratory tests done by the USDA Pesticide Testing Program and the Food and Drug Administration. Most data came from USDA tests, which includes a large number of food crops and pesticide residues. You can learn more and download their guide here.
