As I continue this journey of eating organically, I’m slowly realizing that leading a healthier life style adds up. So I went on a hunt to find ways to minimize my spending while maximizing my purchase.
There is one key factor to food shopping and that is learning how to budget and plan. Know how much you want to spend and what you want to buy. This limits the amount of extra goodies jumping into the shopping cart as you walk down the isle.
The simplest way to save is to home cook your meals. Eating out and prepackaged dinners are the fastest way to watch your money dwindle.
In Gainesville, local organic stores are much more likely to offer coupons and deals in order to keep up with its competition. Make sure to keep and eye out and take advantage of this.
Shop in season to get the best value on produce that is available. Varying your diet and trying new food is a great money saver.
Admittedly it is a little pricey to lead a organic lifestyle. However, the benefits you obtain from it far outweigh the cost.
