Organic Food on a Budget

As a Stay-at-Home Mom, I am always on a budget.  I also want to make sure I am giving my family the best food they could eat.  Processed foods are normally cheaper, but I am not willing to give up nutrition for our budget.

I have recently been trying to find organic or natural alternatives that I can still buy on my budget.  I have found that Costco has great prices on organic foods compared to regular or natural grocery stores.

I can, however, buy some organic foods at my local Kroger for a great price occasionally.  I try to match up sales with coupons at the Kroger store I go to.  They have two aisles of organic products and also have organic products peppered throughout the store.  When I find that an organic product has gone on sale and that I have a coupon for it, sometimes I can get it for less than its processed version.

I still buy mostly non-organic products because of the price, but slowly, I plan on purchasing more organic foods and stocking up on organic products when they go on sale.  I hope I can make the switch without blowing my budget!
