Most of us in the group are on a budget. We don't have access to a lot of organics here. I try to raise as much of my own food as I can and I thoroughly wash what I can't raise. When you cut out all the worthless junk food and eliminate eating out you end up with more money to spend on healthy food than you would think. I buy what is in season and buy it in bulk when I can get it on sale. Farmers markets are sometimes good buys. We have food co-ops that focus only on certain foods like fresh veggies. Most stores here now have a reduced price section and everyone is using it. The meat is often greatly reduced. Beans are fairly economical. I shop at Aldis and discount stores. Eggs are great. Lettuce is still fairly economical if you avoid the prepacked stuff. Sometimes frozen veggies and fruits are a good buy and canned veggies can be too. You can rinse the salt off. Generic is okay. Canned tuna is good. I use coupons and scan the sales ads.
