Save Money on Organic Food

Who says organic isn't affordable? Would you like to save money on organic products you buy? There are various merchants who provide online coupons for these healthy foods. Here are just a few:

Organic Valley
Stonyfield Farm
Organic Coupons - variety of merchants who sell organic food and household items
Brown Cow Farm
Earthbound Farm
Imagine Foods
Seventh Generation
Eat Better America - has various coupons for organic food merchants such as Cascadian Farm and Muir Glen Organic

Here are some other ways to save money on organic:
  • Look for store brands featuring organic items. Many stores are now featuring an in-house brand or off-brands which are more economical such as Whole Foods 365 line, S&W,
  • Shop locally and seasonally as well. These foods are always cheaper, fresher, and more nutritious. Check this list of fruits and vegetables that are in season, month-by-month.
  • Don't buy processed foods; buy fresh, whole food ingredients
  • Keep your eye open for sales
  • Be willing to substitute one thing for another if the item is cheaper (don't skimp on quality though)
  • Join a co-op or CSA. These groups provide benefits and extras to their members.
  • Grow your own in a home or community garden.
