7 Money-Saving Tips to Cut Your Grocery Food Bill By $30 a Week
6. Swap Organic Produce for Conventional
Buying organic produce is great when you can afford it, but if you’re on a budget you’ll do better to stick with conventional. If you are concerned about pesticides, be strategic and choose the fruits and vegetables that have been shown to have very little pesticide residues according to the Environmental Working Group’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce. You can save anywhere from 30 cents to $1 (or more) by buying conventional over organic, depending on what you’re buying.
