Eating organic doesn't have to be expensive with planning.

Due to comments to a recent blog post about buying organic on a budget. I thought I would post a few tips.

  • Before you do anything, take a look to see what you already have on hand. Fridge. Freezer. Cabinets.

  • Make a menu using things you already have in the house.

  • Prepare your grocery list. Make it simple.

  • Check for sales.

  • Buy in bulk. For example I checked on Dried Chives. I could buy a spice jar size for $5.00 or I could buy the same amount in bulk for about .40 Yes, the price difference was that much!!!! From now on I will always buy spices in bulk.

  • Check for coupons. I have found that the products I buy the most offer coupons on their site. I also have a few organic coupon links listed on the right side of my blog. I always check those out after my list is made.

  • If it's not on the list then it doesn't go in the buggy.

  • Make more homemade meals. For example I make muffins and bars for snacks. Using mostly what is already in the house. "Convenience" will cost you much more. I blogged about how much I save by making my own granola bars verses buying them by the box. You will want to read about that here.

  • Make enough for left-overs.

  • Buy a rotisserie chicken. You can eat on it for a week. Lunch. Dinner. I blogged about this before. Go here to read what you can do with that one rotisserie chicken. Mrs F gets a big THANK YOU for this idea. She offers many more great ideas on her blog.

How's that as a starter? Due to having surgery tomorrow I am working on getting my house in order. The kids and husband need to be taken care of while I am recuperating! I will leave you with two adorable photos of Baby M. She loves to PLAY with empty BOXES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Conversations with my best friend BG. #thebgs

This will be a random question that will be from a CrAzY conversation with my Beastie Grits.

The first ever question asked since the very small, more work to do, blog change over.

1)  Where do you keep your wine?

My response,

"Above the washing machine as no one else knows how to use such a complex machine."

She said, I picture with her hands on her hips, "Yeah, NO SHIT!  LOL"

Thank you thank you thank you,
