How to get Organic without Breaking the Bank

For starters, I plan to start shopping at our local Farmer's Market. The produce isn't ready yet, but as soon as it is I plan to buy some each week (which incidently will be healthier purchased from there than at the store because nutrients won't have been lost in transit.)

Another bonus is that I'm hoping it will be cheaper because I should be paying wholesale prices. Although, when organic produce is featured on the front page of the store flyer I will buy that because that is part of their "loss leaders." A "loss leader" means the store is taking a loss on that item in hopes that it will lead you into their store. This year we are doing a garden so obviously I will only need to purchase items at the market that we won't be growing (e.g. eggs, hopefully beef, etc.)

Another problem I've been having is that I find myself running out of money at the end of each month to put towards buying fresh fruit and vegetables. I think to resolve that issue I am going to try to allot a certain amount each week that is designated for fresh fruits/veggies.  We'll see if that helps. It's so important to have the fresh fruit/vegetables that I have to find a way to make this work!

Maybe I should ask you the reader this question. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to post!
