Request Coupons
There are many organic companies that will send you coupons just for the asking. To ask, just visit their websites and send an email or get on their mailing lists. Some companies great about sending coupons are:

www.cascadianfarms.com
www.earthsbest.com
www.healthvalley.com
www.earthboundfarms.com

Follow Companies on Facebook
Follow organic companies such as Amy’s, Mambo Sprouts, Peter Rabbit, and other organic brands for up to date offers and savings. You will be able to print coupons, request samples as they become available, and even enter contests for great prizes. “Like” your favorite brands on Facebook and save.

Buy on Sale and Save
You can always buy organic items on sale and keep a stockpile going. Soups and dry goods will store just fine. Should you find organic produce at a great price, don’t be afraid to stock up. You can always dry, freeze, or can what you are unable to use before it goes bad.

Join Swagbucks
How on earth can Swagbucks save you when buying organic? Well, when you join Swagbucks you can take surveys to earn points redeemable for gift cards. Gift cards are available for retailers such as Amazon, Target, and Walmart. Then, use those gift cards to purchase organic items you have not been able to find savings for.

Use Your Loyalty Card
You can score additional savings on organic products just by stacking a coupon with the store savings being offered. Use your loyalty card and start stacking those savings on your favorite brands.

Check Online For Lower Prices
One place to search for organic items is Amazon. Surprisingly you can find great deals on nonperishable (produce or meat) items such as coconut oil for cooking or even flour and sugar for baking.

Select Certain Foods As Organic

When buying organic on a budget you want to get the biggest bang for your buck and that means possibly selecting only certain items as organic. The best way to do this is to buy organic-only from the Dirty Dozen: The produce with the most amount of pesticides. This includes:

  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Grapes (Imported)
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Potatoes

In addition to the dirty dozen, fresh organic meat is another great way to get the most for your money. In fact simply buying from your local farmer, whether organic or not, is the best way to know where the meat is coming from and how it is processed. By getting to know the farmer you are getting to know the meat you are purchasing.

Give these tips a try and see how you too can enjoy organic products for less
