Buying organic food might be good for your health, but it’s not always so good for your wallet. Fortunately, we’ve uncovered strategies for buying organic produce and other organic items without breaking the bank. Amy McCoy, author of Poor Girl Gourmet, and Gary Foreman, editor of The Dollar Stretcher, offered the following tips. 

1. Buy In Season

2. Plan Your Meals Around What You Buy

3. Go Straight To The Source

4. Search For Coupons

Coupons for organic produce are a rarity but you might find coupons for other products like organic granola, yogurt, bread, or cleaning supplies. McCoy suggests checking WholeFoodsMarket.com and OrganicFoodCoupons.com for coupons. Also check the websites of organic brands you buy, as some companies offer coupons through their website.
