Organic or conventional?

Here's a helpful link if you, like me, find yourself making choices about when to spend the extra dough on organic fruits and veggies. Stretch those organic dollars by knowing which conventional foods have the least amount of pesticide present. Take a peak at the Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen!

Thanks Mandy! I've really noticed that I've gotten out of hand lately with the organic stuff. Our grocery bill has gradually risen to a point that we can't maintain anymore and I've been doing some research of my own to find out what are the most important of organic purchases. This helps a lot.

No problem, Bethy! It's the same for me. I ALWAYS go over budget on groceries.

I should add that we buy organic milk, chicken, and beef too. I'm sure you know the importance of all of that though. We still buy conventional pork, but I'm looking at purchasing that from a local farm as that seems to be the only other option (and my child LOVES pork chops).

The thing that I haven't made the switch on is cheese. Organic cheese is SO expensive. I'm still mulling that one over.
