My husband and I have decided to start a new challenge next month. I am very excited about it – and very nervous as well!
For the entire month of June, we plan to only purchase organic groceries. We are sticking to the same grocery budget that we currently have for groceries, which is $400 monthly.
This challenge is going to include all groceries – not just food and beverages.
Grocery Items Included:
- Household Items
- Health & Beauty Items
- Pet Items
- Baby Items
- Food & Beverages
Those are the items we regularly purchase with our grocery budget, so we are going to stick to the same list for our organics challenge.
However, I don’t think we will be purchasing many household, health, beauty or baby items, because we already have quite a few of those in our stockpile.
I will still be shopping for “regular” groceries, but am only be allowed to pick them up if they are free (not including taxes). There is a maximum budget of $20 to cover these taxes.
We will also be allowing ourselves to eat non-organic foods if they are already in our stockpile.
I’m really looking forward to shopping for organic items and seeing if I am able to feed our family the same types of foods for the same amount of money we currently spend.
Throughout the month, I will be sharing our grocery shopping deals, as well as posting articles about purchasing organic groceries.
If you currently buy organic groceries, do you have any advice for us?
