Eating less meat should be on the top of your priority list when it comes to filling the larder/pantry.  Meat does get Organic Certification. This protects you but also improves the lifestyle of the meat animals. That lifestyle also provides great benefits in the food itself as a result.

Meat is not cheap so consider strongly making vegetables the centerpiece of your meals. By no means do you have to eliminate meat. When it is used as a compliment the health quotient of the meal goes up. Consider taking cuts that require longer cooking which become tastier with the time. Taste and nutrition is what Organic Lifestyle Food is all about.

4. Be a Bulk Buyer | Organic Lifestyle Food on a Budget

No matter what it is you most likely will get it cheaper if you buy in Bulk. It is the best way to reduce your costs of Organic Lifestyle Food.

Buy pastas, dried foods and vegetables that have a long life like potatoes and onions.  Buying whole beef, & other meats butchered will provide the best price and a new relationship. Freeze them strategically in portions knowing there will be defrosting in the future, holidays etc.

5. No packaged Foods – Cook from Scratch

 The Organic Lifestyle Foods are most economical when cooking from scratch. Convenience foods are more expensive than cooking raw ingredients from scratch. Be selective when choosing your ingredients and use them sparingly.
 
I like to cook extra portions of food that I can eat for lunch the next day or freeze for use in the future. This is not only more economical it is also saves a ton of time which in turn reduces stress.
 
When designing a new meal design try it out first before planning to save for extra portions or freezing. Some do it every other meal, or try what works for you till you get in a groove.

6. Be a Smart Shopper | Organic Lifestyle Food on a Budget

If you are shopping for Organic food the store thinks you are rich for some reason. Certainly it is considered a premium product and the stores charge accordingly. Simply, if they are guilty of this avoid them is possible.  Supermarkets will generally make prices available for you online and you can do some comparison shopping
Note down the cost of the products you normally buy. and price check them with online organic shops, farmers markets and natural/organic grocers  to get the best price.

 7. Conserve – Avoid Waste

Food costs money and wasting it costs you hard earned money while not being diligent with the resources you have. Statistics show the average household wastes 20-30% of their food. Over buying, not managing the process, and not storing properly. Now that we are buying Organic in many cases they look at food as more valuable and change some habits. You are putting more of your budget protecting your health & lifestyle with Organic Food.  Develop a plan of rotation of the food and always do your meal planning around ingredients that need to be used up, etc. Do like they do at the store and keep fronting your refrigerator/pantry putting the oldest items in the front. Keep those items in mind when it is time to cook.

 8. Join a local CSA – Local Harvest

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal produce directly from a farmer in their community. It is basically a farm share. A farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public.

One increasingly common one is the “mix and match,” or “market-style” CSA.  They  aren’t confined to produce. Some farmers include the option for shareholders to buy shares of eggs, homemade bread, meat, cheese, fruit, flowers or other farm products along with their veggies.

A “Farm Share” is a simple idea (very much like buying a magazine subscription) in which a “Member” buys a “Share” of a farmer’s harvest at the beginning of the growing season, and then comes to the farm each week to pick up their “Share” of the farm’s vegetable harvest or that share is bagged or boxed and delivered to agreed upon location.

9. Create an organic buying group or Co-op Club

Together with other people interested in buying organic produce and set up a co-op. OrganicMarket – is a good connection & learning resource on Facebook.

This is from the Organics Consumer Association which provides discounts for the organic and building community. This will give you buying power, as you will have a larger spend. It will also allow you to buy from co-operative wholesalers. Co-ops are a really resilient model for business and working together that can also save you money as an individual.
