These days money is tight, for almost everyone. We have all heard the phrase ‘ Not in this economy” one to many times. However, I’m starting to re-evaluate what I would spend more on to be green or natural.
Monday when Mac and I were food shopping we discussed a few things we wanted to buy natural if it wasn’t ‘crazy expensive.’ The top of our list was eggs and chicken. We didn’t go full organic but we did go with hormone free no additives chicken and hormone free, vegetarian feed, free range eggs. The chicken was on sale so it was the same price as normal but a 1/2 lb less that was pretty easy to swallow. The eggs were harder first of we wanted grass fed not grain fed but we couldn’t find any 🙁 bummer. Then the ones we did find were $3.10 more that their counter part. We decided to go for it though, we are trying to eat more at home so in the end if we cut out some restaurants then we still come out ahead.
We are going to build up in stages buying better food, as we eat out less we will be able to afford more natural and organic food items. Most of the time I already use greener/natural cleaning supplies so that won’t be a big change.
How about you would you pay more for green/natural foods and cleaners?
