Also, one factor to consider is that many of the mamas that post on the frugality and finance section are not particularly low-income. So there are a number of people discussing how to make organic/healthy shopping as frugal as possible it would seem. I would put me in that number- we do shop for the most part for organics but we are one small family on a pretty decent income. If we had many more mouths to feed or a lower income, we would not really be able to do that. In fact I fully intend to prune out some organics when we have a larger family unless our income rises before our family grows. We have lived off of less for groceries and then we did less organics. I will say that we have never had to go without produce and a relatively balanced meal but the least we have ever had to spend in a week for groceries is $50is or so dollars and we live near some cheap sources for produce.
