DS *loves* Nancy's raspberry yogurt. But I feel so guilty buying. For eight ounces of yogurt there is the yogurt carton, then the smaller carton that holds the fruit. So, two cartons and a lid each time he wants yogurt!?!?!

But yeah, it's hard to find most organics in big enough sizes to feed your family for a week. I end up shopping two or three times a week.

For example, we only buy the yogurts that come in the 32oz tubs.
I don't buy ready-made breakfast patties, or veggie burgers, or even canned beans. I buy dried beans that come in a plastic bag, and cook them myself. I don't buy any packaged "rice mixes" or boxed macaroni and cheese. I buy the basic ingredients and do a lot of cooking from scratch.
