Moms everywhere know how shocking it is to have just a few items in our grocery cart ring up for $85 in the checkout line. There was a day when I could walk out of the store with two weeks’ worth of groceries for that much! So, how are we supposed to feed our families healthy, organic, non-GMO, whole-food items on a budget? Often times it’s a matter of priorities. You’ve seen the meme about how the same people who don’t bat an eye at spending $5.50 on a white chocolate mocha latte have a cow when faced with the option of purchasing a dozen organic, free-range chicken eggs for the same price. I used to think that way, too.

Let these helpful, gentle tips guide you the next time you make out your grocery list. Even a slow-change by incorporating just one or two of these tips may set you in a direction you’ve been longing to take.
