What? No Coupons! is a series I write here at The Frugalette all about ways to save without clipping one coupon. Let’s face it, even the most extreme couponer needs to stop clipping sometimes to give their hands a break. Also, there are a lot of products that just don’t come with a coupon, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tips that will help you save big!
I get asked a lot about how to save in the produce section. It can be a money pit if you just grab and go. Also, as more and more people want to buy organic, these tips will help stretch your organic dollars further. According to the Environmental Working Group there is a group of conventional fruits and veggies that contain the least amount of pesticide residue.
Many of these have either a thick rind you discard or a strong odor that naturally fends off pests! Print this list and keep it with you next time you are trying to decide if buying organic is worth it or not.
- Sweet Peas
- Sweet Potatoes
Bottom line: Prioritize your organic purchases and save your money on organic produce with higher counts of pesticides!
