Organic Grocery Stores
Buying organic food in Health Food Stores can be overwhelming if you are new to the whole organic movement.  I have a friend who recently drove almost an hour to Whole Foods for the first time and she found it to be really intimidating. 

Here are 3 tips to make your trip to the Organic Grocery Store a success!

TIP 1:  Price Shop
There is a big mark-up on Organic and Natural Food.  Prices can be marked up from to 250% for products on the shelves and up to 450% on produce!  I personally shop here, as I've found the prices to be quite a bit lower than all the Organic Grocery Stores in my area, and I get free shipping to my home...added bonus for a busy mom!

TIP 2:  Make a List
I try to figure out what I'm going to make for the week and make a list of everything we need.  I find if I don't have a list I sort of wander aimlessly and end up with a bunch of random things in my cart.  I think this was my friends issue last week, she went in not having anything in particular she wanted to buy so it's no wonder she was a bit intimidated.

TIP 3:  Try Something New
If you normally shop at conventional grocery stores you will probably find lots of things that you've never heard of before.  Don't be afraid to try new things!  Bring your children with you and let them pick out something, they will be more likely to try new foods if they picked them out.

Happy shopping!  Don't forget to check out this new Organic Grocery will thank me later :)
