The Dirty Dozen!

When I started eating clean, I was overwhelmed with the cost of my groceries. Since we were no longer saving money by purchasing foods with filler ingredients, buying the same amount cost more. For me, it was totally worth it! And since we don't eat out but once in a blue moon, our overall food expense is the same. We are so much healthier for it! So here is a way I save money on my groceries if my budget doesn't allow all organic produce:
