Are you an organic mother.

I am not. I don't feed my children organic foods. To buy organic is expensive, Yes my kids are important, but I would spend to much on buying organic. I just rinse the fruits and veggies properly. I have a cousin who is an organic mother. Her child's cloths, bath soap(lotion and all that stuff) along with food is all organic. We tease her about it, but I do respect her for wanting a healthier lifestyle for her child.

  • No. I do buy organic produce when it's on sale, but otherwise I don't.

  • Organic is normally highly over rated anyways. It's just a money making business.

  • Nope. I respect organic mothers, but that is not a choice that feasibly fits my budget/circumstances, so I'm not.

  • I'm mostly organic yes.....if done correctly and if you shop at Farmers Markets and local farmers who practice organic farming you can actually SAVE money rather than it costing more. And Yes I make my own cleaners, detergents, deodorants, toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, etc etc....If I make something like shampoo it costs about $2 to make and lasts about 6 months. Laundry detergent costs me about $3 to make and lasts 6 months.

  • Somewhat - I grow a huge garden organically, the only farmers market around here just happens to be mainly organic farmers, and we have farmers we buy our meat from that raise the animals organically - same cost as non-organic meat too. Beyond that, nope.
