No. I only buy organic if its cheaper. I shop at our local farmers market year round and buy those that are in season. Dh would have a cow if I came home with a cart load of organic! Lol

I shop organic stuff that I know is important and line it up with what is on clearance or on sale! I shop between 2-3 different stores so I can usually find something that I need organic on sale
