Do you buy organic or locally grown produce, or go for the best price?

Would you pay more for healthier food? Do you buy locally grown vegetables and fruits or get the cheapest ones? Or doesn't it matter to you where the food comes from or how it was grown?

    I love organic but the price turns me off.

    so some things organic like

    milk

    eggs

    beef

    tomatos

    spinach

    bell peppers

    and other things not unless they are on sale

    btw

    organic milk lasts way longer than regular milk and therefore in our house where it often sits in the fridge a week or two its a better deal 'cause we dont have to throw it out

    I've never heard that buying local items other than food is good for the environment, but maybe it's better for the economy? I don't live in the USA so I wouldn't be able to help you out there, but I don't suggest making your own soap. My friend did it and it did not turn out well :)

    I buy organic, and pay the higher price (but all foods that say they are organic are not always 100% organic)

    Locally grown if available, otherwise best price.
