Only for certain foods and even then it depends on the price difference.

Sometimes, I try to. I am pretty blessed to get a low income discount at my local organic food store.

For some things, like grapes and apples, I will try to buy organic, but the label that's most important to me is "local."

No, not really it can get very expensive and we just cannot afford it.

As much as I can afford. Mostly fruit and veggies.

No, just because I don't think it matters whether or not it's organic, or even "all natural".

We have our own garden during te right season, so it becomes hard after the supply runs out, but yes I try to get organic everytime.

It doesn't matter to me if it's organic or not...at all. And I'm not paying more money for something like that.

Try to buy local first, most local is organic.

I don't because I'm not a healthy eater most of the time so I can't justify paying a bit more for organic products when I'm just going to eat unhealthy foods most of the time. But when I get myself together, I do plan to try to go the organic route.

Yes, my husband is a health nut and in the medical field, so he swears by organic food. We'd buy all organic, but we've still got a lot of student loans.

I try and buy organic when I can. I also try and buy as much local produce/meat as I can. I feel better knowing that it was organically grown/raised. If there is a large price difference I will weigh what type of produce it is, etc. I'm incredibly lucky because we have a huge farmers' market near our house where I get some great deals.

I often do. We do a lot of gardening, and we use no chemicals in our garden. I also buy organic when I can. The price difference here (Chicago) isn't as large as it was 10 or even 5 years ago, between organic and "regular" produce and meat.

I find some of the meat seems not as fresh, though. As it is more expensive, it may sit longer. But, the organic fruits, veggies, grains and cereals are wonderful!

We don't eat much dairy, but I do buy non rBGH butter. That stuff is nasty.

Chemicals that kill insects and "weeds" do tend to wind up in our bodies, even if we are careful, and I prefer to eat as little pesticide as possible. I even have the mosquito sprayers call me before they come and turn off their sprayers in the front and back of our property. (It spans two streets.) They often forget, and I have to talk to some moron at the township office, who is usually clueless. Our properties are SO deep that spraying does no good here. Plus, my kids used to get asthma attacks when they would spray when my kids were little. I still shut the windows and don't open the doors for hours after they spray that crap.
