Where to start - organic food or chemical free home?
Reading a lot of articles lately has really started to get to me. So I'm committing to getting our family to fully ogranic foods and a chemical free home. But I'm at a loss for where to start. We don't make a ton of money (<$50k family of 4 in Chicago area), as we decided that having a parent home with the kids is very important. So which transition makes sense to do first? I feel like switching to natural cleaning products - clothes, soaps, dishes, floors, etc would be fairly easy and not exorbitantly expensive. But food is overwhelming to me because of the jump in price. Going from $1/dozen to $5/dozen for eggs, double or triple prices for everything else - fruits, veggies, meats. I've always been very careful with my money so the idea of increasing a budget area by a large amount is scary.
So, where would you start?
