+Creativebug True! I do think I'll pick up one of those wrist tape dispensers. That looked like it would help.

Introduction

Hi! I'm Andrea Green, an eco-friendly mother of two who loves to bake, enjoys a hot cup of tea,is fond of gardening, and who believes in living the green lifestyle.

The one thing I despise is paying more for organic groceries.

In 2010 I learned about shopping with coupons. Saving 50% to 90% each week at the grocery store sounded exactly like what our family needed. After all, it was in 2010 that we went from two incomes to one.

What I didn't love about coupons: they all seemed to be for processed food.

Feeding my family organic, whole food is a priority for me.

I figured if I wanted to save on organic, whole foods for my family, surely others would too. That's why I started The Greenbacks Gal.

Do you think it's impossible to save on organic, healthy food?

The Greenbacks Gal has helped a community of over 5,500 people save each week and turned them into "savvy shoppers."

What if you don't have a convenient resource for organic groceries? Where do you shop and how do you make it affordable?

Since The Greenbacks Gal readers are all over the country, I try to find deals that everyone can use. I research deals at warehouse stores like Costco, use online resources like Amazon or Vitacost, and show how you can save even if you do shop Whole Foods Market for groceries.

These are real resources you can really use!

While buying healthy groceries is important, it is only half the battle. As a busy mom of two active teens, I am always looking for healthy, whole food recipes.

The recipes you'll find on this site have to fit my criteria: quick, healthy, and made from whole foods.

I love when I share a recipe that others can't wait to try.  That means I've helped another family deliver a healthy, wholesome meal to the table.

If you are looking for a community of people who believe in buying organic, who want to live more "green", who have limited time and limited resources, You are in the right place!

There is only one rule:

Superwomen need not apply!

Everyone needs a few shortcuts. In an effort to share the shortcuts I've found, I started The GBG It Works for Me! It's full of tips, tricks, do-it-yourself projects and shortcuts everyone can use.
