I am a big believer of organic food, have been eating it since my Italian dad grew them when I was a kid. I occasionally buy conventional but the majority is organic. It is more nutritious, more tasty, and more importantly it is free of pesticides and fertilizers which accumulate in your body. I have done my research and will not take any chances. My son has grown up on organic food and has been healthy all the way through his childhood. I am lucky though I have a good supplier of organic fruit and veg who buys it direct from the markets and we order every week so she knows how much to order and keeps prices down as much as possible. Organic food in the supermarket is not as fresh and cost a lot more. I also buy dry goods organic online direct from farmers and other good online stores, buy in bulk to save money. It is worth it for me because I am on a whole food plant based diet and save money not buying meat and processed packaged foods. It always gets me that people complain about prices of food and then go and spend money on other luxuries or the latest iphone or go out for meals on a regular basis which costs a lot more and is not as healthy.
