Welcome The Thrifty Mama Readers

Hellooooo The Thrifty Mama readers! Welcome to Kosher on a Budget!

I was so honored when my online friend Crystal, from The Thrifty Mama, asked me to guest post for her today about creating margin in your budget for organic food. (KOAB regulars – I’d love for you to check it out, too!)

Finding margin is something my family has become quite adept at in the last three years – between the high cost of kosher meat and cheese, and the rising price of organic produce, we nonetheless do our best to fit it all in!

Crystal is one of my absolute favorite frugal bloggers – especially since we share a commitment to healthy eating. I know that many of you clicking over today from her blog probably aren’t kosher-keeping (or even Jewish), but please feel more than welcome to stick around.

You might notice that many of my posts right now are related to Passover – since that holiday is coming up in just two weeks! – but KOAB also has lots of healthy living tips and deals that you might be interested in, too.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi! I found your blog this afternoon from Thrifty Mama.

  2. I just picked up a quick little fact about organic and genetically modified produce from Vegetarian Times magazine. When buying fresh produce, check the little sticker with an ID number on the fruit or vegetable. If the code on the sticker starts with a 9 it is organic. If it starts with an 8 it has been genetically modified.

  3. Thanks for the article. Most helpful. Something to strive for!
