#CreditChat Wednesdays | 3 p.m. ET What are some expensive mistakes you can make when buying healthy foods?

Don’t buy something just because it says organic. Look at the ingredients and avoid too many packaged foods. Southeast Financial @SFCUNews #CreditChat Wednesdays | 3 p.m. ET

Buying too much and letting the food go to waste. Even if it’s a good deal, only buy what you need. CordiaGrad @CordiaGrad #CreditChat Wednesdays | 3 p.m. ET


Slide 35

Buying all organic all the time is expensive. Minimize costs by buying organic for what you eat most. Alexandria Cummings @UrMoneyMentor #CreditChat Wednesdays | 3 p.m. ET

Buying foods that are not in season - usually not the best anyway. It’s not time to make a watermelon salad! Debt Free Guys @DebtFreeGuys #CreditChat Wednesdays | 3 p.m. ET


Slide 37

Falling for the “organic” or “non GMO” labels. Sometimes you’re better off just being aware of the additional ingredients. Gabby Knows @gabbyknows #CreditChat Wednesdays | 3 p.m. ET
