When should you buy organic?

I worry about chemicals and pesticides and all that other junk that is added to our fruits and veggies, especially now since Caleb has started eating food.  But, if you are on a budget, buying everything organic can end with a daunting price tag. If you visit you can find a full list of the produce that has the highest amount of pesticides.  If your pocket book won't let you buy everything organic, this list will help you figure out which organic ones you should not scrimp on and which ones won't be a big deal if you don't buy organic.  Here is a quick list of some of the worst and best:
Worst- peaches, apples, nectarines, strawberries and celery
Best- Onion, avacado, pineapple, mango, asparagus

When my girls were babies I worried a lot about the high fructose corn syrups and hydrogenated oils added to some things like teething biscuits, and crackers... I always bought the organic types of those.
