My house is like an Organic Wonderland.

Having been early adopters of the organic movement, my family and I – we’ve got it all.

The canned tomatoes, the haloumi cheese, the beef mince. Even our fake tan is organic or it’s binned. We have not yet adopted organic water or clothing but I am guessing that it’s only a matter of time.

So it was interesting when I stumbled across this list of the 15 things you don’t actually need to buy organic. Have a flick through and take notes for your shopping list – your wallet will thank you.

Onions don't see as many pest threats, which means less pesticide spraying.

Do you buy organic food? What do you think should and shouldn’t be bought organic?
