Not just Vegan...but Organic Vegan?

Who here is not only a vegan, but does one's best to also buy only organic products? I know people are vegan for different reasons (ethics, health, environment, etc), and I know vegans for whom organics don't mean anything. But the pesticide issue raises issues with all three: ethics, health, and environment, and so I would appreciate your participation in the poll above.

If money was no object, I would pay another vegan to grow all of my food in my backyard organically. Without a till.

Probably I would get them to cook it too. And tidy up the dishes. And rub my feet while I watch TV.

But since money is an object, I skew towards organic but am often tempered with budgetary concerns (ie. I am cheap) that see me go for the non-organic option.

I sometimes buy five to ten cans of beans a week, and the organic beans cost $1.30 more. A lot of things like that add up over the course of a year.

Maybe I should just pay somebody to guilt me into buying organic.

Organic means more expensive, and not something I can afford. I've also heard that organic doesn't always mean it's better.
I never buy organic corn, because every time I have, it has tasted bad in some parts. There is a quality-control issue, for sure. I wish that money were no object, as Jeezy Creezy says, so that I could have my own veganic plantation.
If money was not an issue, I'd surely have better things to spend that money on, such as causes that affect animals in a more direct way.
If money was no object, I would have an organic garden growing different types of vegetables and fruits. I will also have a vegan chef to do all of my cooking.
If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you furniture for your house. Maybe a nice chesterfield or an ottoman.
Corn is something I definitely only buy organic, or assured to be GMO-free. Genetically modified strains of corn are commonly grown these days, and I don't really want to eat that.
