Bountiful Baskets

Bountiful Baskets is my new favorite thing. It is basically a co-op service where you can pay $15 a week to get tons of fresh fruits and veggies! You can also pay $10 extra for an all organic basket. These baskets are offered all over the country so seriously check out your state to see if there is a location near you! It is also all volunteer run which is awesome. There is a $3 charge for your first basket but you never have to pay that again if you order 100 times or never again. That is one thing that is really appealing about Bountiful baskets to me, that you can buy whenever you want and there is no penalty. The pick ups are on Saturdays at all different times depending on your location, mine was at 11:30 am. 

The veggies I recieved were 5 ears of corn, 2 bunches of lettuce, 3 bell peppers, a bunch of asparagus, a bad of cherry tomatoes, and a bag of peas. 

The fruits were 2 cantaloupes, a mango, 4 bananas, and 6 oranges. 

I definitely got my $15 worth! Another thing is to be sure and bring your own bags/boxes/crates or whatever you want because the baskets they put the produce in are reused every week. There are also different add on packs that you can choose from like a guacamole pack and they also offer breads and granola. Go check this out right now and order if they are in your area!!
