P is For Produce On A Budget

P is For Produce 

Produce is rarely purchased online, but it can be purchased at amazing deals every week! And, there are places to buy produce online if that is your preference. Here is an entire post about getting your produce fresh, and nearly free!

Bountiful Baskets
For those of you who have not yet heard about the Bountiful Baskets Co-Op group, you're missing out. Register with this amazing co-op and find a pick up location near you. After you do that you'll be able to order a basket of fresh fruits and vegetables every Monday through Tuesday at noon, and pick up your basket on Saturday morning (at most locations). This is literally a laundry basket of fresh produce for the price of a bag of oranges! For about $15.00 you will get a huge variety of produce you can enjoy all week long! I was skeptical at first as to just how good it could but but I will vouch for Bountiful Baskets being the number one best produce deal on the market at the moment! I would recommend it to everyone!

Farmer's Market Online
This amazing website offers it's users the option of selecting from dozens of categories to fine home grown, organic, and green options for produce, meat, dairy and more! Pick and choose your items just as you would at a live Farmer's Market! Although there is a farmer's market not far from our home here in Utah, it is seasonal and only runs about 5 months of the year. The rest of the time I rely on Bountiful Baskets and this online farmer's market to continue to feed my family the best produce on the market. It's worth a look and more than worth the money.

Amazon Grocery
Although not always the cheapest they often have amazing deals if you watch for them! They also offer coupons right on many of the pages, and watch your favorite magazines for additional coupons! Magazines such as Parents Magazine, All You, and other's offer Amazon coupons from time to time!  Amazon offers two pages to select groceries from Natural & Organic and Grocery & Gourmet Food which will be delivered fresh in just a few days. If you are an Amazon Prime member you can receive FREE 2-Day Shipping on any item marked "Prime" with no minimum purchase. Other Amazon orders (not from Amazon Members) will ship free Ground with a minimum $25 order.
