About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

A hearty basket this week

I'm a few days late in posting what I got from my co-op, Bountiful Baskets. I was truly impressed with the quantity this time. I got there early to help distribute and we had so much stuff that it took us until about 7:20 am before we were ready for everyone to start picking up their baskets. They usually start picking them up at 7:00 am.
Anyway here's what we got this week.
16 bananas

8 oranges

3 yellow squash

2 broccoli

1 celery

2 bags of carrots

12 apricots

1 head of romaine lettuce

2 small cantaloupes

7 apples

8 cucumbers

9 plums

I think this basket easily weighed between 35 and 40 lbs. It was quite heavy. I also bought the following:

1, 16lb box of cherries

5 loaves of Honey Wheat bread

So far the cherries have been hit and miss. They are either just right or kinda squishy and some are bland. I guess that's what you get from the store too. I think I'm going to freeze a bunch of them. The bread has been wonderful though. I just can't say enough good things about the bread. I'm really glad I bought some.

That is a ton of stuff. How cool.
Your blog is still tweeked by the way, I don't know why but everything is still on top of each other. You may have to go in and replace things to where you want them. Mine went weird 1 time and I had to do something to it too.
