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!

Bountiful Baskets (fruit/veggie co-op) is getting bigger!

If you've never tried a co-op before they are really great! I just started in March of this year and have been very happy with all the produce I've been able to get for $15.00. I always walk away with between 30 and 40lbs of fruits and veggies! Quite a deal for $15.00, if you ask me.

Here is a list of sites that have now opened up:

Bountiful: 75 East 200 North - University of Utah Extension south lot-11:00 am

Brigham City: Honeyville Grain Store -9:30 am

Brigham City: Main/South - Mountain View Elementary -9:00 am

Clearfield: Vine/East Kiwanis Park - 9:30 am

Kaysville: N Main St/E 100 N- Behind library/city offices - 10:00 am

Ogden: Monroe Blvd/2nd St - Bonneville Park - 7:00 am

Pleasant View: 520 W Elberta - Barker Park - 8:30 am

Roy: 4200 S/1900 W - George Wahlen North Park - 7:00 am

South Ogden: Adams Ave Pkwy/S 500 E - Weber School Dist office - 7:00 am

West Haven: 4385 South 3900 West - 7:00 am

West Point: 300 N/3500 W - West Point Park - 8:00 am

If this sounds like something you'd like to do - NOW is the time to order. Here's a few quick steps to ordering.
1 - Click on this link to get you to Bountiful Baskets website to order
2 - Just below LOG IN you will see the Arizona and Utah sites. Choose Arizona or Utah.
3 - A screen will pop up asking you questions. You must pick from the drop down box. It won't let you out until you've selected an answer to each item.
4 - Click on Add to Cart
5 - Scroll back up the page and click on the Checkout button (upper left)
6 - Fill in your shipping info (it will always be for pick up - I'm not sure why they ask for a shipping address)
7 - Click Next and agree to the conditions on the next screen.
8 - Look at the summary of your order to make sure it is correct, add your Mastercard/Visa # and Submit.
9- Print a copy of your order summary and make sure to bring it with you on Saturday.
If you are a first timer, know that you will pay an additional $3.00 for the baskets. Make sure to bring your own basket to bring your fruits and veggies home in though. The baskets you are paying for stay at the site to be used each time.
You can read through some of my old posts regarding Bountiful Baskets by scrolling down the screen (look to the right) and click on Bountiful Baskets. I've taken pictures of some of my past pick ups.
This co-op is every 2 weeks. This next Saturday (7/25) is a pickup date. The ordering always occurs the Tuesday prior to the pick up (making today the order day 7/21).
I signed up for the West Point site - make sure you try to arrive an hour early to help out! Maybe I'll see you there!

I live down in Pleasant Grove, UT and I wasn't aware of a vegetable co-op in Bountiful. I will have to take advantage of it. You said in your blog you like to know of great online resources for gift giving. If you want to send the best fruit baskets and even save money you can visit Fruit Basket Review Fruit Basket Review.which directs online shoppers to the best edible arrangements online and provides valuable fruit basket discount, coupon, and promotional codes.

Tracie!!!! That's great that you saved almost half. You'll have to take a pic another time. Did you get set up with papers again? Have you read about the Valassis/Redplum coupons getting pulled out of the Utah papers? I'm going to post about that in the next day or so.

Jared - thanks for the tip. I'll definately take a look at that site. Thanks for checking out my blog. You should try out the co-op. It's slowly growing South.
