Totally unrelated 2

Yes again talking about something totally unrelated to crafting but something that is keeping me excited this days. It is about shopping wise, what? yes shopping but in a different way. I am always looking for ways to get more for my bucks and to do so I have try many things. Last April when Monika came to visit I asked her to teach me how to do the coupon-ing she is amazing on that you can visit her blog and see the crazy things she gets for almost nothing.
She gave me a few websites that I found very helpful like this, and this, and this one too. I found that my local news paper has this gal called the savvy shopper and is totally local I love it!. I am learning lots about coupons and the best way to use them. One rule she said is always buy on sale and better if using coupons, never pay full price. I am still working on it but when I see that I save $40 to $80 on my trips I start liking the coupon thing.
Besides coupons which they do not offer much produce options anyway Darlette told me about a co-op program that is getting very popular in the west part of the country called Bountiful Baskets
It is an amazing program basically you pay $15 and they give you $50 worth of produce %50 fruits and %50 vegetables. It is amazing, last Saturday I went to pickup mine and here is the picture of what I got: Fruits: Bananas, apples, strawberries, plums, melon, and grapes.
Vegetables: Chard, lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, onions, and carrots.
All for just $15, all the produce is first grade and wonderful to work with. So this is my totally unrelated post of the day.

Make it a great day!
