This is a sample from our $15 conventional basket last time!

We haven’t mentioned this nationwide produce option for a while and so since we placed our next order today, we thought it was a perfect time to remind you and show you what we got!
We grabbed our basket of 50% fruit and 50% veggies for $25, but also this additional item:

  • 12 6oz. clam shell packs of Blackberries for $17.  This is $1.42 each package, which is a great price.  They are $2.99 – $3.99 for regular blackberries in our local grocery stores. I plan to freeze these as well!  We grabbed 2 of these for 24 total!

Blueberries are really easy to freeze and work well from frozen for the many purposes that we use them for…. of course after each a few containers fresh.

Anyway, that was the big thing we are excited about!

Our total was a bit more than normal, but stocking up on Blueberries and Organic produce for a great price is awesome!

We will be picking this order up on Saturday!

Have you gotten any of these before?

If you want to see if they are available in your area too, then…

Head to Bountiful Baskets HERE and choose your state and then a pick-up location closest to you from the drop-down menu.

If Bountiful Baskets is not in your state yet, either contact them to see what they need to start one or keep watching for them to open up in your state too! They are rapidly growing and rapidly opening other states.  We have been fortunate to have been the first state and so we have been able to do this for quite some time!

*Please note, you only have until tomorrow night (Tuesday, May 13th) at 10pm PST to order your produce for this week for pick-up on Saturday at a local location!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

They sell foods, household items and personal care items made from their famous coconut oil! 

As promised and as requested by many of you, you asked for us to let you know when Tropical Traditions has their FREE shipping sale (as many of us don’t like paying for shipping :))! Well, you can take advantage of the free shipping today! This is for today, Monday, February 24th, 2014 only. So today may be a good day to cash in on some healthy, natural and organic grocery options – they will arrive to your door for free :)

Along with the Free Shipping days, they will also have sales.  These are the items that we grab during the free shipping sales because we basically get a double discount! 

With that, their most popular product – coconut oil- is on sale right now! You can get the 16 oz. jar of pure coconut oil for $7.99!

pure-coconut-oiltt

They have many different types of coconut oils on sale this week, but the best sale is on the pure form. The $7.99 price is a nice price if you have been wanting to give a version of their coconut oils a try!

Another product that I love of theirs is the Oxygen Bleach, which is 50% off for 6lbs of powder!   This is a natural and color-safe bleach alternative and it does a very good effective job, and then I am not using harsh bleach.  This is a great price and it usually lasts me around 7-8 months.  It is in a very large tub with 6lbs. of powdered bleach alternative.  I mentioned how I pretty much make all of my homemade cleaning products (and you can too, read-up HERE on making 26 Natural Homemade Cleaning Products), but bleach is one thing that I have been buying a natural option for.

Anyway, these are just two of the many products that they have and they do have many sales going on right now. If you have been wanting to try anything they sell or need refills of anything, today is the day to get it!

Bountiful Baskets Produce Co-Op Open For This Week: We Also Got Blackberries and Organic Tomatoes

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

by Cassie on February 3, 2014

bb-basket-jan132014

This is a sample from our $15 conventional basket a couple of weeks ago!

We just placed our produce order for pick-up on Saturday from our Bountiful Baskets produce co-op.

We skipped last week for Penniless Week, but we were so excited to see two additional offerings this week that are right up our alley!

We grabbed our basket of 50% fruit and 50% veggies, but also these two additional items:

  • 10 lb. box of Heirloom Organic Tomatoes (I will be canning and or freezing many for future use) for $12.74. This is $1.28 each lb., which is hard to get even regular tomatoes for this price in our area.
  • 12 6oz. clam shell packs of Blackberries for $14.25.  This is $1.19 each package, which is a great price.  They are $2.99 – $3.99 for regular blackberries in our local grocery stores. I plan to freeze these as well!

Our total was a bit more than normal, but stocking up on Blackberries and Organic Heirloom Tomatoes for a great price is awesome!

Our Bountiful Basket Pictures From Last Week’s Basket and What We Are Ordering for $34.50 This Week

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

by Cassie on January 13, 2014

bb-basket-jan132014

This is a sample from our $15 conventional basket last week!

As promised, we said we would share pictures of our produce co-op baskets and remind you to grab yours too! Well, it’s Monday and so that means that Bountiful Baskets is open for orders for fresh fruits and veggies at an affordable price.  They open mid-morning on Monday’s and are open until Tuesday night or until they sell out.  It is for orders that you pick up on Saturday mornings.

We wanted to share pics of what we got in our basket last week for $15.  You can see it all in the full picture above.

  • Pears
  • Mangoes
  • Red Peppers
  • Grapes
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Onions
  • Yellow Squash
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Broccoli
  • 3 lb. bag of apples

We also opted for the juicing pack that was $8.50 last week (and they are offering this again this week).

bb-jiuce-pack-jan132014

The $8.50 juicing pack included:

  • Ginger
  • Lemons
  • Parsley
  • Kale
  • Cucumber
  • Pineapple
  • Celery
  • Apples
  • Carrots

Last week, the two above pictures cost us $26.50 plus $2.50 for the handling fee.  Not a bad deal for that much fresh produce!

So this week, we usually budget $35 for our Bountiful Baskets produce each week.  They had 2 separate specialty baskets we wanted this week – the Italian Pack (we have gotten this many times and it is a GREAT pack!) and another juicing pack.  So we went for the $15 conventional basket instead of the $25 organic basket to make room in our budget for the yummy extras!
