Fresh Produce for Less
I've always wished it wasn't so expensive to buy fresh produce, it's been discouraging to me that we live in a place where it is cheaper to buy junk food than to support farmers and eat food that is actually good for us. That's when a friend told me about Bountiful Baskets. This has been a teriffic find for me. It's a co-op where you can order a basket full of fresh produce for only $15. It's based off of an idea of community where each participant agrees to volunteer every 6-8 weeks to help keep the operation up and running. It can be a pretty fun and exciting experience to pick up your first basket and volunteering isn't too difficult. I would even describe it as an exciting community event. If you are interested in getting your bountiful basket, check it out here. They don't supply in every state, but they list the locations on their website.
