A Tisket A Tasket A Bountiful BasketPosted: December 11, 2011
I finished my food storage challenge the end of September with mixed success and for the past couple of months have reverted back to some old habits, too much dining out and too few veggies in the diet. So last week I decided it was time for bountiful baskets again and another three month challenge to myself.
My favorite tools are, I Dare You Too Eat It and Bountiful Baskets. Once again I’ll be stocking my pantry for three months, which will be much easier this time around. And beginning January 10th and ending March 10th, there will be no trips to the grocery store and one trip to the bountiful basket drop off every week.
This week I spent $25.00 for a bountiful basket, $15.00 for regular and $8.50 for a Mexican pack of extra veggies. This is what was in it; 1 pineapple, 2 butternut squashes, 1 romaine lettuce, 1 bunch asparagus, 2 cucumbers (gave them to my mother-in-law), 5 pears, 5 apples, 1 bunch bananas, 1 bunch grapes, 6 limes, 3 onions, 1 head garlic, 1 bunch green onions, 7 tomatillos, 6 tomatoes, 7 anaheim chillies, a bunch of jalapenos, and a bunch of cilantro. As always you never know what you’ll get, but I’m very pleased with this weeks offering and I think I got a pretty good deal!
P.S. Anyone who would like to join me in my food storage adventure is quite welcome. It’s really kind of fun and saves lots of money! Even if you only do it for three days, it can be a good learning experience.
