Wow, so I have so not been good at posting deals lately! Sorry! I hope you have been having fun and success with coupons and deals. I have been wanting to post about this for a little while, but wanted to try it out first, to see if it was indeed a good deal. Well, let me tell you IT IS! Bountiful Baskets is a Food Co-op that was started in Arizona, spread to Utah and now has hit Idaho. How it works is you make a contribution of $15.00 for a basket of food (Usually six vegetable items and six fruit items.) The first time you order there is a $3.00 extra fee, but that is only on your first time. The food is bought in bulk, so you get more food for your money, and the food is way more fresh than what you find in stores, Though some of the fruit still needs a day or two to fully ripen. I got this basket today, and it had

Red Chard
Grape tomatoes

Everything that is pictured cost me just $15.00 plus my $3.00 fee for first time. So worth every penny! If you are interested you go to and there is a spot where they explain how it works. Essentially, you purchase your basket between Monday and Tuesday and then you pick it up on Saturday at the pick-up spot you choose when ordering. There are several spots around Idaho Falls to choose from, I got mine at Sandcreek Middle school. The only catch is that they only have a certain number of baskets to purchase each week, and when they are gone they are gone. The purchase time starts at 7:00 on Monday night, so it is best to get on early and order. Good Luck! It is so worth it.


  1. Are you going to eat all that? Half those things look like things you don't like!!! :) You'll have to let me know how it goes!

  2. Probably not me, but my Husband will! He actually made a stir-fry today with the mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, and red chard. It was actually not to bad! As for the fruit, the melon was AWESOME! Tarek at most of it, the same with the Blackberries. In fact, after eating the blackberries, Dan and Tarek went and bought some plants to put in our yard of Blackberries. So yea, I think most of it will get eaten!

  3. Court! I just looked up to see if there was one close to me and... there is! Im super excited about this because I really want to try and make one of those edible bouquets for my mother in law for mothers day. Mostly I just wanted an excuse to make one and now... cheap fruit :)

  4. That's a great idea! I had no idea that it went clear up there, so that is awesome! We LOVE IT! and have gotten one every week for four weeks now. I have yet to be disappointed
