Bountiful baskets

jkl 006

Okay I have been wanting to try this for a while. I heard about Bountiful Baskets last year when my husband was working out of town. Some girls I met at the library in Page told me about it. I got on Bountiful Baskets website and checked to see if they did this in my area. At the time they didn’t so I was a little bummed. Then a month ago or so I was reading You and Me Plus Three’s blog and she was talking about Bountiful Baskets. She also gives you tips on how to get ready for your basket. So I looked again on there website, and it was in my town! It grew a bunch since last year. So this last weekend I picked up my fist basket. Iv got to say I was impressed. And I am a nerd so I wrote down everything I got in my basket and went to the grocery store and checked prices to see how much I was saving buy getting this basket. The basket is 16.50 all together with the handling fee. The total at the store was 36.55 so I'm saving  more than half by getting the basket. I'm going to list all the stuff I got so you will be as excited as I am. O and I will post the grocery stores prices.
