Co-op's!

I participated in my first Co-op today and this is what I got:

1 Meat Share:
1 lb lean ground beef
2 lbs chicken drumsticks
4 6 oz cubed steaks
2 lbs pork sirloin roast

1 Produce Share:
bananas
5 pears
4 peaches
cauliflower
romaine lettuce
grape tomatoes
3 avocados
celery

It cost $24.  You pay a $5 lifetime membership fee when you join and your not required to do it every month.  They have tons of pick-up locations so we only had to go a couple blocks.  They also require you do 2 hours of volunteer work a month (meaning anything you do free for someone outside your family).  They ask that you volunteer with them for 2 hours a year.  Im very happy with what we got! Nothing has to be eaten right away, which I like. :)

My friend Cher participated with a different Co-op.  Here is her report. :):)


This is our First Bountiful Basket.

2 Lemons,10 Banana's, 8 Apples, 16 oz. Strawberries, 5 Oranges, 5 pounds Potatoes, 2 pounds Carrots, 1 bunch Broccoli, 1 bunch Swiss Chard, 1 bunch leaf lettuce, 3 bunches Asparagus, and 10 Cucumbers
Amazing and all for $15!!!! (there is a $3 charge for first time and $1.50 handling)
I also had the opportunity to volunteer and I think that I will do that EVERY time. Not only do you get your basket first but you get a little extra  (2 small items or 1 big item) if there are leftovers after the separating is done. I really enjoyed it. Great people and so much fun. I am HOOKED!!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
