$70+ in Organic Groceries for $5.99!

If you follow my blog or any other frugal living blog, you know by now that deals go fast. I don't normally post deals that I have taken advantage of that sell out before I can share them with you, because it feels like I'm bragging or saying "neener, neener, neener, look what I got."

However, this deal is so amazing that it is a good example of why you need to be a fan of BMIM (& your other favorite blogs!) on Facebook, a follower on Twitter (yes, I'm finally joining the world of Twitter!), subscribe to get BMIM delivered to your email inbox, or subscribe via a RSS feeder. If you're simply checking the blog every day (which is great; I'm not complaining), you may miss out on deals that sell out lightening quick.

On Tuesday, my friend Jen over at Thrifty NW Mom posted a deal about how Amazon Fresh was giving $75 off any order of $30 or more to the first 1000 new customers. Since I'm a fan of Thrifty NW Mom on Facebook, I saw her posting right away; much faster than if I just randomly checked Jen's blog a few times a day. I was able to take advantage of the offer & got $72-ish worth of groceries for just $5.99 in delivery fees (my order was originally around $78, but they were out of an item, so they simply deducted it from my total).

Sadly, by the time I placed my order & went to post it on here, the deal had sold out. This is why it's vital to follow your favorite blogs by subscription, Facebook, Twitter, etc. to get the best deals!

I took a better photo of my order, but my daughter wanted to get in on the action, so of course I'm using the photo with her in it. In the photo above you will see I got:
  • 2 bottles of organic white grape juice

  • 1 jar of organic pasta sauce
  • 1box (6 ct) of organic fruit roll ups
  • 4 cans of organic chicken noodle soup

  • 1 box (5 ct) microwavable mac & cheese made with organic cheese

  • 1 box of an organic skillet meal kit

  • 1 box of taco shells

  • 2 packages of taco seasoning mix

  • 1 small container of organic raspberries (the most expensive thing I purchased...but it was a treat for my daughter!)

  • 3 organic apples

  • 2 lbs. of organic baby carrots

  • 1 head of organic lettuce

  • 1 lb. of organic ground beef

  • 1 lb. of organic ground pork

While I'm sad I wasn't able to share this deal with you, it's a good example of why staying connected to your favorite blogs (hopefully BMIM is one of them!) is vital if you want to get the best deals. Head over to BMIM's Facebook page & become a fan if you haven't, follow BMIM on Twitter, or subscribe via RSS or daily emails. Whatever your preference, staying connected to blogs will help you get the best deals.


  1. Wow- you got a ton of great stuff! Woo-hoo! Thanks for the shout-out! Glad you were able to take advantage! :)

  2. I did get a ton of stuff, & still can't believe it! THANK YOU for posting the deal in the first place! (Now I just have to figure out how to get the Amazon Fresh bins back to them...without placing another order!)
