Great deal on local produce - delivered to your door!

It seems these days that the new "black" in the money saving world are websites that sell discounted deals/gift certificates. has been around for a while, but there are several new websites....

I have mentioned Groupon to you before in this post: Groupon.
I purchased gift certificates to Ben and Jerry's, Nobles, Ryan's and Cafe Press (for a photo on canvas) and have been very happy.

Also, there is a housewares site that has various deals: Housewares

There is a new one that my friend Sue forwarded me via email today.  It is called "Living Social", Link: LS
It appears to be very similiar to Groupon. I copied the blurb below directly from their website:

How It Works

When you see a deal that tickles your fancy, here's what to do:
  • BUY. Get in on the deal of the day
  • SHARE. If 3 of your friends buy the same deal using your link, you get your deal for FREE
  • WAIT. Your deal will be ready to print within 1 business day
  • PRINT. Follow the instructions on your deal to redeem it
  • SAVE. Enjoy your favorite spots around town at huge discounts
Today's deal for Living Social is fresh local produce. You pay $10 and get $24 worth of produce.  There is a one-time fee of $5, but if you "Like" them on Facebook, you will get an additional $1 off this deal. They deliver directly to your door.  Check them out by following this link: LS
