Did you preorder a copy (or two) of my new book, Good Cheap Eats? I’ve got another bonus feature waiting for you. 

grocery bags 2

I have had so much fun dreaming up the bonus features to go along with my new cookbook, Good Cheap Eats: Everyday Dinners and Fantastic Feasts for $10 or Less.

First there was the weeklong meal plan; then there was the cooking with kids e-booklet. Last week I told you about the great book my friend Amy from Wine4.Me wrote to help you pair just the right wines with the menus in the book. Those resources will be emailed sometime during the week of the book shipping out. Please be patient while we get those emails delivered.

This week’s bonus feature is probably one of my favorites!

I love my Good Cheap Eats.

I asked my good friend Joy to design a grocery bag with the GCE logo. This is what she came up with. I love it! I can’t wait to go shopping!

The nice folks at my publisher, the Harvard Common Press are offering a free bag to folks who’ve preordered the Good Cheap Eats cookbook. Now, quantities are limited. There are only 50 bags to be given away and shipped to the US only, so you’ll have to hurry.

If you’ve preordered the book, fill out the form below (or go here for the live form). Your bag will ship sometime next week when the book ships.

Leaving a comment on this post will NOT get you your preorder bonus — though I do love to chat with you. You have to fill out the form. Them’s the rules. Thanks again for your support! I can’t wait for you to have a copy of Good Cheap Eats in your hot little hands.

  1. I am really looking forward to this book arriving! I am fighting increasing our grocery budget as prices increase and could really use some encouragement.

    Hi Jessica, though I would very much like one of these bags I won’t expect you to post to me 🙂 I have registered for all your electronic free gifts though. I’m sure I won’t get my book from the US till after everyone else but will be watching the mail. I’ll send you a pic with the book from tropical Cairns!

    I can’t wait to receive your book! I preordered it ages ago on Amazon.

  4. So excited to have the book and I’m loving the suspense with all the goodies!! Thanks

  5. The good stuff just keeps coming! How fun — thank you!

  6. Drats! I missed out on the tote bag….says full. My dad passed on Sept 9 and it is always a dismal day for me–it’s been 16 years this year. I am always glad when I work on that day as it keeps me busy. Now, I have something to look forward to when I come home this year—your new book on my doorstep from Amazon that day–yeah!

  7. Great giveaway idea! Are you thinking about selling the bags??? I wouldn’t mind buying a few and promoting your book/site. 😉

  8. Hi Jessica,
    I have your book via Emily Geaman at Harvard Common Press. I just made and photographed your skillet Poached Eggs with Spinach–for blog tour next week. (and ate some for lunch) I LOVE the generous proportion of leeks in the recipe. So delicious.
    I am enjoying reading the cookbook…Love your #101 tips.

  9. Hi. I just received an email from Amazon stating preordered book release has been postponed until 9/16. I am really disappointed and am wondering if this is true? Thanks

    • Huh. I have not heard that. I preordered mine as well and I haven’t received that email. Did you order it a long time ago or was that recently? I’m wondering if Amazon ran out? I’ll find out.

  10. Hi. I ordered it on 8/21 and it’s the kindle edition. Now I wish I had ordered the hard copy… 9/9 is my birthday & ordered it as a birthday present to myself 🙂
