Thrifty Thursday - Boxed Wine

I am a mom of 3 kids. I stay at home with them and I've been happily married for 8 years. Yes..... I like to drink red wine at night. I say it is for my heart but honestly it is my reward for a hard days work.

Let me see... I am a vintage reserve type of girl on a Boone's Farm budget! Well, we have found a wonderful happy medium. We discovered Boxed wine, yes really we did! You get 3 bottles worth in one sealed box no waste. Some nights you need more than others :)

Here are my favorite boxed wines:

Black Box Wine - My favorite is the Cabernet, but we've also tried and enjoyed the Shiraz and Merlot. I purchase mine at Wal-mart it is about $20.

Turning Leaf Merlot- this isn't quite as good as Black Box but it is cheaper. I can get this for $16 for a box. I've only tried the Merlot.

Least Favorite:

I want to give a thumbs down to: Wine Cube Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the box you can buy at Super Target. They even have some cute box covers honestly is bad! I threw the box out not even finishing it. But then again that is just my taste. Cost $14

I wish we could buy alcohol at Walmart!!! You can only buy it at package stores here. Nice tip Jen!

Good to know! We've never tried boxed wine. Think we will now! :)

I had some white zinfindel. It was the cheap stuff but it was good and lasted quite a while. It was funny too b/c my son refered to it as 'mommy's juice box'. And the best part is it lasts longer than beer.

Jen, have you tried many of the white boxed wines? I'm not a red wine girl (though that would make it easier to say I was drinking for my "heart")...
