Life gets pretty hectic sometimes. Trying to juggle your job, exercise, housework, your social life and still get at least a few hours sleep in can be an ongoing battle. So unless you're extremely organised or have figured out how to squeeze a few extra hours in the day, something usually falls by the wayside. Sometimes, even if you love cooking, the weekly grocery shop is what gets dropped. Rather than dropping all of your hard earned cash on takeaway dinners, Ooooby may be the answer. Launched in 2013 in Newtown, Ooooby delivers boxes packed with fresh, certified organic produce to Sydney doorsteps every week.
You start by selecting one of three fruit and veg boxes, then add in any extras you may want, like eggs or bread. Then, on the same day every week (or fortnight, if you'd prefer), the box will get delivered right to your door. Delivery is free for orders over $44, too. The company works with local farmers and artisanal producers to source goods from across the country, including produce from Pocket City Farms and Kurrawong Organics, bread from The Bread & Butter Project and dairy from Country Valley. You can head here to see what is available in each box this week.
