I'm so thankful for a great friend who introduced me to Door to Door Organics. It's this awesome service that delivers fresh organic produce to your door. They have various boxes of produce to choose from. Each week they have the set produce, but if there is something in the box that week that you don't like you can make up to 5 substitutions.
Here's what's in my box this week:
1 Acorn Squash
2 Red Bell Peppers
3 Red Starkrimson Pears
4 Red Plums
1 Lb Black Autumn Royal Grapes
Delivery is free for most areas, so I just have to pay for my produce. My box just costs $32.66. There is no subscription fee and no cancellation fee if I decide I no longer want to receive door to door organics. Also, if you know you're going to be on vacation for a week or don't need produce for a week you can schedule a "vacation." How cool is that?
Wait it gets better! They even have a kitchen tab where it will pull up recipes based on what's in your box that week. My meal planning for the week is coming straight from their website. I'm super excited to try new recipes. The meal plan will even create my grocery list.
Even better, it saved me money and time on my weekly grocery shopping. Usually I spend at least an hour in the grocery store. This is even with a list that is organized by the route I shop in the store. My list is also based on my weekly meal planning, so I don't purchase excess. Now I cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner nearly every day of the week. I typically spend $100-$115 a week on groceries. With door to door organics and my weekly grocery bill yesterday, I only spent $89. WOOHOO!!! Plus shopping only took me 30 minutes because I did not spend any time in the produce section bagging fruits and veggies.
Unfortunately, this is not available in all areas. It is available in Kansas City, Colorado, Chicago, Michigan and some states out East. If you are in one of these areas and would like to receive 50% off your first box just leave a comment below. I will email you a coupon. So fun!
