Red Pawpaw


Yesterday I woke up to a Facebook photo post from a friend, who’d just received what looked like a random box of groceries from a company called Redpawpaw. Intrigued, I decided to investigate a little further and came across the Redpawpaw website.

The concept is as follows: You order a box of groceries and household items worth $30 for as little as $5 a month. The catch is that you don’t know what you are going to get, so it’s like a lucky dip! In return, you get to sample a whole heaps of products you may not have previously tried, and provide feedback on a survey that is sent to you! Sounds good? Well it gets even better. One of my closet passions is to try and support small and local industries so I was very glad when I read that Redpawpaw try and place an emphasis on Australian made products.

I signed up for Redpawpaw that morning when I got into work where I was asked to come up with a profile for my household and provide information on my preferences. I assume this is what helps determine which products will be in my box, after all giving me pet food or baby products would be useless! The only question it didn’t ask me was about dietary restrictions, but I’m sure if I get something non vegetarian, the other half will be more than happy to take it off my hands.

There are two options for the box, you can either select a $30 box of groceries and pay $10 a month, or you can pay $5 a month for the same box of groceries plus the added fun of filling in a survey with your feedback on the products. I love surveys, so naturally I went with the latter option.

I got myself an annual subscription, which allows to get two boxes for free, so I only had to pay $50 for the year. The boxes are sent out after the second week of every month, which meant I was too late to receive the May box, but photos indicate that the box was great!

Few of the items that caught my eye included some Green’s pancake mix, some Kellogs’ cereal and Saxa salt flakes. All the items come in an actual cardboard box, which could be used for so many purposes. I have my eye on it as a shoe storage box, but we’ll have to see!

For now, I just have to sit tight, and wait until the end of June when the next boxes get sent out... can’t wait!


  1. That's a nice box of stuff! I've heard about this deal, but not signed up for it because I'm in the midst of moving... would totally do it otherwise.

  2. Thanks for the great review! The good news is that you aren't too late for the May box - yours will be delivered within the next 2 weeks - enjoy discovering!
