For my birthday this year, I indulged a bit on subscription boxes from fashion, lifestyle, beauty and stationery. Subscription boxes are these monthly goodies that come delightfully packaged and arrive once a month when you subscribe to it, which for some you can cancel anytime. I've been obviously unaware of the many subscription boxes out in the market. I only knew of Birchbox and that was it. So I did some researching and conducted some serious shopping.
Here are some article links you can peruse so that you can choose according to your monthly budget.
1) For a directory of subscription boxes and box reviews, visit the Mommy Splurge Blog. She has done all the research for you from monthly pricing, coupon codes and even organized the directory into categories from women, men, kids, lifestyle, crafts, etc.
3) Instagram has so many subscription box subscribers that post their monthly surprises. One account to follow is @mysubscriptionaddiction. She subscribes to about 50 boxes and also provides reviews, a directory, coupons, deals, and a swap section for your unwanted products.
4) Funny but if you need to justify your splurge, here is another article from Real Simple on How To Splurge Wisely.
So are you ready to subscribe? I did! So which ones did I pick? Here they are below.
A) POPSUGAR Must Have Box - For $35 a month, I receive an item from each one of these categories: fashion, beauty, home, fitness, and many more. This lifestyle box contains items that women love which are hand selected by POPSUGAR's editor and team. So instead of subscribing to one product category, this box covers it all.
The next two covers the beauty department.
B) Ipsy Glam Bag - For $10 a month, I receive 4 to 5 beauty samples in a glam bag each month. When you join, you must follow their instructions on how to get off the waitlist. If you are still on the waitlist after you've followed all the steps, contact Ipsy Care. That's what I did and I was immediately off the waitlist.
C) Walmart Beauty Box - It's free! But just pay $5 for shipping. This happens quarterly. Each new season (summer, winter, fall and spring), you get to sample beauty essentials sold at Walmart or Walmart.com.
And lastly, this is my ultimate favorite. I have a fascination for pretty paper goods or stationery.
D) A Beautiful Mess Happy Mail - For $15 a month (you have to commit to a year), you receive $5o in retail value of colorfully printed cards, gift tags, stickers and more. Pictured below are some of what I received for the month of January. AND of course, I LOVE the dachshund card!!!
