Have you noticed that there’s a subscription box service for pretty much everything these days? From bathroom supplies to dog treats to condoms — you can have all your monthly supplies at your doorstep. But I’ve always wondered if they’re worth it, or if you just end up spending more money in the long haul (and end up with more clutter). Here’s one I’m curious to try, and two I just signed up for…
I have a friend who takes a multivitamin everyday and swears it keeps her from getting sick. I’ve never gotten into the habit, but I wonder if I should. Ritual packs the 9 essential vitamins women lack the most into one capsule. Plus, the pill is coated, making it easier to swallow than those impossibly large horse pills (HATE those).
There are a ton of meal delivery services out there, but Blue Apron remains on the top for its super fresh ingredients and original recipes. I’ve heard mixed reviews among friends (and a lot of complaints about the amount of waste produced from their packaging), but I wanted to see for myself. I just signed up for a trial week, and I’ll be reporting back with my thoughts soon (and recycling as much as much of it as possible). Stay tuned!
Okay, this might not be the most exciting service, but it’s one I’m really thrilled about. As someone who orders daily contacts every 3 months, I was STOKED to learn about Hubble, a new brand of contact lenses that cost half the price of current contacts on the market. I’m giving it a shot since the first box is free (you just cover $3 handling and shipping fee).
Have you tried any of these? Do you subscribe to any monthly services? Would love to hear!
