Okay, ladies & gents, it’s time to dish at our weekly open post. Pour the coffee, grab some gingerbread cookies, we’ll be here for awhile.
When I was about six years old I was in the middle of a major Hello Kit ty obsession. I mean, major. There were multiple demands on my mother to please, please, pretty pretty pretty please take me to the Sanrio store so I could ogle the pencils and come home with a notebook or an eraser. Which makes me kind of glad I have a son who is only obsessed with cars and trains!
On one of my visits to the magical Sanrio store, I remember finding the most adorable mini clipboard that absolutely stole my heart. I didn’t get to bring it home, but a while later went to a store that had a $1 grab bag game. At the low, low price of $1, I was allowed to pick one out that happened to contain my beloved mini clipboard! Let’s talk magical life moments!
That’s kind of how I feel about monthly sample subscription bags. It’s not a guarantee that you’ll receive something you’ll like and use, but there is the oft chance you’ll receive something totally right up your alley and worth the cost.
From Birchbox, Glossybox, The Look Bag, and more, there are a myriad of choices when it comes to sample subscription boxes. Pay anywhere from $10 to $21 a month to receive samples and usually a couple of full-sized products.
Do you subscribe to any sample clubs? Which ones? Have you been happy with them?
P.S. I can’t believe my magical Sanrio clipboard is online!!!!
