October Graze Box - 8 Snack Pack

Graze sends out a box of four snack size containers of dried fruit, nuts, crackers, dip and dippers, etc.  The boxes are semi-customizable meaning you don't actually get to pick which items you want but you can rate the items you receive from love to never send me this again.  The cost of the box is $11.99 per shipment. You can also choose how often you want the boxes. I have mine set up for every four weeks.  

Price: $11.99 per 8 pack shipment or $6.99 per 4 pack. This subscription ships to the US only, except Hawaii and Alaska.

Use Code: ANISHA6PB and get your 1st and 5th Box Free!

The good:

Like Snacks: Are you a snacker like me?  These are perfectly proportioned snack size containers.

Nutritional info: The include nutritional info in each box. It's on the card in the package though, not the actual product.

Skip: You can do this online through your account and it's super easy.

Semi-customizable: You rate items and that's how they choose which items to send you.

The not so good:

Price: The costs ends up being $1.50 per package.  You're paying for convenience but I gotta be honest it was super convenient to pick up a pack and throw it in my lunch bag this morning.

All 8 snacks in this months box. 

Contents of box:

Vitamin E Defense.  

Vitamin C Crush. 

Strawberries & Cream Granola Topper. 

Lightly Salted Popping Corn. 

Butterscotch Popcorn Flapjack. 

Brooklyn Bites. 

Smart Blondie.

Thai Sweet Chili Bites.

Verdict: I'm really like my Graze boxes for convenient portable snacks.

September Cricut Premium Mystery Box

Cricut is a personal electronic cutting machine used in card making, scrapbooking, and crafting of all types. Cricut started selling mystery boxes which when they contain the cartridges are a terrific value! The cartridges that are needed to use the machine run anywhere from $20-$50 a piece. As you can see, adding to your collection of cartridges can add up quick.

The price of this months Cricut mystery box was $39.99 with free shipping. The box description is as follows: 

The PREMIUM Mystery Box contains more cartridges than we have ever included in a single mystery box. The contents are mysterious (but worth the surprise).

The also had a regular mystery box available earlier this month but it included mostly products so I didn't order it. 

This is still available so if you want one head on over to Cricut before they are gone. 

Contents of box with prices from the Cricut website listed.
The first price is the regular price and the second price is the sale price listed. 

Cricut Holidays Through the Year Iron-On. Value = $20.99

Cricut Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch. Value = $20.99

Cricut  Creative Everyday Cards. Value = $20.99

Cricut Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments. Value = $20.99

Cricut Spring Fling. Value = $29.99

The total value of this box is $113.95. The holidays through the year is a dup for me but I've been selling my dupes on eBay so it works out okay. I've been stalking pinterest for ideas using all my cartridges. I'm determined to use them more this year. 

Verdict: If you are into Cricut and don't have a lot of cartridges the mystery boxes with cartridges in them is a great deal.

Sponsored Item

Crest 3D White Brilliance 2-Step System. Value = $??

The total value of the first FabFitFun box is $276.99. I didn't count the value of the gift cards because both of them will have an out of pocket expense, although not much. I was able to pick the colors of 3 of the items I received because I'm a yearly subscriber. I picked the color of the umbrella, the charger and the bracelet. The face mask looks absolutely decadent and priced at $30 each it better be a miracle worker. I have a couple of the portable chargers already but I guess another one wouldn't hurt, I could keep it in my car. I don't usually use workout DVD's because I belong to a gym but I've debating on canceling my gym membership. It's so expensive and my schedule gets so crazy I just don't feel like I use it enough for the price I pay. I'm going to give this DVD a try and see what happens. I thought the purple tassle purse charm was really cute and a great idea. I went onto their website and saw they also sell a purple purse but it was quite expensive. 

Verdict: This box was fun and I will use most everything except the umbrella. I'm in drought ridden California so who knows if I'll ever see rain again.
