House Box April 2016

House Box is a Canadian bi-monthly subscription box that sends you 5 or more assorted home product samples.  Plans start at $21.95 but do go down with longer plans and shipping is $9.95.  Taxes are included in the pricing.  The site says you can review your products and shape future boxes but so far I can’t figure out how to make that happen.  The items included are Canadian companies too!  After you have tried them out you can purchase the full sized version from the website or they have links direct to the companies.  Let’s see what was inside this month.

They have a good shipping box and as I mentioned last time it’s quite small.  However they fill it up well and you can see the info card just on the top.

Here’s the whole info card.  It shows this month is all about Spring Cleaning.  The back tells you about the items included and gives the pricing.

Here’s a shot of everything to be found under the papers and wrapping.

Dizolve Eco-Strips Laundry Detergent-6 Strips $1.22

These laundry strips are made to make your laundry easier.  You tear a strip off the pad and toss it right into your machine.  They are phosphate-free, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic.  The whole strip will dissolve during the cycle, so there is nothing for you to dig out of your machine or load at the end.

Laundry Tarts Sweet Spot Stain Remover-$6.66

I guess they feel the laundry is the place to be right now.  You can use this stick to get rid of new stains and it may even help lessen old ones.  It is made with natural ingredients and safe for sensitive skin.  I like that I can rub it on stains and then just toss it in the machine.

JBK Pottery Pot MInder-$5.00

This little disk helps to prevent pots from boiling over.  You drop it in  and then as the water begins to boil it rattles on the bottom of the pot and reminds you that you’ve got something on the stove.  I had always wondered how these worked and now I know.

Tupperware

I love Tupperware but almost never have the real thing because my Hubby wrecks it.  This little container is perfect for taking salad dressing for my lunches.  They also included the latest magazine and you can place orders online through the representative listed.

Dark Horse Farms 100% Natural Soap by Beelites-$1.40

This soap is so scented.  As soon as I took it out of the baggie it came in the whole room smells like tea.  I love getting these little soaps and my current sliver in the bathroom needs to be replaced and I think this will be just the thing.  This soap is chemical, preservative, harsh detergent, colourant, and GMO free.

Yogi Tea-$0.34 x 4

These teas are made with organic ingredients.  They offer 19 different varieties and in my box I received Restful Sleep, Egyptian Licorice, Lemon Ginger, and Green Tea Kombucha.  The only one I won’t drink is the licorice one.  I can never have too much tea and thanks to boxes my stash is usually full.

I am very happy with this box.  This months has a value of $15.65, which I think is a little low. I know I didn’t include the Tupperware price but it’s not going to make a huge difference.  There was a mix of all sorts of items for the home and with them all being Canadian it’s a bunch of good finds.  I have been on a mission to find more Canadian boxes since the exchange rate is so crappy right now and I’m glad to have found this one.  I hope that the rest of the boxes from them are as good as this one.  If you want to sign up let me know and I can send you a link!
