House Box August 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 such a cute little box!  It fits easily in a mailbox and yet is still full of useful things.

As you can see from the card, this is the back to school box.  The reverse tells you the items are to help you pack lunches in style and be gentle on the environment.  It also tells you the items, prices, and companies they are available from.


My first peek gave nothing away as this bag covered everything.


Snack Pack Reusables Snack Bag-$7.00 and Sandwich Bag-$9.00

I am having the best luck lately!  I was searching for how to make these and now this is the second box this month to send me some!  These are washable and keep food fresh for the day.


Fox Run Brands Tea Kettle Descaler-$5.00

This little guy prevents the buildup of that white scale on the inside of your tea kettle.  I don’t think I’ve ever worried about it before but now I wonder if I should have?  You pop this in and it attracts all the sediment that would normally just cling to the sides.

Detour Coffee-60g $3.40

I don’t drink coffee but luckily my Hubby does so this will go to him.  This is a blend called Los Naranjos and it says it has notes of cola, grapefruit, stewed fruit, and vanilla.  That actually sounds delicious but not enough for me to drink it.  These are whole beans.


The Soap Exchange Envirowash-75g $0.89

This is a concentrated powder laundry soap.  It has a lemon scent and you only need a tablespoon per load so it’ll last a while.  I love getting laundry soap samples!  I know I’m weird but it’s just such a great thing that you always need and who doesn’t want to try new things???

I am very happy with this box.  This months has a value of $25.29, which is still a little low but better than last month. 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. The boxes have been consistently good, I wish they did a monthly box.  If you want to sign up let me know and I can send you a link!
