10 of the Coolest Subscription Boxes You’ll Wish You Knew About Sooner
Over the last few years, subscription boxes have become increasingly popular because, let’s face it, who wouldn’t love to have the things they need (or just really, REALLY want) delivered straight to them every month without even having to leave the house? Think of subscription boxes as express online shopping. For every box, you usually create a profile with your preferences and favorites, create a pay plan, and patiently await the delivery of your products. The companies do most of the work for you, and best of all, you can end your subscriptions at any time.
There are plenty of subscription boxes out there under any category you could think of. Food, fashion, beauty, books, and art/music are just few of many others. Among the variety of categories, subscriptions come in a variety of prices, so you can always find the best deal of the bunch.
