The skinny on subscription boxes
Subscription boxes typically revolve around a particular theme and contain an assortment of products that are delivered to your home for the length of your subscription. Most of the time, each month’s items are a surprise, which is part of the fun and appeal. Some monthly boxes allow subscribers to set preferences to personalize their boxes.
Many subscription box services offer a trial period where you can receive boxes to see if it’s something you’re interested in for the long term. Most offer a three-, six-, or 12-month subscription, and prices can range from as low as $10 to upwards per box, though most are in the $10-$40 range.
Some of the most popular subscription boxes are geared toward your favorite workout or offer pre-packaged meals or snacks to help you maintain a healthy diet. These types of subscription boxes can be great motivators for living a healthy lifestyle. Meal kit services offer boxes that make meal planning and prep for busy families easy and convenient, which is often the key to sticking with a healthy diet.
