Citrus Lane March 2014 Box for 2-Year Old Gender Neutral

Our Citrus Lane box arrived today, and it is a bit hit!

This month's box:

1. Green Toys Tool Set ($27.99 for full set, $8.99 for this one?) - as usual, we love the Green Tools toys.  I've been considering picking up this set.  She is already loving playing with the tools!

2. Green Eats Tumblers ($5.99/2) - made by the sample company as the tools.  These are a good size for her to hold and seem very sturdy.  I think these will be a hit.

3. Barefoot Books The Prince's Bedtime Book and CD ($9.99) - very cute book.  The pictures in the Barefoot Books are fantastic, and I always like stories about bedtime routines.

4. Free Greeting Card from Treat ($3.49) - Treat is a subsidiary of Shutterfly. I shop from Shutterfly pretty regularly, so I'm looking forward to trying out the personalized greeting cards.

5. Sample of Mrs. Meyer's Lemon Verbena Dish Soap ($1.00?) - Mrs. Meyer's is a brand I've wanted to try, but for some reason never have.  Nice sample this month.

I'm estimating that this month's box would retail for around $29.46, but that's just an estimate for the soap and the Green Toys.

This is the last month of our Citrus Lane subscription.  I think we will be renewing.  E has really loved the boxes, and I like the green products and toys.  Citrus Lane is having a sale!  If you sign up before April 22nd, the boxes are really discounted (36% - 44% off normal subscription prices).  Sign up here!!

Tasterie Nut-Free Snack Box

I've heard great things about services like Graze and Crave, but have been very jealous that I can't sign up due to my nut allergy.  I did some searching and came across Tasterie, which caters to customers with food allergies.  I've received two boxes, and I'm still rather indifferent on the service as a whole.  Here's my April box:

  • Namaste Foods gluten free cookie mix ($7.49)
  • Don't Go Nuts gorilla power bar ($1.79)
  • Super Seedz tomato italiano pumpkin seeds ($4.99)
  • Mother's Pure Preserves seedless raspberry jam ($6.50)
  • Enjoy Life plentils dill and sour cream lentil chips ($1.50)
  • ThinkFruit pineapple tidbits ($1.69)
  • Indie Candy bunni gummi watermelon candy ($1.99)
The total retail price is $25.95.  The box costs $25.00 plus $4.00 for shipping.  I've enjoyed the snacks, but I'm not sure it's worth the cost to continue this.

This month, I also had a problem with the shipment. The jam arrived and had opened in the shipment.  It was wrapped up in bubble wrap, but the jar lid was loose and unsealed by the time it reached me.  I'm interested to see how they handle customer service who I just contacted today.
