I am fascinated by subscription boxes because they are a fun way to shop and become acquainted with products. When Cratejoy asked me to become one of their subscription box reviewers, how could a subscription box addict like me refuse such a tempting offer?
With a company like Cratejoy Subscription Box Marketplace that has some 200 boxes, I knew the selection had to be good. Inside my first shipment, I got five different types of subscriptions appealing to various interests.
Urban Organic Gardener was something I really loved. This collection of goodies will help you eat healthier will the organic food that you’ll be able to grow. Each month a subscriber gets five packets of pure 100% non-GMO garden seeds plus there is always a bonus gift included.

I got a packet of Kale (Red Russian) with 50 seeds, Dill (Bouquet) with 100 seeds, Tomatillo (Large Fruited) with 10 seeds, Kohlrabi (Purple Vienna) with 50 seeds, and a packet of Oregano (Greek) with 1,000 seeds. The bonus was something I had always wanted to experiment with 10 soil packs that you soak in warm water to start the seeds in for quicker growing. This box starts at $10.
If gardening is not your thing, then maybe art is. Let me tell you about another monthly box that you may like called Sketch Box. This one will bring you five to 10 different premium art supplies to help inspire your artistic creativity.

For example, I found a 12 pack of Koh-I-Noor Woodless Color Pencils that are nice for illustrating, a Kum magnesium sharpener for extra smooth sharpening, and a Prismacolor Premier trio kit of erasers along with a sample post card of art work using those products. The cost of this subscription starts at $25.
Perhaps, you are more the outdoor type. If so, you might like the BackpackerBox. Each month you can get five to seven eco-friendly products to help heighten your hiking and camping fun with an estimated monthly value of at least $30. Sign up for either a Classic or a Vegan Box subscription.

My BackpackerBox included a Vapur Runway Collapsible Bottle, Epic Bison, Bacon and Cranberry Bar, Granite Gear 5L Air Bag, and an Ultralight Backpackin’ Tips Falcon Guide. The cost starts at $19.99 a month.
Ladies, if the thought of dressing up is more appealing than trekking through the woods, then Cratejoy has you covered with a box like Cate & Chloe VIP. This subscription brings you two pieces of jewelry and a bonus gift each month. Each box has an estimated retail value of $200 according to Cate & Chloe.

May 2015 brought me their Addison “Innovator” Bar Necklace. This necklace is silver featuring a bar, hanging from its chain that you can wear alone or layer with other jewelry to style it up. The second piece was an Emery “Brave” Bracelet. This piece is a gold chain centered with an amber-like crystal. As a bonus, I found a silver-toned patterned design Drew “Wise One” Ring, an adjustable fits all cuff ring. This subscription starts at $32 a month.
Calling all beer drinkers, I have something just for you. Last of all, I got Cooler Can Monthly. This is a subscription where you’ll be sent a unique new beer koozie every month from places you never heard of before. I got a green Welcome to Weiner, Ar. The cost starts at $4.50 a month and includes free shipping.
