If you follow any of my social media channels, you’ve probably seen the posts about Gramma In A Box Subscription. We’ve been receiving Gramma In A Box for about 4 months now. My kids love it.
Each month is a new theme with cookie cut outs and a candy treat to make. The best part, Gramma Terry does all the work for you. You get to do the fun part of decorating and eating your yummy treats.
January Gramma in a Box was Dog and Cat Themed. The box come with just about everything you need: icing, sprinkles, ingredients for the candy treats, and more.
This months candy treat was chocolate paw prints. The box came with rice crispies, melting chocolate, parchment paper, and m&m candies to create the paw prints.
Then of course, we had to sample the creations. Everything tasted yummy. It’s so awesome to create these treats together and not have to have the work of baking, full clean up, waiting for cookies to cook, etc.
While it might be too late to get your hands on a January box, there’s still time to get the February box. The February Gramma in a Box, as you might guess, will be Valentine’s Day themed.
Instead of just giving your child or grandchild a treat, why not have the gift of spending the time together and creating memories with these fun and delicious boxes. It is recommended to order each month’s box before the 8th of each month as there are a limited number available each month.
Weather-based and other natural disasters are increasing in frequency – and severity. The result is more and more people impacted and even displaced by extreme weather and natural disasters. Along with 72-hour emergency kits, FEMA recommends that families be prepared with a 2-week supply of food, water and other essentials (https://www.fema.gov/pdf/library/f&web.pdf).
Every family needs to be prepared for the inevitable unforeseen circumstance, especially when it comes to stocking up on emergency essentials. Although no one can prevent or avoid unexpected events, everyone should prepare for them. While other emergency food options fall far short of nationally recommended caloric content, Emergency Essentials created its own certification: the Quality Survival Standards™ (QSS™). QSS-certified meals are guaranteed to contain a minimum of 1,800 calories and 40 grams of protein (per person, per day), and often provide far more. That’s why the 2-Week Be Prepared Survival in a Pail kit from Emergency Essentials is the country’s go-to 2-week survival kit. It delivers the basics families need for 14 days, featuring delicious and nutritious chef-crafted meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a shelf life for up to 25 years – plus all the required cooking gear to cook the meals…an 80-gallon, heavy duty survival grade water filter for food rehydration and drinking…and life-saving supplies for warmth and weather-protection. Be Prepared Emergency Essentials has established itself as a national leader in emergency preparedness for good reason. Families across the country have come to depend on Be Prepared Emergency Essentials and the company’s popular2-Week Survival in a Pail kit for the highest quality, stored-to-last emergency foods – healthy entrees that are easily prepared in only a matter of minutes and packaged in durable containers to withstand a major event.
I live in southwestern Pennsylvania where we can experience all 4 seasons in the same week. We can have 92 degrees with 90% humidity in August then -10 with 3 week old ice on the ground in February.
In the winter it can be hard to leave the house because of the cold and ice. Sometimes ice accumulation on the power lines will cause a line snap. Car accidents causing utility poles to go down is another thing that happens. So I ask myself, with a family of 6, what do we do if we have another “snowpocalypse” lose power for days? Cooking would be difficult, heating the house would be hard, leaving the house would be hard.
Each area of the country has their own real disaster threats: floods, hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, etc. How would you prepare in an emergency?
We received the 2 week survival in a pail emergency kit. It contains enough food and supplies for 2 weeks. While it does not include water it does include and water filtration system. BePrepared Emergency Essentials does offer kit that contain water as well.
The BePrepared 2 Week Survival in a Pail is an easy grab and go kit for a true emergency situation. It has a variety of dehydrated foods. My son helped me do an unboxing video of the kit so you can see everything included:
How do you think you or someone you know could use this kit? Products from BePrepared.com are great for the survivalist, adventurer, or outdoor enthusiasts.
As soon as I heard about Misfit Market box I wanted to try it. The prices seemed unbelievable, the idea behind it was worthy, and it was open to my state.
What is Misfit Market?
In my words it’s the fruit and veggies that might get over looked or might not be put out on a store shelf because it’s not pretty. Maybe it had a bump, maybe it’s not the usual color, maybe it’s a little small or a little larger than we’re used to. Rather than wasting this food Misfit Market offers it at a reasonable price. All products are certified organic and non-gmo.
Why did I choose to try Misfit Market?
The prices are extremely reasonable to have fruits and veggies delivered right to my door. The fact that all their produce they offer is certified organic and non-gmo is awesome too. They use bio bags for the produce which are compostable. The insulation in the box is compostable too.
Check out our unboxing video for the Misfit Market Madness Box that we received today:
We got the Madness box because we’re a family of 6. It’s plenty big for us. There is a smaller box too. You can choose to get weekly or bi-weekly delivery subscriptions or you can do a one-time purchase. You can also choose which day of the week you’d like to receive your box.
Toucan Box gives kids hands on activities to do each month. It’s not just crafts, there are also games that encourage the kids to get active.
We received the May Toucan Box to review. My daughter loves stuff like this so she happily helped me to do a thorough review. The box included two craft activities that included a Nature Bag and Jelly Fish races. We did the nature bag first.
One of my daughter’s dreams is to become a “YouTuber” so she’d be thrilled to here some positive comments on her first narrated Youtube video!
After the nature bag was complete she could use it to take part in the seasonal nature bingo game that came with the kit. Kids can use the seasonably appropriate card to hunt for different items like sticks, acorns, leaves, spiders, etc. They can even collect some of the items in their bag if they would like. This is a fun way to get the kids active and exploring the world around them.
What we love about Toucan Box:
Comes with the materials you need to create the projects
Fun activities that encourage imagination and creativity

I received this product at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.
Here I am at 39 years old and I feel like I have no idea what my skin wants to do. I have fine lines starting around my eyes and between my eye brows. I break out in my “T” zone, and my skin gets dry at times. So when Y’OUR Skincare asked me to try one of their boxes I figured, why not? I did an unboxing video when I first got my Y’OUR box.
When you visit the y-ourskin.com you’ll see it will ask you to take the skincare quiz. The quiz will take you a few minute to complete but they really want to learn about your skin so they can create a skincare regimen specific to your skincare needs. The products in my box and the ingredients in my products might not be the same as yours. Y’OUR hits all the check offs for a good-for-you skin care routine too:
made in the U.S.
vegan & cruelty free
paraben & toxin free
3 months supply in each box
I told you in the video that I’d try to get some better shots of the ingredients list on the bottles. Here is a close pic of the cleanser ingredients as an example:
The next question might be, Did if work for me? Well if you watched the video you could see I had an obvious pimple around my chin area. I also had a few more pop up after the video. I’ve been using my Y’OUR skin care products for 2 weeks now. My skin is completely clear of acne. This is me, bare skin, no make-up.
Y’OUR skincare also has a blog post about getting rid of acne on their site: y-ourskin.com
Check out Y’OUR skincare for truly individualized skincare products that are safe for your skin and actually work!
