After the continual coercing of a friend, I finally joined Citrus Lane. Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription service that sends out a monthly box of products for your child. Each box costs $25 a month (less if you buy a package deal) and they choose the products based on your child's gender and age. They were running a special earlier this month for half off your first box. So I signed up. For $12.50, I got all this:
|Citrus Lane, December, 16 month old boy|
1. Green Toys Airplane retail $14.99
2. Pearhead brag book retail $8.95
3. Renee & Jeremy It's a Big World CD retail $12.00
4. Madaecasse 75% Cocoa Mini Chocolate Bar retail $1.50
5. Ecomom Voucher $15.00
So for $12.50, I got $52.44 in products! Each month, they include something for mom. That's what the chocolate bar was for. Yesterday, Ecomom had free shipping on all orders, so I ordered a Melissa and Doug Tool Set for Noah. Then, Ecomom sent me a $5 coupon for signing up for their emails. So I ordered again and got a Plan Toys car for Noah!
What a great deal! Honestly, I don't know how long we'll keep the service. I'd love to keep it coming monthly, but Chas is pretty frugal and a monthly box of toys and baby products is not something he sees as a necessity.
You can sign up for Citrus Lane and test it out yourself! Use coupon code TAKEHALF for 50% off your first month's box! Hurry! The code expires January 16th, 2013! As a bonus, when you sign up through my link, you'll get a $10 credit to your account!
