Mama’s Got Mail Subscription Box Review – May 2014
Mama’s Got Mail is a unique subscription box for moms that reminds you to take some time for yourself each month. In addition to the items included in the box, each mailing also includes a monthly Personal Self Check In sheet to use to do some reflecting!
Mama’s Got Mail kindly sent me this box to review.
The Subscription Box: Mama’s Got Mail
The Cost: One time box ($49), 6-month subscription ($44 a month), 12-month subscription ($39 a month)
The Products: Items in the box are a surprise each month, and also include a personal check-in worksheet, as well as a newsletter explaining the story behind the box’s contents.
Each box comes with a letter from Shannon explaining the items and the theme for the month. May’s theme is about originality.
There’s also a self check-in quiz with every box.
The Art of Non-Conformity – Retail Value $15
Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do Notepad – Value $10?
I’m pretty excited to read this book – I like the theme, plus I’ve loved all the books Shannon has selected for Mama’s Got Mail so far!
The Buddy Holly Story DVD – Retail Value $15
I haven’t seen this movie, but Shannon describes Buddy Holly as one of the original most original thinkers, and it gets good reviews so it will go in our movies-to-watch-queue.
Verdict: This box also included a link for a free month of SkillShare – from what I can tell everyone can get a free month, you do have to enter your credit card info though, so I’m not counting it toward the retail value of the box. The May box has a retail value of about $40. (Some of these items are on sale for less though). From my experience I would say that this box isn’t about a high value – it’s more about the curation and the self-check in. (If you’re going to subscribe I think that the 6 or 12 month options make the value a lot better).
This is definitely one of the most unique subscriptions I get, and I love that it’s about self-reflection and learning. What do you think of the May Mama’s Got Mail Box?
