Do you know what a subscription box is? I didn’t until a few months ago. Subscription boxes are just that – a box of items you subscribe to on a monthly, bimonthly or quarterly basis. The most popular are beauty boxes – makeup, skincare and/or haircare items delivered to your mailbox. Perhaps you have seen the commercials for Birchbox @birchbox on TV. But there are many more both inexpensive (Birchbox and Ipsy @Ipsy are both $10/month) to ones that are $40 or more a month.
But there are box subscriptions for most every interest: for children, foodies, tea drinkers, globetrotters, snackers, etc i and what do people do that get these? Are you ready? They video themselves unboxing their boxes! Yep, “it’s a thing”. You can find hundreds, if not thousands of folks on YouTube doing just that, including yours truly! Yes, shameless plug for my YouTube channel (if you don’t know what that is ask your grandchildren) by the same name as this blog. I have a short primer (below) on subscription boxes there as well as unboxings and reviews of my subscriptions. Check it out. And yes, I film in my bathroom late at night. Good lighting is important!
In case the thought of me on YouTube is too scary, I will be doing full reviews here on the website as well.
