You’re totally having one of those weeks; your socks have been mismatched since Tuesday, Ramen is on the lunch menu (again), and there’s no time to stock your fridge, so you’re eating and drinking on the fly -- that means gas station coffee and overpriced glasses of wine at a restaurant.
We don’t have an easy solution to the mismatched socks problem, but there are some amazing subscription services to make your life a bit easier. You’ll smell better, feel better and have the best gift ideas when you need them.
Boost your morning with a brewed cup of Seattle’s top coffee, roasted fresh and delivered to your door. Experts at Bean Box select top-rated beans and ship them to you each month.
You can try a sampler pack or choose a new variety to try monthly. Bean subscriptions also make a great gift for your coffee-loving employees or clients. There are several other doorstep coffee companies such as MistoBox and Citizen Bean that will taste way better than your usual on-the-go cup.
You haven’t had time to do laundry OR purchase new underwear, but instead of getting “creative”, try subscribing to Manpacks. You can have fresh shirts, underwear, socks and grooming products delivered straight to your door. Customize your Manpack or choose a pre-curated gift set with quality, affordable products that won’t leave you in a jam.
Skip the takeout and log into Plated from your desktop or phone, where you can choose a healthy recipe to create at home with all the ingredients you’ll need and helpful, step-by-step instructions to concoct an Instagram-worthy dinner.
While you may not have the time to shop for the fixings for a healthy meal, there are several subscription-based cooking companies (Blue Apron and Sun Basket) that will get you cooking like a pro in no time (a skill that will come in handy).
Relax after a long day by opening a nice bottle of wine, customized to your palate and profile. Scanning the selection in the wine aisle and trying to find the perfect fit can be time consuming, but wine subscriptions such as Club W and Blue Apron Wines make it easy.
You can choose what you like, and they’ll send the perfect bottle. Impress your friends by introducing them to new labels and varietals, and be the star of the dinner party.
Take care of yourself and your home by choosing 5 natural products per month from the Honest Co. subscription. You’re able to schedule when shipments are delivered and how often, so you never run out of essentials.
There are great options to choose from for busy parents as well. From cleaning, to personal care and vitamins, you can make sure you’re keeping your supplies in check from your desk. Extra bonus: the products you choose are healthy and environmentally safe.
Instead of wasting your calories on empty vending machine foods like pastries and chips, opt for a more healthy option. You don’t even have the excuse that you’re “too busy” to eat healthy anymore.
Graze offers convenient and customer-tested foods at $11.99/box, so you can fight off mid-afternoon cravings with something that’s good for you. There are tons of options to choose from, and you can have them delivered right to your office. Also try Amazon Fresh for fast grocery delivery, when you’re in a pinch.
By taking these small tasks out of your weekly routine, you’ll save time AND be on the road to a healthier, more organized lifestyle just from eating better and feeling like a million bucks. Subscription services are the newest trend, and more savvy-minded companies are popping up to make buying choices even more convenient. The great thing is, you know where it’s coming from and what it’s made out of, because companies are choosing to be transparent about these details. It’s a win-win for any busy lifestyle.
