For those of you that don't know, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription service where you get a box of goodies for your child that are geared towards their current age (and sometimes Mommy) each month delivered to your door. You never know what you are going to get, but overall I have not been disappointed. Plans start at $29/month but if you buy longer subscriptions you can get them as low as $19/month or even cheaper when they run specials).
Citrus Lane always includes a very nice information card with their boxes that lists the items and descriptions and some coupon codes!
This is what I got in my 22 Month Old, Toddler Girl, September 2014 Box and the approximate retail value I found for each item from their specific website (or Amazon, since if you know me, I'm an Amazon Junkie and would most likely buy from there). Sometimes I have to do some math because the sizes aren’t quite the same, hence why they are approximate values.
Long-sleeved Graphic Tea from Tea Collection - I've never received an article of clothing in any of my baby boxes before so I was pleasantly surprised to see one included. It's a cute and colorful top which hopefully EM will get a chance to wear once it cools down. It's a size 2, but EM is on the smaller side, so it may be too big before it warms up in spring, we shall see. I would never actually buy EM a shirt at this price (I barely spend this much on my own tops lol) but we'll certainly take it as part of our box. Also included was a $25 off $50 purchase coupon. ($26.50 at www.teacollection.com)
Links 3D Foam Bath Pieces from Boon - We seriously have more bath toys than we know what to do with. These will be saved for a baby shower gift or whenever some of our bath toys get yucky, whichever comes first. We've receive other Boon bath toys before and they are definitely good quality and I like how the foam pieces actually sticks to the tub walls. ($9.99 on Amazon)
Write Your Own Labels from Emily Press - I've actually been seeing labels like this talked about on some other blogs I read and I think they are wonderful! We have a label maker which does withstand the dishwasher as well but these are way cuter than the generic looking labels from our maker. We'll be needing to label AB's bottles soon when she heads to day care so these will definitely come in handy. ($9.99 at www.emilypress.com)
Reusable Snack Bags 2 Pack from Bumkins (in Pink Love Birds and Bloom) - We currently use reusable containers for snacks, but something about reusable snack bags seems weird since I'm so used to just using ziplock bags. (At least when I was a kid that's all there was). These are machine washable though so maybe they'll come in handy after all and will definitely save money on ziplock bags when I have to start packing a lunch every day for EM (although that is quite a few years away right now) ($6.95 on Amazon)
Total Estimated Value of Box: ~$53.43 not including shipping)
Total Cost of Box: $29.00 (free shipping) -- I only paid $10 though because of an awesome deal I found on Plum District --> definitely keep an eye out for those on Plum District, Groupon and Living Social - Citrus Lane is currently running specials on both Living Social and Groupon.
Overall Impression: Great box and a great value! My dislike for "smaller" boxes has ended here :)
