Goodies.Co April 2013

Recommended Posts

Although some people didn't even get their March boxes yet, we already got charged for April yesterday.

 

I don't know if anybody else feels this way, but I personally don't get excited anymore while waiting for my Goodies box to come, and no longer hope that "the next one will be better". This subscription turned into "here's my 7 bucks, send me some snacks", so I can just ignore the snack isle at the grocery store.

I agree. April will be my last month. I have liked getting the snacks becuase I am lazy, but in an effort to get my finances in order, I have to stop being lazy and stupid. I will stick with NatureBox (which I have for free for 4 months) and Graze. That is enough snack food for anyone.

I started my food sub addiction with LWF, when I got the free box a year ago. I haven't really loved LWF for some time--I hate the random tiny pieces of chocolate or gum, etc. and it's $5 more than Goodies!! BUT I managed to get a deal and pay $20 for a six month sub...so worth it! I have loved some of my goodies boxes...for $7 I feel like I will hold onto it. I feel like its worth more than that, especially if I find new things! If they ever start really sucking, I'll reevaluate. Im not even sure I'll ever give up Graze....my evil plot is to go through the snacks (I already trashed over half of them) and narrow it down to 4-6 that I love, and literally trash everything else. If they are forced to send me Summer berry compote, and cheesy bread type of snacks, and I can get that repeatedly, I'd be so happy!!

Charged for my first box and from what I've been reading maybe my last. I can't believe they are charging for April and March is outstanding for some people. I was hoping for something to supplement my Graze snacks.

So I redeemed my points for a free box in late March and yet I was charged on April first for my box. Sent an email, but would encourage everyone else who did this to check as well.

I know one of you are in the same boat - I skipped April and then redeemed my points for my free box. I emailed and asked if I could get the April box for free. Finally, a week later - a response. Since I already skipped April, I get my free box in May.

March was my first month and, upon receiving the box I was disappointed, but I actually found out I liked it after I ate everything :) I also did the math and last month's box was worth a little over $7, so I guess it is worth it considering shipping is free, so I've decided to stay. If this month's box is bad and is worth less than $7, however, I will most likely cancel. I remember seeing the February box and being thankful I didn't get it. Chips Ahoy? Seriously? Ah well.

So what do you guys think the theme for this month might be? I'm not sure if Goodies always drop hints with their Facebook posts, but I saw them post something about Superfoods, so I was just guessing that might be the theme. They could include something like dried fruit and maybe another bottled drink.

yeah february was my first and that was not a liked one lol, then with the march stuff that i got in april i only stayed on for april because i earned the points for the free box. this will definitely be my deciding month

 

i haven't noticed any real hints, but ive only been somewhat following since december so don't know if anything they post is spoiler related. i wish they did tease out some excitement though

Checked my account today and apparently I'm getting Box 7, but I can't find any hints about what might be in it. Am impatient!

I just checked, too, and I'm getting box 1! Hopefully they'll ship them out earlier this month!

I did a double-take too, but it did say Tasters Box 7. Don't think they had that many last month but this will be only my second box, so not sure if they've ever had that many variations before.

I believe there were 12 variations or so for February.

Box 7 for me too. Do you think Goodies realizes that according to them, they will begin shipping tomorrow, the second Friday of the month? Any bets on whether or not that happens...?

Box 6 for me!  I'll be sticking around at least a couple more months until I rack up enough points for my free box.  I thought last month's was great, but I could eat breakfast foods for every meal of the day.

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
