Crates ship between the 15th and 17th of each month. If you order before the 14th of the current month, you will receive your first crate between the 17th and 22nd of the current month. If you order AFTER the 14th of the current month, you will receive your first crate between the 17th and 22nd of the following month.
Each month will be different, but will contain 5+ high quality items to promote teacher self care. For example, September's crate included an inspirational art print, a face mask, a wooden classroom sign, a mug, oatmeal soap, and matcha chai. Each box will contain at least one handmade item, and often more! I always make an effort to keep the contents natural and/or organic when possible.
Subscriptions start at 27.99/month with free shipping if you choose the three month prepay option. If you prefer to be charged each month, the cost is 29.99/month with free shipping.
Absolutely! Just go ahead and subscribe, and then cancel your subscription before the 25th of the month so that your subscription does not auto-renew.
I do ask for allergies at checkout so I have that information at hand when selecting or making items for the crate. However, I cannot guarantee that all items in a given crate will be allergen free. At this time, I am also unable to modify individual crates based on allergies. If you have food or scent allergies, please carefully read all packaging before using.
Short answer: yes. Long answer: You are never going to receive a box that is worth less than what you paid for it. Often, by working with sources and making products myself, the items in the box are worth significantly more than the subscription cost. For example, the retail value of the February crate was $37, and the retail value of the March Crate is $39. That being said, this box is meant to promote teacher self care, so my focus is providing high quality, relaxing items rather than bargain basement prices.
