June Citrus Lane Box!

Well, it’s that magical time of the month again!  No, not that magical time….  It’s time for another Citrus Lane Box!  Yay!

Sara hears noise coming from her box this month, so she is trying to rip that package open asap!

The June theme is “Little Artist”.

Look at all those goodies!  Well, let’s dive right in and see what we got!

Every box starts with a little piece of paper, giving you a little overview of what to expect for this month and then going over each product individually, telling you where to find more and often offering exclusive discounts and coupon codes just for subscribers.

Next we see our Putumayo 2012 Playground Sampler CD, valued at $5.00.

This CD offers up some new music with styles from all over the world for you and you kiddos to boogie and sing along with.  Bonus, it’s not Barney or Wiggles!  Now, come on, sure, we all love Barney and the Wiggles are great, but it is so nice to have something new to listen to for a change!  And this sampler also tells you exactly which albums and artists these tracks are from, so you can easily pick up more non Barney/Wiggles music to listen to from time to time.  My kids love to dance, even little Saraphina, so music is a big win in our casa!

Babyganics Toy & Table Cleaner $3.99

This is going straight into my diaper bag!  This is a safe, nontoxic cleaner, no parabens, sulfates, and no phthalates, that you can use for quick, easy clean ups.  I am planning on using it for out and about, you know like at a restaurant where the table or high chair is iffy, or even a quick spray to the shopping cart handle.  Having four babies, I know that if there is any way at all that the kid can get his or her mouth on something, it’s going to happen.  And with this awesome spray, at least I know that they will be chewing and drooling on a clean surface.  That is awesome in my book.

It looks like Sara found something delicious…

Wee Can Too Veggie Art Kit $19.99

Well, it is made from veggies, and Sara is a girl that loves her veggies…  This art kit is eco-friendly, organic, and completely edible.  Which is good, because Sara already got a head start…  Made from real veggies, these crayons and finger paints are a safe way for baby to have her very first go at a little masterpiece.  Since I have a whole gaggle of babies here, I think this would be an awesome project for all of them to partake in.  Outside.  Where they can get hosed down afterwards.  But seriously, getting messy is fun, and I can not wait to try these out!

Minted $35 credit.

Wow!  So, included in our box this month is an offer for a $35 credit to Minted.  This is a site where you can find invitations, birth announcements, stationary, art prints and more.  Their stuff is just gorgeous!  Pricey, but gorgeous!  Here is a thrifty tip for those wondering what to score at a good deal with their gift credit.  They have beautiful journals for $16.  Now, my head races with all sorts of awesome ideas to do with those journals!  First of all, journal in them!  Not your thing?  Have your kids journal!  They can write about their day, write stores, draw pictures.  Use it as a thankful journal as a family.  Write down five things that you are thankful for each and every day.  Gift them!  I think they would make beautiful, thoughtful gifts for teachers or tweens or teens, or anyone really.  When your mind is open, the possibilities are endless!

Another thing you can do, is click HERE, and use this referral credit for $25 added to your account.  Stack those two together and now you’re cooking!

Pop & Lolli Decal

I’m not sure how to value this one, except I can say that when I saw this adorable owl decal, I squealed with joy!  These decals are made from fabric, they are beautiful, reusable, and even recyclable!  Though, how you could part with any, I’ll never know!  Want to know something else completely awesome about this company?  With every set purchased, Pop & Lolli will provide educational materials and resources to a South African child in need.  Ummm……win-win, am I right?  Love it!

Hohner Kids Musical Instruments $7-$10

Last but not least, this month’s box contained a little baby tambourine so Sara can get her little groove on while she dances to her new cd.  This is what was making noise in her box that made her especially excited to rip it open!  This musical instrument collection is completely BPA and phthalate free, and I have to say, their packaging was minimal and very easy to get the toy out of.  Thank you for that, Hohner Kids!  So, on the one hand, Sara has this awesome, very well made, great quality musical instrument to play with and really spark her creativity with, thank you Citrus Lane!  On the other hand, Sara has a tambourine.  Thank you Citrus Lane?  This is a sometimes toy.  Mostly because of Sara’s siblings that like to shake it as loud and as hard as possible to see which kid gets ringing in the ears first.  Fun times!

So have you been tallying up the value of this box?  I come to roughly $70.  Holyawesomedeal Batman!  The regular price for this awesome subscription service is $25 including shipping, and as you can see by the value of this box, the contents far exceed that $25!  But I can help you save even more!

Try out your very own subscription to Citrus Lane by clicking HERE.  Once you follow that link, enter coupon code 20TODAY.  This will save you $15 on a 3 month subscription, $25 on a 6 month subscription, or $50 on a 12 month subscription.  When you subscribe for a full year, they also give you two months free.

We love Citrus Lane in our home.  As I have said before, the value of the products each month for the small price paid is just fabulous.  And much cheaper than a “quick” trip to Target for me.  I love being introduced to new brands and companies, and we have loved everything we have gotten so far, four months into our subscription.
