One of the things I’ve really enjoyed over the last few years has been the redefinition of subscription programs. Where once subscriptions were limited to magazines and newspapers, we can now subscribe to beauty product samplers, snack boxes, freshly roasted coffee, and even spices.
My friends over at MightyNest recently launched one of these programs. It’s called the MightyFix and is both simple and entirely fantastic. The deal is that for $10 a month they’ll send you full sized product that is actually worth at least $10 (and often, will have a far higher price point) and they’ll ship it for free. What’s more, anything else you want to add to your FIX from their site also ships for free.
For August, the MightyFix is featuring these snazzy Lunchskins. Made from European pastry bags, they are lightweight, moisture-proof, and dishwasher-safe. Each MightyFixer gets one sandwich size and one snack size, which is fantastic if you’re gearing up for the lunch packing season.
Because they’re a rock star partner, MightyNest is offering a MightyFix deal to all Food in Jars readers. If you sign up using the widget below in the next two weeks, you’ll get August’s fix (the Lunchskins!) for free.
And, if your lunch gear needs a refresh (or you need a few more Lunchskins, so that there’s no fighting over who gets it in their lunch today), you could add some containers like these or these to your order, without paying a cent more in shipping (I do so love a bargain).
Each item featured in the MightyFix will be money saving (because it will replace a disposable product), easy to clean (a must for things that come in contact with food), and will be plastic-free (no funky chemical leaching). And with anything you buy on MightyNest, they’ll donate 15% of your purchase back to the school of your choice.
I took my sandwich-sized Lunchskin out for a test drive on Tuesday. I was teaching a class that was a two-hour drive away and so packed myself a simple dinner to eat in the car on the way home. I had a couple pieces of fruit, some cashews for munching, and a peanut butter and plum jam sandwich on whole wheat.
The Lunchskin kept my sandwich fresh for hours. I wiped it out with a damp, soapy sponge when I got home and perched it on a wooden spoon in the dish drainer. By morning, it was dry and ready to hold a sandwich again. I’m hopeful that I’ll never have to buy a box of plastic sandwich bags again.
Disclosure: MightyNest is a Food in Jars sponsor. They sent me the gear you see pictured here at no cost to me. However, every word I said about the MightyFix comes from the heart. I think it’s a really nifty program and I’m seriously tempted to subscribe. I’ve already bought a gift subscription to my sister, who has two young boys who are incredibly hard on things like lunch containers and water bottles.
