The first box was my Goodies box. I was disappointed that aside from the cookie mix, everything was a tiny sample size. Although I wasn't super impressed by the box, for $7 I can't really complain. They've gotta make money somehow.
With it being back to school season, the theme of this month's box was Box Tops for Education. I guess each of these products has a Box Top on their packaging. I'm not positive though since only one of the seven items I received came in a full-sized box.

If you'd like a Goodies invite, leave your email in the comments. The first five get it. By using my code you'll be able to skip the line, and you'll start out with 100 points. I think there is another 100 available for filling in your profile. At 300, you get a free box.
The second box I received was Caesar's BarkBox. Is it sad that I was more excited about the dog box than I was about the people box? Although the $29 price tag is a bit hefty for a box of surprises, I was much happier with the contents of this box vs the other one. If you sign up for the six month plan, the cost is as low as $19. And it doesn't hurt that I got this one free, thanks to Megan.
Reading the email description about this box already had me excited. They mentioned playing in the water, and even though Caesar doesn't know it yet, he'll be swimming like crazy once we move to Hawaii. Caesar usually isn't a fan of treats, but I'm hoping that since these are something new, he'll enjoy them.

Next month I'll be trying out Love With Food, as a recommendation from one of my pledge sisters.
