Hi.

Welcome to Value Minded Mama. This is my happy place where I document my adventures in style, thrifting, saving money, travel and being a SAHM. We're adding another little love to our brood in November, and we're so excited to become a family of four. Love that you're here!

New Monthly Subscription Service

New Monthly Subscription Service

In this tech based world we live in, there is no real need for snail mail. We can literally get everything we need sent to us via email (bills, money, pictures, evites, e-gift codes). If you really need something, you run out and get it. But I remember when the mail delivery service was still the main way you corresponded (no one really trusted email with the important things). When I was younger, I would write letters to pen-pals & friends and send/receive little gifts through the mail.

 

I think others have started to see the value and fun in getting mail again, because companies have embraced the online shopping experience. I know that's not the only reason they do it, but it's still exciting when your package comes in the mail. But with online shopping, you know exactly what you're getting.

 

Beauty companies have created these amazing things called subscription boxes, where you pay a monthly fee to get products delivered to your door. Some are better than others, but they are usually a surprise. Which in my opinion, is the best of all! Who wouldn't want a surprise hand delivered to their door?! I'm here to share with you another surprise subscription service that is affordable, will have you looking forward to mail day, and promises something you'll love.

I'm talking about Demures monthly earring subscription service! Demure is an online boutique, run by my friend Rachel. She's local to Columbia and carries elegant, classically simple clothing, accessories and jewelry. She has recently offered her customers a monthly subscription service for earrings. It's $10 a month, and you can sign up for a month to month service, cancel-able at any time. Or you can sign up for a year, and save 2 months! The exciting thing about her service is, the earrings are a complete surprise. You don't know what you're getting till the day of, but you can be sure they will be on trend, beautiful and unique. Here are some of the pieces she's offered:

 

In my opinion, they are extremely easy to style and will add a little something extra to your look. You can dress them down or up. They are so chic and beautiful, everyone will be asking you, “where did you get your earrings?!”

Here's a little tip: if you're unsure about signing up for a service where you don't know what the product is, think of it as a gifting opportunity. Say you get a pair of earrings that are not your particular style, you could give them as a gift. I always have a few items on hand for last minute gifts. This earring subscription service could be a perfectly easy/no hassle way for you to have some last-minute gift stock. Of course, chances are, this will not even be an issue for you. If you do find yourself not loving that particular month's selection, at least it was only $10 and you now have a gift saved for someone special that was delivered right to your door. Now that's my kind of shopping!

**Don't forget to sign up before the 15th, other wise you'll have to wait an extra month to get your earrings!!**
