In addition to my POPSUGAR monthly box subscription, I also wanted to try out the Escape Monthly travel-themed box.  Each month, the idea is that you will receive a destination-specific box with goodies from that country or city.  In addition, each month, one subscriber will be selected to win a vacation to the current month’s theme destination. Escape Monthly will pay for the winner’s airfare from a major U.S. hub and two nights of accommodations, up to $1000. Winners are selected randomly from our members.

Cost: $49.95, but with a coupon code (code: YOURESCAPE) they are currently offering a perpetual $10 off each month, bringing it down to $39.95.

The March box was Ireland themed.  I'm going to be honest, I was pretty underwhelmed.  First, silly as it may seem, I was most excited to get an Ireland guide book like past boxes contained.  There was none.  The food was ok and the bath items I probably won't use.  I'm going to give it another month, which is supposedly Mexico for April, and reassess my subscription.
