Have you heard of Mighty Nest? Mighty Nest is a company dedicated to selling eco-friendly home products and helping people make the transition to a greener lifestyle.
I have been a member for several months now and I would love to share my experience with you. I found this company on my own and have paid for my own subscription. I hope this Mighty Nest review helps you decide if it is right for you.
If you are unaware, Mighty Nest is a monthly subscription box. Subscription boxes are all the rage nowadays, and there are so many to choose from out there it can be overwhelming! It’s easy to see why subscription boxes are popular, though.
In a day and age where people are researching products more and more before making purchases, subscription boxes can be a great way to try things out at a low monthly cost before dropping big bucks.
They are also a ton of fun to get. It feels a little like Christmas to me each time my package comes in the mail.
What Is Mighty Nest?
When you sign up for Mighty Nest, you get a package (called a “Fix”) sent to your home once a month with a new eco-friendly product inside. This is an awesome perk for those that are interested in trying out some green, non-toxic, and healthier products in their home but don’t know where to start. It’s also great for those on a budget.
I’m still working at making my home a greener place, so Mighty Nest fits in perfectly with my values. What I love about Mighty Nest is that it’s only $11/month, so it fits within my budget easily!
Mighty Nest also has a shop on their site where members can get up to 35% off green products every day. That is an awesome feature if you loved a product and want to invest in more.
Mighty Nest Features
Mighty Nest has a lot of cool features and a wide range of products available.
For one, if you’re a control freak like me, you can log in to the site and choose your own product each month.
Or if you love surprises, there is no need to login and you can just let Mighty Nest do its thing! Fixes are handpicked for you each month unless you specify otherwise.
Mighty Nest has anything from glass & stainless steel food containers to silicone food “huggers” to skincare items to cleaning items to…you name it! If it’s eco-friendly, they probably have it.
You get one package with free shipping each month (the package your fix comes in) and you can add anything from their shop to your order to get free shipping on those items, too. However, you can order from their shop at any time if you’re willing to pay a shipping charge.
While the Mighty Nest monthly fix is only $11, you have a “Fix+” option you can select. When you select Fix+, you give Mighty Nest permission to send you products occasionally that cost a little more than the $11. You receive at least a 20% discount on the product in a Fix+ shipment.
This means you have the opportunity to receive better quality or more expensive items that you couldn’t get with the $11 fix, but you get them at a great discount!
You do not get a Fix+ item every month or even on a regular interval. When you select that you would like to be on the Fix+ plan, sometimes you have an $11 month, and other months it may be more expensive if they choose to send you a Fix+ product.
The Fix+ items are worth somewhere between $15-$30, and you always receive at least a 20% discount on the regular price of the item.
In my first month, I received 3 dryer balls.
Dryer balls are a great replacement for fabric softener and/or dryer sheets. Dryer sheets are especially toxic, so wool dryer balls are definitely the way to go. Some people love the scents of dryer sheets, and it’s pretty easy to use some essential oils on your dryer balls to DIY your own healthier scents. You won’t even miss the dryer sheets!
My second fix was a set of two Swedish dishcloths. Coincidentally, about two weeks prior to receiving this fix, I was in a small shop in a neighboring city’s downtown and saw some of these in there. I had never heard of them before, and the shop owner talked about them with me for a while, but ultimately I decided not to purchase any because they were $8 each at this shop.
Well, Mighty Fix happened to send me two of them two weeks later, so I ended up trying them out anyway! It was a better deal than what I saw in my local shop (I got two of them instead of only one for $8).
They are to be used in place of paper towels and are machine washable, can go in the dishwasher, and are biodegradable when they reach the end of their life. They are much more durable than paper towels and are better for deep cleaning. The worker in the shop told me they last about 6 months, but Mighty Fix did not give these any sort of expiration date. I no longer have mine anymore, but I will say they lasted about 5 months or so.
One side of them has a texture that can be used for scrubbing, and the other side is smooth. They also have adorable patterns on them. Swedish dishcloths dry out to a hard, thin material. But when you add water, they fluff up a bit and are ready to tackle all messes! You can see in the picture above what one looks like when it is dry and what it looks like when it’s wet–it gets bigger and softer.
(Forgive the dinginess of the one on the right–it was put to work cleaning up coffee grounds [rior to the photo).
Even though it wasn’t a product I would have picked on my own (due to already having microfiber cloths at home), I am really glad that I got some in my fix. I never would have known what I was missing otherwise. I do enjoy using them just as much as my microfiber. One perk of these over microfiber is they do not hold musty smells like microfiber can over time.
For my third fix, I decided to log in and choose my own item. I chose a silicone sandwich bag (Stasher brand) because I’ve wanted to get some for awhile.
Up until this point, I mostly used glass Tupperware containers, but I have two small children that can’t always be trusted with glass, so having a silicone sandwich bag or two on hand for packing snacks for the diaper bag is a good idea.
Update Oct. 2019: After trying several different kinds of silicone bags, Stasher is my absolute favorite! I love that this is the brand you get with Mighty Nest.
In my fourth month, I went in and chose my next fix: stainless steel Tupperware containers. I plan to pack my toddler’s snacks in it when he has to go to childcare.
Some highlights of other fixes I’ve received are mesh produce bags and beeswax wraps. I have loved all of my fixes!!!
The subscription box is $11/month. However, you can get your first month for only $3 if you use the sign-up link and Mighty Nest promo code below! Choose the promo code for the product that appeals to you most:
Try the MightyFix for only $3 and get a set of Tidy Dish Cloths as your first month with promo code TIDYSET3
Sign up here to try the MightyFix for only $3 and get 2 sheets of Bee’s Wrap for your first month with promo code BEESFIX3.
Try the MightyFix for only $3 and get 5 produce bags for your first month with promo code PRODUCEBAGS3
Mighty Nest promises that each item they send in their fixes is $11 or more in value every month.
If you commit to a full year at sign up, you can get the full year for $100 (which is like getting two months free!)
I think the subscription box is totally worth it if you want to start a gradual process of replacing some of your current products with more eco-friendly ones on a budget. It’s allowed me to try out some things I had never really heard of before at a great price. You can’t beat that!
However, when it comes to their shop outside of the monthly fix, I find that hit or miss. Even with the special “member-only pricing,” I find some products cheaper at Amazon.
I will continue to purchase the monthly fix subscription, but will probably price check anything I’m tempted to purchase from the shop outside of the “Fix.” I do think it’s possible to get a great deal in their shop, but not every single item (much like any other store out there, right? Great for some things, but maybe not for others).
Give Mighty Fix a try to work towards a greener home on a budget! Use code MIGHTYNOW to get your first fix for only $3!
