Have you heard of Mighty Nest? Mighty Nest is a company dedicated to selling eco-friendly home products and helping make the transition to a greener lifestyle affordable and easy. I have been a member for over three 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. My husband and I budget a modest amount of money for each of us every month to spend how we wish. What I love about Mighty Nest is that it’s only $10/month, so it fits within my spending money 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 login 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 skin care 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 anytime if you’re willing to pay a shipping charge.
My first month, I received 3 dryer balls. That is a pretty standard first Fix, but that is not always the case (see the “Cost” section for a promo code for $3 for two beeswax wraps!) I already had a few dryer balls, but my experience with them is that they help out a lot more when you have at least 5 in a load, so I was happy to get some more! I believe I only paid $3 for that Fix, so it was a great deal for me.
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 awhile, but ultimately I decided not to purchase any. I already have microfiber cloths at home, and they were priced about $8 for one of them.
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 ($10 for two of them instead of 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. Mine are still going strong, anyway.
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 this morning.
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 like that I could stick these in the dishwasher to clean if I forgot to get them in the laundry. Having that option is great. 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 because I’ve wanted to get some for awhile. I mostly use glass tupperware containers, but I also 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.
For that same reason, I went in and chose my next fix already: a stainless steel tupperware container. I plan to pack my toddler’s snacks in it when he has to go to childcare.
Update 6/2019: Since writing this post, I have received those little stainless steel containers, another stasher bag, some 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!
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.
Mighty Nest promises that each item they send in their fixes is $10 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 their shop. 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 BEESFIX2018 to get two sheets of beeswax wrap as your first fix for $3.
Alternatively, use this link and code DRYERFIX2018 to sign up for a $3 first fix of three dryer balls. (Yes, both of these codes are current even though it is 2019).
