Walmart Beauty Box Subscription

If you have pondered over the idea of joining a monthly retail subscription, consider the Walmart Beauty Box.  Yes, Walmart.  They have a subscription that gets shipped out on a quarterly basis.  The items that come shipped to you are practical cosmetic or toiletry items that you could use or gift to someone else.  I have been a member for a little over a year now.  For $5 each quarter/season, this INCLUDES shipping which makes this a deal!  That’s only $20 a year.  In the past, I have received a full-sized lipstick from a notable drugstore brand line, a sample of face cream that I have seen retail for $10 and usually a full-sized sample of something… in addition to foil pack samples, travel size items and even coupons.  They feature a good mix of new and existing products with no strings attached.

The photo above shows a sample of my summer 2016 Walmart Beauty Box.  In this package, I received a total of 7 products– including 1 full-sized deodorant stick.  Pretty nice!  I love how I can take some of these items with my when I travel.

The packaging below is how the samples are sent to you in this box.  You will also receive an email confirmation letting you know that the item has shipped.

Lego Minifigure Organizer & Display Case

My son is obsessed with all things Lego, especially the Lego Minifigures.  It’s been a challenge to try to organize them.  I have purchased and tried it all!  How do I keep the pieces and accessories together?  Group them together as a collection?  Display them so that he can appreciate it?  Create less clutter?  I searched all over and finally came up with a great find!

I found this great case on eBay.  What’s nice about this is that you can fit about 99 Lego Minifigures on this rack.  You do have to alternate a few of the arms forward and backwards so that they fit.  You can barely notice.  The rack does not have a backing as it rests against the wall. It’s light enough to hang on your wall with a few nails or screws.  So I don’t anticipate that this will fall off the wall, even with it filled as it is still pretty light.  I found this to be a good buy, especially if it frees up storage space and looks this cool!  My son loves this as he can’t wait to show this off to his friends.

Here are a few more views of the case so that you can see if this might work for you.  Happy organizing!


I love the fact that each row has  a Lego bump or stud (as they call it) on it so that you can easily place each Minifigure so that it doesn’t pop off.


Here is a view of one of his sets.  It makes it really easy to see which character he has.  In addition, I can easy keep each accessory attached to the Minifigure without placing this in another case.


This worked for me!  Do you have any Lego organizing tips that work for you?
