57 Things You Can Get by Monthly Subscription

You’ve heard of the Book-of-the-Month Club, no doubt, a handy way for bibliophiles to feed their obsession without leaving the house. I’ve personally been a member of a fruit-of-the-month club and a chocolate-of-the-month club too. But the range of items you can receive by mail, once a month by subscription, is truly staggering. This list barely scratches the surface, but it does provide a pretty good cross-section of the kinds of things you can subscribe to in this way. (For the purpose of this list, I include only physical items, not things delivered in digital form over the Internet.) You can read more about ___-of-the-Month Clubs at Interesting Thing of the Day.

  1. 37 Foods by Subscription | The Geeky Gourmet said:

    […] Over on SenseList today, I posted a list of 70 different things you can get in the mail every month with a subscription. More than half of these are foods. I’ve personally been a member of a fruit-of-the-month club and a chocolate-of-the-month club, and for a while we subscribed to the Illy a Casa program to get coffee delivered every month. My overall impression of these programs is that the quality and convenience tend to be quite good, though that the prices seem out of proportion, at least if you have decent local markets. Even so, who wouldn’t like getting cookies or wine in the mail every month? […]
