Good morning, readers!
This seems to be the month where we’re talking about subscription services, doesn’t it? First, I wrote about how Blue Apron etc. isn’t for me, (and also discussed how varying subscription services are right for varying people).
Then I got to run a special for ePantry (a subscription service I do love) and today I’m gonna share an eco-friendly subscription service that I’ve been trying out for the last 6 months or so.
And then after that, I think I will have no more words to say about subscription services for a while! Ha.
This past summer, Money Saving Mom ran a post about an eco-friendly subscription service called Mighty Fix. She was offering 50% the first shipment and since I’m always up for reusable, eco-friendly items, I signed up, and I’ve been a member ever since.
The Mighty Fix, a subscription service provided by Mighty Nest, delivers an eco-friendly, non-toxic item or two, right to your front door each month. You pay $10 and no shipping, and the item(s) you receive are always worth $10 or more.
So, you get a bargain price on an eco-friendly item, gradually add more earth-friendly, non-toxic items to your home, pay nothing for shipping, and get a fun surprise in the mail each month.
And since eco-friendly items almost always replace disposable items, they’ll save you money over time. If you can stop buying plastic bags, paper towels, and plastic water bottles, you’ll end up with a lot more money in your pocket!
Another bonus of the Mighty Fix is that you can add any other item that Mighty Nest carries to your order and get free shipping on the whole shebang.
Since I already own a fair number of eco-friendly items, I thought I might get some repeats of things I already own, but so far it’s been almost all new-to-me items, and that would be even more true if you haven’t got a good stock of reusable items yet.
Here’s a sampling of what’s been in my fixes.
One month, I got these lunchskins, which replace plastic bags. They’re washable and wipeable, and the fabric is flexible enough for me to shove it into tight spaces in Mr. FG’s lunchbox.
Another month, I got a stack of organic dishcloths. I’m already an avid dishcloth user, of course, but it was great to get a fresh set, since some of mine are wearing out.
These stainless steel containers both came in one month’s fix. I like glass containers for leftovers (seeing what’s in your fridge is so important!), but stainless steel is great for packing things to eat on the go, as glass is rather heavy and bulky.
And I’ve also gotten mesh produce bags, and beeswax wraps (which replace plastic cling wrap).
After trying Mighty Fix on my own for months, I decided I liked it enough to recommend it, and I emailed the company to see if they could put together an introductory offer for you guys.
And they said yes!
Yay! I’m very excited to share this great deal with you guys.
So. Here’s how this will work: all of you Mighty Fix newbies can subscribe and get your first fix for only $5 instead of $10.
Aaand I get to tell you what’s in your fix.
You’ll get a 12-ounce Life Factory glass water bottle, which sells for $18 (even on Amazon! I checked), and you’ll only pay $5.
And you get free shipping.
I really, really do not like using plastic water bottles, even the reusable kind, so we’ve used stainless steel water bottles for years here at Chez FG.
Buuuut I know some people feel like the water tastes metallic in those bottles, so if you’re one of those, this bottle would be perfect for you! Glass doesn’t transfer any sort of flavors to the water, so you get a clean, pure taste.
The bottle comes with a silicone sleeve to protect the glass, and the sleeve comes all the way around the bottom of the bottle too, so you can’t accidentally thunk it down too hard on the counter.
All of the pieces are dishwasher safe, and you don’t have to take the sleeve off the bottle before you wash it, which is pretty sweet.
So, that’s the bottle you can get as your very first Mighty Fix.
When you sign up for the Mighty Fix, you are under NO obligation to continue the service…you can cancel at any time if you decide it’s not for you. There are no sneaky tricks or contracts or anything like that.
(If there were, I wouldn’t be recommending Mighty Fix to you!)
MightyNest has a limited number of water bottles for this promotion, so snag yours asap! The color of the bottle will be randomly selected from orange, turquoise, or black.

Have any of you all tried The Mighty Fix? I’d love to hear what you’ve thought of it thus far.
And do let me know if you run into any problems snagging this deal, and I’ll make sure you get taken care of.
Disclosure: I signed up with Mighty Fix using my own money, I signed up of my own accord, and I reached out to Mighty Nest to see if we could collaborate. So all enthusiasm for The Mighty Fix is honest and authentic…I pay for my fix each month with my own money! Mighty Nest set me up with an affiliate account after I contacted them, which means that if you sign up through any links on my blog, you help keep the lights on around here, at no extra cost to you.
