I, much like everyone in the world, use a lot of products and utilize a lot of companies on a daily basis. Here are a few of my favorites.
Dropbox – Dropbox is a free cloud service that you can access from anywhere. They have an app for iphone and Android, and you can upload photos and files from anywhere. I use this service quite a bit for my blog, as it’s the easiest way I’ve found to get files from my phone to my computer without having to plug it in and wait for everything to load. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to transfer files from device to device, and share large files with friends and family without having to worry about file sizes and email limits.
You can, of course, upgrade your plan from the free 2GB plan to the $9.99 per month plan with 1TB of space, or the $15 per month plan with unlimited space. The best part about Dropbox is that you can refer friends and complete tasks to get more space. I have the free account right now, and I have over 50GB of space on my Dropbox. I could probably back up all of my photos on my Dropbox and still have space left.
Loot Crate – Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for nerdy people like myself and my husband. A one month subscriptions is $13.37 plus shipping, which varies slightly based on size, weight, and company that they ship with that month. Usually, the price for the monthly subscription ends up costing around $20, and it’s totally worth it. They have exclusive items, t-shirts, POP Vinyls, comic books, digital downloads, figurines, candy, and a variety of items in every box. It changes every month, and it’s always a great surprise. For every person you refer to Loot Crate, you get $5 off your subscription, so you could potentially have a free subscription. You’re also entered in a contest every month for the Mega Crate, which usually has a game system or other large ticket item.
I’ve also heard that they have excellent customer service, but I’ve never had any problems that I needed to contact their customer service.
Joss & Main – Joss and Main is a home decor website that has some great deals on everything from rugs to couches to wall art. They curate events every week based on specific themes such as “High Glam” or “Coastal Christmas”, and then fill the site with items that fit into the theme. Everything is on-trend and fit into a variety of styles, so if you don’t see something you like one week, you can just log in the next week for something completely different. Everything that I’ve ordered from them is high quality and nicely priced.
E-meals – We recently started using E-meals, and I’m a huge fan. Every Wednesday, and site comes out with a new weekly meal plan. Since there’s only two of us right now, we pick 2 or 3 of the meals from the plan (we got the family plan because we like leftovers) and but the ingredients needed. After a few weeks of that, I discovered that on the app, you can skip the meals that you don’t plan on making, and it adjusts the shopping list, so you can just shop off the list! The meals taste great and really work for us. Chris loves that they have a lot of casseroles and easy to make things, and we don’t have to do a lot of planning on our own because it’s all done for you!
BluHost – BluHost is the hosting company for SwankyLuv. They have great customer service, and have a lot of things to offer with their hosting service.The prices are great, and I don’t have to think about it when it’s time to renew, because everything just auto-renews every year. My one regret was not spending more up front and going for the 3 year plan to begin, but you live and learn!
