    For those who you use Facebook they may be aware of My Aquarium Box, a subscription based system sent once a month with a box of goodies.

    It appears largely confined to facebook and Youtube and has been available in the US for a little while but is now in the UK.

    What are peoples thoughts on this idea? Good, Bad, Don't give a toss or something completely different? I have my views which i disclose later as not to cloudy early post judgements.

    Personally i would prefer to choose the items i need myself other than a company saying and pushing a product you may not need. I see that you can choose a month to month basis if you want the products of 3 6 or 12 months. I suppose it depends if it would save you time going to the store to get the products or doing it this way and delivered to the door.

    Being honest that would be like me ordering this food thing they have here in my city. You pay each month and they send weekly messages to the door and instructions how to cook. It would cost the same to eat out every day lol Plus i like to choose my own things.

    Why would you want a box of random stuff? Makes no sense at all to me!

    Good luck with it like... but I'll continue to order plenty of boxes of stuff I do need.

    For me I see as waste, as your paying for stuff you may never use and would prefer to buy what I need .....I get the concept that will show you new things on the market etc that normally you wouldn't buy or use......but the majority may end up in the fishy cupboard you use with all the other crap
