Sparking Joy Series: What Subscription Box Item(s) Brings You Joy Right Now?

After nine consecutive days of waking up at 6AM in preparation for getting two Squeakers adjusted and ready for morning school drill, the day of rest has arrived.

And what do I do? Blog near midnight.


I created a Sparking Joy series to open discussion on what subscription box item(s) are bringing you joy right now. For our new readers, I got this idea from a previous discussion here regarding the KonMari Method of organization which basically is keeping what “Sparks Joy” in your life and discarding what doesn’t.

What is Sparking Joy for me now is…

Silicone Stemless Wine Glasses

Silicone Stemless Wine Glasses (From FabFitFun Summer 2019)

I actually use these in the hallway bathroom for my Squeakers which is where they get ready for school in the morning shortly after 6AM.


I totally noted less “droppage” since utilizing these cups.

Perhaps maybe because silicone doesn’t make a noise? Regardless, the Squeakers must have good sopping up skills because I cannot detect spillage. 

I actually was worried that these cups would cause spillage or unneeded squeezing fits. But it actually caused some confusion for them. I took away the spilly, noisy plastic cups and replaced them with these silicone cups and the Sqeakers thought that these were Mommy’s cups/container/pouch for “Mommy Stuff” so they did not touch it. When I realized that the Squeakers were getting spilly, noisy plastic cups from the kitchen to the bathroom I let them know that those fancy pink cups were theirs! They were curious about them and it was quite a cute show.

But now the Squeakers use them and it is so easy to toss them in the dishwasher.

And then put them back when I notice spilly, noisy plastic cups reappearing in the bathroom. 

I do have to say that FFF does frustrate me but I lack the time and energy to shop at TJMaxx and company, so FFF fulfills that void for me since I love subscription boxes and online shopping.

I guess messy aisles gets swapped for warehouse issues. 

If you haven’t gotta the time to shop discount in real life, give FFF a try and click here!

    I loathe going into stores like TJ Maxx. They’re always so dirty, especially Ross ugh

      Ross is a hot mess. TJMaxx sometimes. I used to love Filene’s Basement and Loemanns but they closed out over here.

    Aww, that’s such a cute story! Great idea using them for the kiddos in the bathroom. I don’t think I’ve ever seen cups like these before, but they’re cute.

    Ross isn’t very good. TJ Maxx and Marshalls are my jam! The products and cleanliness vary by location and they’re hit or miss. I don’t shop in many other stores, but lately I’ve been frequenting Burlington (Coat Factory) for baby and toddler clothes, shoes, etc. I recommend checking it out if you have one near you.

      Burlington has cute baby stuff! There aren’t that many here so once in awhile the opportunity presents itself and we take a looksee. Never bought coats from there though.
