I love crafting and DIY projects, but I cannot stand it when I get started on a project only to discover that I don’t have one of the tools I need! Have you ever started a project only to discover you were missing the one tool or gadget you needed the most? If so then you are going to love this subscription box I recently discovered called The Handy Box.

The boxes are shipped around the middle of the month in a sturdy brown cardboard box stamped with the company’s name. Inside you will find 3 to 5 different tools and/or handy gadgets. You will also find a product information card that includes a description of the items inside that month’s box.
