After reading this thread about sample boxes over on the BPAL forums, I kind of want to subscribe to one.

The problem is that judging by the reviews on that same thread, I'm probably only going to like about half of what I get (on average). While that's still more cost effective than going out and buying full size things at the store (and ending up using less than a sample size amount of most of them), it's not ideal.

So, if I did end up getting a sample box of some sort, would anybody be interested in splitting it with me?

I can think of a couple different ways to manage the split, but we can figure out exactly how to do it once we've picked which box to get and know (generally) what sort of stuff it will have and how much it will cost.

Following up on this post, I've narrowed it down to three boxes that seem like they'd be good choices.

1. The Little Black Box
2. BlissMoBox
3. My Dream Sample Box

I also decided that rather than try to arrange in advance to split a subscription, I'll just sell anything I don't want to friends who do. To make it fair, anything I sell will be at what it cost me or less if I opened it before realizing I didn't want it.

So (for example) if the box I decide on costs $15 a month, and has 10 items in it, I'd offer the things I didn't want for $1.50.

Does that seem fair? Has anyone else tried sample boxes? What did you think?
