The MightyFix is a monthly subscription service that helps you implement small but mighty changes to make your home healthier and less wasteful. Here’s everything you need to know about getting started with the MightyFix, and how it can serve you in your natural living journey! Thank you to MightyNest for sponsoring this post.
You’ve probably heard the advice before that when you want to overhaul an area of your life, baby steps are key. Take small, gradual steps toward your goal so you don’t get overwhelmed. That sounds familiar, right?
I took that advice to heart when we started our natural living journey nearly a decade ago. Well, mostly. Sometimes I just got so excited about everything I was learning that I jumped in fast with both feet! But most of the time, the changes we tested and implemented gradually were the ones that stuck.
We stopped buying conventional cleaning supplies and started making our own.
We learned about harmful ingredients in makeup, sunscreen, and skincare, and changed our buying habits.
We started looking to reusable alternatives in the kitchen and around the house, and cut back on disposables.
A lot of the changes we made I’ve taken for granted now because we’ve been living with them for so long. But I know that for someone just starting to cultivate a more natural home, it can be immensely overwhelming when you think of all the things you want to change. That’s why I’m happy to find companies like MightyNest who can simplify that switch to natural living.
How MightyNest can help you make small, sustainable changes in your home
MightyNest is a small business on a mission to take the overwhelm and guesswork out of cultivating a natural home. Their online store contains hundreds of carefully-vetted products from skincare to kitchen wares to children’s toys. Every product is screened to be free of known toxins such as BPA, PVC, phthalates, lead and other heavy metals, melamine, chemical flame retardants, parabens and other harsh chemicals. MightyNest also interviews all its manufacturers to check the quality of ingredients and their safety testing standards.
To make it easier to embrace healthy changes in your home, MightyNest offers a monthly subscription service called The MightyFix. For $11 per month, members receive a surprise item to help them tackle one healthy change. You might get a glass water bottle to help you replace single-use plastics, or a pack of wool dryer balls so you can ditch dryer sheets.
Every item is easy to incorporate into your daily life, and comes with a tip sheet for getting started. Personally, I use every item I’ve received from the MightyFix on a weekly–or even daily!–basis. Our items from MightyNest have helped us save money, and frequent use has proven their quality.
Besides the monthly Fix, there are other benefits to subscribing to the MightyFix. Members get discounts on other items available in the online shop, and they always ship free when you add them to your next Fix!
MightyFix offer for Richly Rooted readers!
If the MightyFix sounds like your cup of tea, I’m happy to say that MightyNest has opened up a new offer to my readers! You can get your first Fix for just $3 (and free shipping), with the code ROOTEDPRODUCE. Click through this link to activate the offer.
With this first fix, you’ll receive a set of 5 Flip + Tumble Produce Bags (pictured throughout this post!). After that, your subscription will continue for $11/month. You’ll get a surprise in the mail each month with something that contributes to a healthier, more natural home.
How to use the Flip + Tumble Produce Bags from your MightyFix
There are all kinds of uses for these durable mesh bags:
- bring to the grocery store or farmer’s market to carry home fresh produce
- use to store small toys
- bring to the beach to carry sand toys, sunscreen, hats, etc.
- use to organize shoes, socks or toiletries in your suitcase
You can say goodbye to those flimsy, easily-torn plastic bags in the produce aisle. The bags in your MightyFix are made of strong, fine-mesh polyester that you can reuse indefinitely. Wash them in cold water in your washing machine or by hand, and hang to dry. The bags also have different colors of tags, so if you want to color code them, you can!
MightyFix subscription: things you might be wondering
If you’re like me, you probably appreciate having all the facts before signing up for something. Here are some questions I’ve heard from readers when I’ve promoted the MightyFix in the past:
Can you cancel your subscription any time?
Yes, if you are on a month-to-month plan, you can cancel any time. If you pre-pay (at a slight discount) for the whole year, then you will need to wait until the initial 12-month period is up.
Can you get a refund if you get a Fix you don’t like?
No. Because of the discounted item and the free shipping, MightyNest can’t accept returns on the monthly Fix. For items you don’t want, I always recommend giving them as hostess gifts or housewarming presents–or gifting them to anyone who would love it!
What if you get an item for kids, but you don’t have kids?
This won’t happen. The MightyFix only includes items that are useful for any household, regardless of whether or not you have children.
Can you ever choose what you get for your monthly item?
Yes, you can. If you don’t want a surprise, you can choose from a list of popular Fixes. In addition, you can fill out your Profile page with preference details (for example, specify that you’re vegan or that you don’t want to receive body care products).
Can you still get the MightyFix if you live outside the United States?
I have a lot of readers who don’t live in the U.S. If you’re in Canada or Australia, you can get the MightyFix for a small shipping fee ($3 CAN and $4 AUS). For more details on shipping to your location, check out this page.
Can you change the frequency of your Fix?
You can. You can skip a month or pause shipments, or have your Fix delivered every other month instead of monthly.
Can you give the MightyFix as a gift?
Yes, you can gift a 3-, 6-, or 12-month subscription. You also get to pick the recipient’s first Fix, if you like!
If you want a doable, stress-free way to make healthy changes in your home, I hope you will give the MightyFix a try! Our highly-processed, consumption-crazed culture doesn’t mesh well with simple living, but the MightyFix does.
