Mighty Fix is a subscription by Mighty Nest that costs $10 a month. They send innovative products for your home that are sustainable and eco-friendly. There are a lot of great perks to the Mighty Fix.

First, it ships free. Not only that, but anything you add onto your order from their website will also ship for free.

You can donate up to 15% of the cost of your order to your child’s school. My child is a toddler, so I haven’t looked into how this works, but it sounds like a really great way to support education.

Also, each month they offer exclusive member-only prices on some of their products.

However, the best thing about it, is you can save $7 off of your first order by using the code INVITE7. That’s right friends. You can get a product for just $3 and free shipping. Which is why I snagged something this month, and I think I’m hooked.

Bee’s Wrap

I don’t think I’m the only one of the opinion that plastic wrap sucks. It does! The only thing it’s good at sticking to is itself (unless you want it to), and it’s bad for the environment because it’s one use and then you throw it away. Enter Bee’s Wrap, a product that you can use for up to a year to replace plastic wrap.

I received two wraps: the medium size which is 10″x 11″ and the large size which is 13″ x 14″. They are made of organic, cotton muslin coated in beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. The materials are naturally antibacterial, and help seal your food to protect it and keep it fresh longer.

I was scrolling through Pinterest and on a whim decided to make some homemade Poptarts. Essentially you start with pie dough, roll it out and cut it into squares, put in a filling (I used homemade strawberry jam and cream cheese), use a fork to seal the edges, and bake them. If you want step-by-step instructions there are lots of great recipes on Pinterest.

Anyway, after mixing up the dough, it needs to be chilled for at least an hour. Enter plastic wrap Bee’s Wrap! I chose the large wrap, although the medium probably would have been big enough also.

The Bee’s Wrap was super easy to use. The heat from my hands softened it and allowed it to mold around the dough. My fear was that it wasn’t going to stay sealed, but it did a great job. Also it smells great, so it was much more pleasant than plastic wrap in every way possible.

After the dough came out of the fridge I just rinsed the wrap using dish soap and cold water (hot water would melt the wax). After it dried, I just folded it up and stuck it in the drawer with my plastic wrap, so that every time I open the drawer to pull out the box I can use this instead.

In case you’re curious, here are my Poptarts. They came out really well, and went great with my coffee for breakfast! 🙂

The Bee’s Wrap products come in many sizes and varieties. You can buy them at Mighty Nest or even on Amazon (on Amazon there are even cool colors). I highly recommend this product, and look forward to what Mighty Nest is going to send me next month in my Fix.
