This was just too interesting of an idea not to give it a try, so Heather and I are both trying out a fun new subscription mail service called Bobcat in a Box. Based on an XKCD comic strip, Bobcat in a Box is a bot that finds items on eBay and other ecommerce sites that cost $1 or less with free shipping, and sends you surprise packages in the mail. You can choose to get completely random packages, or you can provide a list of keywords for the bot to use when it is searching for items to buy. We both chose craft-related keywords, hoping to get some interesting supplies that we could use to make various projects.
We have also been documenting our Bobcat in a Box adventures on our YouTube channels! So far we’ve both received some pretty neat stuff, including lots of beads and other little embellishments. Want to see what we’ve gotten?
