My Experience With Japan Crate

Rhia Reyes
I had been eyeing this Japan Crate box subscription for a while, but never jumped on it until recently. I love Japanese snacks, so once I found out that Japan Crate was offering free shipping within the US, I really had nothing to lose. There are 3 types of Japan crates to choose from: Mini, Original, and Premium. I decided to start small with the Mini crate. http://i1175.photobucket.com/albums/r634/RCubedBlog/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-11/PhotoGrid_1446936713644_zpsybjs0fxz.jpg   Per their website, the Mini Crate......

Coin is Finally Here! It’s Time To Shop. Way back in Nov 2013, I saw a video that blew my mind.
