best Black Friday food deals and best Cyber Monday food deals

Your refrigerator may still be full to the brim with Thanksgiving leftovers, but Cyber Monday is a great time to think ahead about getting in on the food blessing that is subscription boxes.

While many tend to think of Black Friday and Cyber Monday as days to save big bucks on flashy kitchen appliances and cookware, this is the time to save on sub boxes as they also drop in price. In other words, if a wine fridge isn’t in the cards this year, try a sub box as a way to treat yo’self instead. Or shop for that uncle who has everything—except a beer of the month subscription—or finally take the plunge and try a meal-kit delivery service. Below, the best sub boxes to buy now.

If you’ve ever struggled to get dinner on the table before the kids bedtimes, look to Hello Fresh.

Also, if you’re going out of town, you can always skip that week if you do it in advance. Or worse comes to worse, gift the box to a neighbor.See It
