Big ol Box of Stuff, (BoBoS) is a family-run business made up of three people: My wife, Noelle, our 12 year old daughter, Judy and Me, Robert Rice. Oh and I almost forgot our Chief Supervisor, our cat, Cosmo. 

Why did I start Big ol Box of Stuff? Tired of receiving subscription boxes and having to settle for items (sometimes several) that I wasn't familiar with, I decided to create a "cafeteria style" custom subscription box where you fill out a questionnaire that identifies your favorite things, so you receive a monthly box filled with items you actually like. Launched in March 2015 with 49 orders, BoBoS has grown expediently with the help of our tremendously supportive followers helping to spread the word through Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, as well as over 300 unboxing videos on YouTube! Keeping in mind that each and every box is different, we ended our first year with just over 400 subscribers, and are currently at 500.

Our incredible BoBoS community has helped us become the success that we are, and has also helped with some great charity work over the past several months, including a Back-to-School Supplies drive, supporting the local MS Walk, a Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser auction, and Relief for the Flood Victims here in Columbia and the South Carolina Midlands after the floods in October 2016.

You may be asking, "With over 500 subscribers, don't you receive enough money to operate the business?" The answer is "Yes." However, we started, and still operate, with no true funding and no outside backing of any kind, so every dollar we make is being used to cover last month's expenses, and so on, and so on.

The money raised in this Kickstarter Campaign will help us get ahead in our inventory levels, office and shipping supplies; which in turn will help us not fall behind each month, ideally making BoBoS more efficient for you--our valued subscriber. We are also planning to expand to our friends beyond the US, who have been showing tremendous interest in receiving their own BoBoS, and we are dying to make that happen.

Risks and challenges

We have been in business for 17 months and every month we increase our sales volume by at least 5%. We have a strong following on: Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, as well as over 300 video unboxings on YouTube.
Getting a mystery box means there is always a chance you may not like the items inside your box. However, with BoBoS, that chance is greatly decreased because we follow the questionnaire that YOU fill out for your box, and use it to create a box of the stuff YOU love.
Since each and every BoBoS is completely different, sometimes you may have to wait over a month to receive yours. Occasionally, certain hard-to-find items will either be specially ordered or need to be hunted down for your BoBoS, and this takes time: No Cookie Cutter Boxes Here.
