Why We Love Subscription Boxes

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

Subscription boxes are popular way to try new things each month and enjoy expanding your creativity, closet, pantry, wine rack, decor and more. There are even subscription boxes for children filled with interesting information and activities to help them explore the world from the comforts of home. There is literally a subscription box for every interest, hobby and need imaginable. I just typed in Google the words subscription box and found pages of them!

I personally love the clothing subscription boxes where you select a few categories and preferences, enter your size and then some mysterious non-personal shopper person selects things you might like. I’m not sure where they get those things that come in this box which adds to the mystery …and fun? The good news is you can return those things you don’t like.

Convenient yes.

Fun maybe.

Specific and custom to you no.

Cost of Subscriptions

The trouble with most subscription boxes is you don’t necessarily get to choose what comes in it. The items are pre-selected based on a theme or category that you may or may not have opted into and someone else makes choices for you. It can seem what’s in the box is not you at all or that it was just one of many thousands of boxes that are all alike.

Subscription boxes can be fun as it challenges you to try new things you may not have considered before but at the same time, what if you get a box of things you absolutely hate? What if it’s food or wine and it’s gross? What if you try it and don’t like it? What if your child gets a box of items they are not interested in at all?

I know, I know that would never happen right? You never see an unhappy person that has just opened a monthly subscription box have you?
