Subscription Boxes: My Newest Addiction
"I hate shopping!"
"I don't want to take my clothes taking to try on this dress, shirt, jeans, etc."
"Why can't I just shop and try things at home?"
If you've had the "I hate shopping" conversation with yourself at any point in your life, then subscription boxes are for you!
Subscription boxes are a convenient and cost effective way to get the products you need delivered to your front door. I'm new to this phenomenon but I immediately found myself excited to try out these new products and businesses.
There are tons of subscription services on the market right now; choosing the right one can be difficult. Here are three subscription services I'm totally in love with and I highly recommend you try.
Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription service. You pick the style and clothing items you like; and a stylist creates a wardrobe for you based on your preferences. Boxes can be delivered monthly, quarterly, at whatever frequency you choose. I ordered a box for my birthday in April and received 5 items: a dress, lightweight sweater, blouse, jeans and sandals. Of the 5 items I kept two, the blouse pictures below and a pair of boyfriend jeans. I'm very happy with the items I kept. I highly recommend this service not just because of its ease of use but for the stylist's assistance. Too often we get stuck in a clothing rut, so having someone else pick out clothing for you can push your wardrobe out its comfort zone...and that's definitely a good thing! Order your Stitch fix box using this link: www.stitchfix.com.
Rocksbox is monthly jewelry subscription service. You are sent three pieces of custom selected jewelry per month; chosen by your assigned stylist. I received dangling earrings, a cocktail ring and bar necklace pictures below. All items were incredibly beautiful. It was so hard not keeping them all. In the end, I chose to keep the necklace. I just love how dainty and cute it is. If you'd like to try this service, go to www.rocksbox.com and use the code: MISSKWAME76XOXO to get your first month free.

As a vegan, I can never have too much fruits and veggies in my daily diet. The challenge I often encounter is finding organic produce. Yes, Whole Foods has become my second home since I becoming a vegan, but as great as the store is not all of their produce is organic. So when I found Endlessly Organic on Instragram, I was thrilled to find a service that could not only deliver quality produce but seasonal organic produce. I ordered the Medium Veggie box which comes with 4-6 fruits and 8-10 vegetables. I'm excited for this service because it'll mean less trips to the market and it will encourage me to try new foods I wouldn't have otherwise thought about trying. Go to their website to see if Endlessly Organic delivers in your area www.endlesslyorganic.com.
Now it's your turn, have you tried any monthly subscription services? Which one would you recommend? Are you interested in trying any of the services I suggested?
