Five Things: Subscription Services We Wish We Could Afford

keysmash five things featured image

Every Friday we’ll pick a theme and then five things (hence the name! We’re so original!!!!!) that fit that theme. Feel free to make your own choices in the comments, or send them to us on Twitter. This week we’re talking about some of the subscription services we wish we had the cash to sign up for.

Liz’s pick: Owlcrate (via)

new-key-avi-liz-50x50God, my list for this topic is SO LONG. #1 on it would be justifying my Julep box every month, instead of constantly skipping it. But since I technically already subscribe to that service, I didn’t want to choose them. I could’ve chosen any of the services Meg and Mel picked, or one of the comics boxes, but lately I’ve been envying my pals who get to open their Owlcrates every month. YA lit and lit based products delivered to my door every month sounds like a DREAM. Plus, it’s Harry Potter-esque, which is always a plus. Maybe I’ll reward myself with a subscription if I’m good with my money this year. (Pffffft.)

Meg’s pick: MeowBox (via)

new-key-avi-meg-50x50I do splurge on BarkBox and it’s 100% worth it, but I don’t think my cats would appreciate their own box enough for me to spend money on it. I mean, let’s be real here. But if I didn’t have to worry about the cost I would definitely get one for each of my cats every month.

Meg’s pick: Flowers (via)

new-key-avi-meg-50x50There are a lot of different companies that do monthly flower deliveries but I like the one I linked above because their stuff is GORGEOUS and it’s all sustainably farmed. Hey, this actually kills two birds with one stone because my cats would LOVE fresh flowers to chew on and destroy delivered right to their door every month.

Mel’s pick: Gwynnie Bee (via)

new-key-avi-mel-50x50Gwynnie Bee is basically Netflix but instead of sending you DVD’s for a monthly price they send you clothing to rent. It’s for sizes 10-32 and offers free dry cleaning. You even have the option to buy something at a discounted rate if you really love it. Once you’re done with an item you pop it back into a prepaid box and off it goes. The next thing in your closet (dvd que) will be sent once they get the item. I love the idea but can’t justify the price tag. Whomp Whomp.

Mel’s pick: Blue Apron (via)

new-key-avi-mel-50x50I love the idea of having things I need for dinner delivered to my house. Sadly I can’t justify it. Between picky eaters and limited menus, it’s too much much to pay for basically making myself solo dinners.

    Personally I’ve never really gotten interested in the subscription boxes. Even like the food ones just don’t say ooooo me
