Why I Broke Up with my Stitch Fix Subscription

I love subscription boxes. It is so fun to get them in the mail and takes away a little bit of the hassle of shopping for yourself. Stitch Fix was no exception. I loved getting my boxes every month, and seeing what my stylist had chosen for me. A personal shopper? Yes please.

But I gave up my Stitch Fix subscription a few months ago. It wasn't something that I HAD to have anymore. If you ask people whether they love or would leave Stitch Fix, you get a pretty mixed opinion, which is why I wanted to share my view.

Stitch Fix isn't cheap. I guess to some people this might be affordable, but to buy the whole box, the totals were in the $200-$300 range every month. And I know that is on the low end. I personally don't spend $200 every month on clothes, so it didn't really make sense for me to continue requesting boxes. I also wrote in my reviews MANY times that the quality of the clothing was not worth the price.

There wasn't anything unique coming in the boxes. There were very few times when I HAD to have what came in my fix. Most often it was all stuff that I had seen online or at stores (like TJ Maxx and Burlington). I felt like I was just picking what I liked best and buying it so that I wouldn't waste my styling fee.

I had to choose between needs and wants. Dave and I are in a time of our life right now where we don't have a lot of extra cash. As much as it sucks to have to choose between your needs, wants, and investments for the future, it has to happen. I would rather spend money on the supplies needed (and fees, tuition, etc) for us both to be in school right now, than to buy clothes that I will probably only keep for a year or so before giving them to my sister. Is this #adulting?

I would love to hear if you have tried Stitch Fix, and what your opinion is! Do you love it, or could you leave it? This service is definitely something that I would love to revisit again in the future!
