I previously wrote here about subscription fatigue, and the challenges of people controlling budgets with an ever-growing array of subscription options. About two weeks ago I began a new round of audits to make sure I wasn’t paying for something I hadn’t been using as of late, and terminated a couple of subscriptions I could no longer justify.
I forgot about a whole class of subscriptions like Birchbox and Dollar Shave Club in my original analysis, but awesome tech journalist Becky Worley did a piece talking about, and briefly reviewing, a number of them for Yahoo! recently. It’s a fun and interesting watch and read, and worth it if you find those types of services appealing. Some are more fun, others more utilitarian, but all have an impact on budget.
