First Six Months Conclusion

I still have not used $110 of product, though it looks like I will before the year is up. I still don’t plan on purchasing any of the items I’ve used, so “getting my money’s worth” in this case was more of “using things because they met a very low bar of ‘usable'”.

I do not plan on renewing my subscription in July.

We still have six months to go.

    1. Definitely. I read a bunch of good reviews and bought a year subscription, so I’m stuck with them for a while. Do you think Birchbox is any better? I’m eyeing that one next.
