Spoonie Box?

I came across this subscription service for Spoonies the other day. I am not sure how I feel about a business profiting off of chronically ill patients but I am also intrigued and wondering if this could be a useful support tool.

My concern is based on my past experience with subscription boxes. They usually consist of one or maybe two relatively nice interesting things you might like but don’t need and a bunch of smaller crap that no one needs. Ever.

If this follows the same pattern than I’m not sure it would be a worthwhile. Often in Spoonie households money is tight, so making sure you are getting the biggest bang out of every buck is important. This box is $39.99 a month, which is a lot to spend when you aren’t sure what you are getting.

However, the business was started by a Spoonie and they claim they are constantly searching for new and useful tools for managing chronic pain so it’s possible this service could be a way to easily be introduced to new-to-market items that might help manage our spoons.

What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Don’t care show me some T&A?

    $40. is a lot of money but I wonder if you may be able to try a month or two. I wouldn’t sign up for a subscription unless I was offered a one time delivery. Hey, we also do not go out a lot as spoonies, think of it as one eve out with the girls. Try something nice for yourself. ~Kim

      That’s a good way to look at it. Perhaps ordering the box and having fellow spoonies over for tea…
