I love the escapism that is shopping. I love aimlessly walking through the aisles and getting lost amongst all the new, shiny, pretty and glittery things. Understandably, many parents don’t have the luxury of casual shopping as they often have Miss 5 running off into the homewares section, while Mr 7 pushes over a display and Miss 2 hangs off your arm which is already holding 10kg of shopping.
Often it is actually necessary for parents to plan shopping trips to make the process easier, using websites such as Lasoo to find what to buy and where to buy before heading to the stores.
But advances in technology mean many parents are turning to new ways to shopping, such as online, direct purchasing and now subscription shopping.
A recent article in The Next Web- explores the future of shopping, specifically subscription shopping for kids clothes.
Created by the smart kids who created MySpace, Wittlebee is a company they sends you clothes on a monthly basis, delivering the basics to your door and essentially “putting your kids clothes on autopilot’. Jessica Alba is also experimenting with this selling method with her baby product range Honest which automatically sends subscribers the baby and household products needed for the life-stage of your child or your bundle preference.
Would you want to shop via subscription?
