This box company is falling apart. I received only 3 out of a 6 month subscription and have been emailing for months about the rest of my boxes. I am sympathetic to the founder for being ill and understand that some things are out of her control. But I want what was promised for my money, without dozens of excuses.

Critically important for the chronically
by C. written 4 months ago
Being sick sucks. There’s just no real way around that. Those of us who are always sick to one degree or another build so many little coping tricks into our days to get things done that the general population doesn’t even think about before walking blissfully through their day. And that’s where the SEB comes in. It’s packed with tips, tricks, shortcut products, and practical staples that you may not have known could make your day just that much easier. Plus there’s always several reminders that you are worth fighting for and that giving up is never really an option; and reminders and products to help us be a bit more gentle with ourselves on those really rough days. This box is important. It addresses a need that has never before been truly acknowledged in the consumer sphere. Yeah, it’s late sometimes. And that makes it all the more perfect. None of us can ever be on time every time. It’s part of chronic illness just as much as cozy pjs and hot tea. I love so much that it was founded and is curated by a chronic illness warrior herself. It makes every item more real, more beautiful and perfect because it was chosen (& sometimes even handmade by!) by someone who truly understands and gets what the chronic illness experience really is. There is no other subscription on the market that is this personal and this special on the market. This box is important. I’m so grateful to be able to subscribe.

For Spoonies, By Spoonies!

I was fortunate enough to afford a three month subscription to SEB. Not only were the boxes adorable with helpful and meaningful items, they were hand packed with care. An unexpected bonus with SEB is the fantastic community that Brittani has cultivated- I have met some truly wonderful Spoonie Siblings via SEB that genuinely care and show love, support, and compassion. I only have two minor nit-picky things that I hope improve. First, I understand that it’s a huge expense to curate, pack, and ship these boxes. However, as a company for Spoonies and by Spoonies, I wish there was a more affordable option for the box. $100+ for 3 months is steep when you’re sick... which leads me to my next and final issue with the box. On more than one occasion, a trip to my local Dollar Store or Dollar General would find me doing a double-take as a portion of some of the earlier boxes would have merchandise that is clearly from a $1 store. In my case, I received a makeup bag in my first box which was cute and held up well. Imagine my shock when I found the exact same pattern at my local store not a week later. *PLEASE NOTE : I love SEB. I love the dollar tree. I am not being nit picky about frugality! However, my disparity is in the price of the box and the quality of some items (that makeup bag didn’t last unfortunately for me, but I have a ton of makeup!). I will say that my last month of my box had a majority of quality & useful products, plus the amazing Kicking Sick book. I know that the “main item” can be a huge amount and that can end up affecting the overall quality of the box. I do know that effort has been made to ensure all items selected for a box are chosen with care, taking both expense & ROI into account. Find a happy medium - I’d prefer fewer quality items than a loaded box filled with mostly $1 store goods. As a business owner myself, I understand the process and I am not knocking SEB at all for it. Brittani is a driven and inspiring soul who genuinely wants to help her Spoonie family & I adore her. That said, happy medium = happy business owner = happy customers = thriving business owned by a chronically ill woman! The only reason I bring it up is that more than one friend have indicated this as a reason for not ordering. Why pay $X amount for a box when the box barely meets or exceeds the cost of it? A friend said “I’d order the main item online at cost then go to the store for the rest.” I’ve shown them the marked improvement in the quality of the contents which is enough to get them following SEB & seeing if they will continue on this trend - I have faith in Brittani’s business development and I will continue to support SEB & help grow the community as long as I am able. Hugs - Freiya, TMK
