The only kind of shopping I really love is for art/writing supplies and books. (Once in a great while I enjoy walking around the local antique co-ops.) But as often as I spend poking around at my local Blick, (I should probably just get a part time job there) I wish that I could have some items delivered to me on a regular basis. Certain colors of my favorite brand of acrylic paint and colored pencils? DEFINITELY. Pencil leads and gum erasers? Yes please.
One popular online retailer offers a “subscribe and save” option for a wide variety of consumables, which I’ve personally used for a hard to find shampoo and a particular brand of herbal supplements. In each case, I ended up with an unused stockpile so I’m not sure this option (on at least these items) worked out to my advantage.
If you could receive art or writing supplies as part of a subscription service, would you use it?
Have you ever placed a standing order for anything, anywhere?
