July 2016 Stitch Fix Review

  I stopped getting boxes from Stitch Fix last year after committing to only buy clothes from ethical sources.  I’m not saying Stitch Fix is unethical, I had received some items in the past from China though, and I’m no longer comfortable buying things made in China. And let’s face it, I’m impulsive.  So when […]

Darling Dollars: Taming Our Food Budget
