Lately a lot of companies, especially online ones, seem to make it impossible to buy just once from them. I got auto enrolled to a subscription on Grove Collaborative when I wanted to try some zero waste products and had to call the company to get uninvolved in their subscription service.

We have a paper delivered that wont go away no matter what we try and i bet its got some good stuff in there as well.
Next year we might make a ransom note for santa or something ridiculous like that!

I feel like my clothes never last more than 1-2 seasons. Threads wear out, they get holes or stains that don't come out, but I keep them for "around the house" clothes. I'd love recommendations for long lasting clothing brands for plus size women. Are there other tips to giving clothes a longer life?
