Timothy Ferriss Quarterly Box Subscription Review #TIM07
Timothy Ferriss is one of the original Quarterly curators, and the most popular curator on Quarterly’s site.
Here is Quarterly’s bio on Tim:
Timothy Ferriss wrote the #1 national bestseller The 4-Hour Chef. The theme of his Quarterly mailings is obsession—the ideas and objects he can’t get out of his head.

Good to Know: Quarterly accepts returns if you aren’t happy with a box!
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why they were selected. For this box, Tim included items that “will help you enhance cognitive function, improve fitness and sleep, and (potentially) transform your approaches to money, the markets, and life in general.”
Tim’s letters are a little different – he covers each item in depth in a video.
This device is an activity tracker – but unlike a lot of similar devices on the market it has a 6-month battery and doesn’t need charged. I’ve tried a few of these devices before: Jawbone (it stopped working after a month) and FitBit (I just stopped wearing it after a while), but I’m thinking I’ll give this a try. For me, having to remember to charge FitBit and put it back on was somewhat of a barrier. And this gets good reviews on Amazon so I’m intrigued!
This book gets excellent reviews on Amazon, and takes an interesting and unique approach to the wealth building book genre. I’m excited to read it. (It also won the 2014 Axiom Business Book award gold medal).
Rishi Tea in Tumeric Ginger – Value $7.50
I love tea, and this blend is unique and different to what I usually drink, so I’m happy! I don’t think the Natural Stacks mental performance capsules are for me though. There are a few too many warnings that go along with it!
Cocoon GRID-IT – Value $15
I received one of these GRID-ITs in a Lost Crates a long time ago, and they are really useful for traveling. I don’t travel enough to justify keeping it, so I’ll probably gift this.
Verdict: This box cost $100 and has a value of about $190. I think everything in the box is quality and there are no “filler” items, so I’m happy with the value. The capsules are the one thing that aren’t a fit for me, but otherwise I thought this was a very interesting and unique box. (And I love getting new books to read I wouldn’t normally come across).
