This is the only information or paper of any kind that was in the box. The mystery deepens!
Home Basics Magnetic Spice Rack – Value $13.99
Wow, I totally wanted one of these! Cool!
iit Swivel-Mount Socket – Value $14.69
It’s hard to get too excited about electrical sockets, but this is one of those things I’ll be really glad we have some day. Note that the value and link are for a very similar product – I couldn’t find this one online anywhere!
Colgate MaxFresh Toothbrush – Value $1.87 each
This is another item that’s hard to get excited about, but I guess we always need new toothbrushes.
Wireless Gear Stylus & Pen in 1 – Value $5
The link goes to where you can buy it online at full retail value ($7.99), but I’m using the price on the Big Lots Sticker. The best thing about this item is that the front of the package says, “Lightweight let’s you write or draw longer”. Because regular pens totally wear me out!
Home Solutions 5 Piece Stainless Steel Bowl Set – Value $9.94
I was, however, excited to see this in the box! We are constantly losing lids in my house, so we can never seem to have enough food storage. I also love that the bowls are stainless steel, both for durability and health reasons.
The Can Top 2 Pack – Value $3?
I feel like we have little use for these, but I guess I’ll put them in the car for when the boys have canned drinks they don’t finish. Maybe we can seal and save them this way?
LED Decorative Tealight 2 Pack – Value $1
If you read my kid box reviews, you may know that the kids and I craft something that uses one of these little lights all the time, so these will totally come in handy when we lose one!
Swiss Pocket Knife – Value $3.99
My husband loves these things, so he was happy to receive this! It feels heavy and looks like it can do pretty much anything!
Silicone Tea Infuser – Value $3.99
I actually do need another tea infuser, so this was great to find in this box.
Banana Slicer – Value $3
After an exhausting day of writing with my heavy pen, I can’t fathom having to slice a banana, nature’s softest food. This item is cracking me up! The slicing elements are not even thin enough to slice – I think they would mush the banana and then force it back into shape. Wow. I’m just going to leave this.
Verdict: Well, it certainly wasn’t a dull package, and yes, it was chock full of surprises! Even though I was only really excited about two or three items, we will probably end up using most everything (not the banana slicer). The value of the contents totals about $61, which is of course wonderful for a $25 box. I think all in all it was a fun gamble.
