Measure-It 32′ Sticky Measuring Tape – Value $6.51
This product is kind of like a measuring tape mixed with painters tape. It has a gentle adhesive on the back that lets it stick to whatever you’re trying to measure. The package has photos of people using this along the length of beams, or to line up framed paintings on a gallery wall. This sticky tape takes away the need to mark up walls or worry about your measuring tape wriggling out of alignment as you go. I don’t have any immediate need for this little tool, but I’d bet it’ll come in handy some day. Into the toolkit, it goes!
Cobble Creek Magic Top Bottle Pourer – Value $5.89?
I couldn’t find this exact product online, but I found something extremely similar on Amazon, which I linked to above for value. This is such a clever little tool that makes any bottle into a soda-fountain-worthy dispenser. Just press your cup against the blue tap to dispense the drink inside the bottle. This could come in handy if you’re not a fan of hoisting a big heavy jug of milk or O.J. out of the fridge to pour a glass.
Retro Travel Kit – Value $12.00?
I’m not sure what the source or brand of this kit is, so I just took a guess at the value. This little canvas bag has a retro pattern down the center and inside, plus a matching zipper pull. Inside, there are a ton of handy travel toiletries, including…
…socks and an eye mask…
… a handy pen…
… a pack of tissues…
… a towelette and lip balm…
… and a toothbrush and toothpaste. This is a useful little kit, since I always think I’ll remember these kinds of things on trips and… well… never do. So I’ll be using this on my next trip for sure!
Verdict: This month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome was filled with some pretty helpful items. I’m always surprised how strange-yet-useful everything in these mystery boxes ends up being. I’m especially happy with the travel kit. It’s just what I need before my August road trips! I estimated that there was about $24.00 of value in this box, which is actually quite a good deal considering it only costs $9.99.
