Joy Mangano JOY Water Filter Set with Case and Bottle – Value $17.99 on Amazon
This is a handy item! This water filtration set comes with a filter-outfitted funnel, a case to keep it in, and a little water bottle to fill up. I bet it’d be super helpful for camping or when you’re out on a long hike and need to refill your water.
There are two filters included in the package. It’s handy to have a replacement.
Work Gloves – Value $5.00?
I couldn’t find this particular item online, but I’d be surprised if they were worth more than $5.00. These work gloves are only about as thick as the inexpensive knit winter gloves you can pick up at the store for a few dollars. They don’t seem like they’d be that great for hefty jobs, but they might protect my hands a bit when I’m raking this fall. They’re a little big on me, but my hands are pretty small. I bet they’d fit a smaller man’s hand alright.
Banana Boat Sunscreen Lip Balm in SPF 45 – Value $2.72
The final item in the box is this little lip balm. Sure, the summer’s over, but making the most of fall means being outside in plenty of autumn sunshine. I’m so-so about the strong tropical smell of this balm, but I did find it soothing.
The Verdict: This box is always full of shockingly useful products! The quality isn’t top notch, but it’s sturdy enough for some light use (for instance, that filter system will be perfect for the light amount of hardcore hiking I do in a year). And being that the filter system cost more than the total cost of the box itself, I feel like I’m getting a pretty decent value for my money. You definitely have to be willing to take a risk with this box, as it might send you something you won’t use or maybe something you have already. But if you like those kinds of handy odds and ends that you might not use every day but that really come in handy when you need ’em, then this box might be a chance worth taking!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can always sign up, but what you’ll get in your box is totally random!
Value Breakdown: This box cost $9.99, but I estimate that it had $25.71 of value inside. That means it saved me 61% and that I paid approximately the following for each item:
- Water filter set – $6.99
- Work Gloves – $1.94
- Lip balm – $1.06
