Trendy Memo March 2018 Review
Enclosed in each box is an info card with a list of the contents of the box and on the back of the card a “top goals & priorities” checklist.
The touch wristlet that I received I didn’t find on their website, so I found a wristlet that was similar. This item was the first spoiler Trendy Memo released, and when I first saw it, I thought this is too small for most phones, but I was hoping I was wrong. This touch wristlet has two zippered compartments one on the front that’s a clear PVC pocket that I can text or email without taking my phone out and a zippered compartment that opens at the top of the wristlet with two small pockets inside to hold my I.D. or credit cards.This wristlet is cream-colored with black polka dots with a wristlet strap and an adjustable strap that can I can put on my shoulder or wear as a crossbody purse. A great concept but the wristlet needs to be bigger so it can hold my iPhone 7, most individuals phones are bigger than this wristlet, so the main usage for this item fails and I end up using it as a makeup bag and would be able only to fit a small handful of items inside.
Here’s an inside look of the wristlet. There are two small pockets inside to hold my belongings.
Here I have my old iPhone 4 or 5, not sure which version, inside the clear PVC pocket.
Leatherette Pencil Pouch – Ciao in Black and White – Retail Value $12.00 (found here for $3.00)
This black and white leatherette pencil case fits all my pens and pencils. The pencil case has a zipper closure with a leatherette tassel zipper pull. This black and white leatherette pencil case matches the November leatherette file folder. I appreciate how Trendy Memo send office supplies that coordinate.
See Jane Work Paper Clip Holder – Retail Value $9.99
This classic black metal clip holder can grip my papers at least 12 sheets, hold my business cards, or notecards. The base of the holder is magnetic that will hold my paper clips. What a clever and useful item, by far the most exciting item in this box.
The box includes 27-sheets of paper that’s laser and ink jet compatible and 18 envelopes. I love the pastel colors on the paper, and the lime green envelopes both scream Spring. Anyone that knows me knows I love to send greeting cards and handwritten notes so, this item is perfect to add to my stationary station.
Maars 12 oz Mini Skinny Tumbler in Mint – Retail Value $10.00
I have accumulated tumblers ranging in various sizes since subscribing to subscription boxes. I have kept some and gifted some; now I have another addition to add to my collection, at least the size is smaller than the ones I own. The tumbler is the right size to throw in my purse to stay hydrated and get my daily water intake while I’m on the go. I usually hate seeing tumblers in sub boxes, but I’m surprised that I like this one so much. Maybe it’s the size or the spring color; I’m vibing spring now since the weather in Cali has been warm and sunny lately. This 12oz. tumbler with matching colored straw and clear lid is 18/8 food grade stainless steel, BPA free, copper vacuum insulation to keep liquids hot and cold and it’s top rack dishwasher safe, plus do not microwave.
The Verdict: Trendy Memo has a total value of $62.99 (less with sale prices). Their monthly value fluctuates monthly some months it’s around $40-$50 and other months slightly higher. I know readers have expressed a desire for a higher value box since the average lifestyle subscription box is around $40-$45 and values at $100 so, maybe we shall see what the future holds in regards to a higher value box. This subscription box has been around for awhile and has moved from quarterly to monthly, so that says something about their subscription base, and over the months I have received this box their curation always has included and office item that was clever, new to me and useful. I especially like how their office supplies coordinate like the leatherette pencil case in this month’s box matches a product from a past box. This subscription does deliver on sending 4-6 items per month, and the products are suited for my office, they often include beauty and fashion items. Each has their unique style as to how they decide to adorn their desk, and this subscription can assist in the creative process.
