Ideas in Motion Portable Folding Serving Table – Retail Value $14.99

Although this item isn’t very sturdy, I love the concept of a breakfast in bed table and didn’t own one, so I’ll be holding onto it for special occasions that warrant such treatment. When opened, it measures 19 ½” x 11 ½” with legs approximately 8” high. This table folds easily and collapses down for easy storage (taking the height to around 2”).

The top features 5 compartments, including 2 round ones perfect for your beverages.

The legs did keep popping out when I collapsed it, but easily snapped back in and it seemed plenty sturdy to hold food when it was locked into place.

Magic Zing Ring – Retail Value $4.99

I was recently at a few Phish shows and saw these everywhere! This is the new “fidget spinner” – a stainless steel ring that spins around most objects. It is made from 1 continuous piece of steel and folds flat. My husband was more excited to see this than my 3-year-old son and we had fun playing with it. It was a fun and surprising item to receive.

This LED task light features a 2.5 hour run time, comes with both an AC charger and a car charger, and a 360-degree swivel fold-out hook. This is the perfect addition to your tool chest or emergency supply kit! It measures 11″x1″x1″ and puts off quite a bit of light! I love the hook feature, perfect for home use (like when you need to paint the inside of a closet!

Meridian Point Single Compartment Lunch Container (20 piece set)– Estimated Value $17.95 (based on a similar item found here)

This was a weird one for me, although I will use them. These are basically just take-out containers – 10 lids and 10 bases, single compartment. With a kid in daycare, I can definitely put those to good use – but it does kind of make the whole box feel a little like someone was just cleaning out their drawer and threw these in?

The Verdict: It’s easy to be satisfied with this box because there is no implied expectation of items or value. They make no promises – so as long as the items exceed the price I pay, and are something that I’ll use I think it’s decent. It does feel a bit like a yard sale in a box, but the light alone was double the price of the box, so the rest feels like gravy.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? There’s no telling which random items you’ll get inside this box, even if you sign up today. Subscribe now to get your own box of surprises!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $24.99 + free shipping and I received 5 items, making each one break down to about $5.

  1. I have a couple of those lunch containers and I just rewash them. They honestly work just as good as any other plastic lunch containers on the market.

  2. A Phish🐥!

  3. This box is on my radar now. I would love some comments from people who have subscribed.
