Trendy Memo November 2018 Review
Enclosed is the monthly info card with the box contents and their description with Trendy Memo’s hashtags and website address and on the back of the info card is “My Monthly Memo” a to-do list, and top goals & priorities checklist.
Yellow Jumbo Mobile Memos – Retail Value $6.00
When I opened the box and saw this item, it brought me back to my childhood. My mother would write me notes on a sticky pad and stick them to my bathroom mirror for me to read when I woke up each morning. This jumbo memo pad with adhesive backing would have been perfect for her, as she would have more room to write. The neon yellow jumbo pad has 100 sheets, and measures at 8 ½” x 8 ½”. I adhered the jumbo sticky sheet to my closet door, and after a couple of days the sheet fell off; the surface may have been dirty and wouldn't allow the sticky note to stay on. Will try other areas and make sure the surface is clean. Let me know if you had any problems with this product.
Dark Gray Medium Slim Tray – Retail Value $8.00
This dark gray slim tray measures at 9 ¾” x 6 ¾” x ½” and a perfect-fit lid for the medium accessory tray. This slim tray can be an option for my desk accessories or miscellaneous items on my nightstand. I appreciate how this sub sends desk accessories that can be versatile in their use.
Black & White Leatherette Clip Board – Retail Value $15.00
This 9 ½” x 12” block style black and white leatherette clipboard with a small gold clip will hold a stack of papers. It’s sturdy and stylish. Even though the clip is smaller than previous clipboards I own, my papers stayed in place. Also, this pairs with the black and white leatherette file folder from my November 2017 box.
Cool Tones Brushstroke Portfolio – Retail Value $7.99
This 9” x 12 ½” faux leather teal colored portfolio has colored brush strokes on the inside, has a tie closure, and holds my 8 ½ x 11 papers. It’s lightweight and sturdy.
This zip folio comes in a set of three on their website, but I received one neon pink portfolio with a slide tab that’s wear, and water resistant.
Here I put in a few desk accessories in the zip portfolio; this pouch is large enough for desk accessories, makeup, or any miscellaneous items. The zip portfolio is opaque (shown above with my items enclosed) on one side and the other side of the zip portfolio it's clear.
I received a set of nine file folders in three different colors with floral patterns with gold foil on the front and back. The file folders came with ten adhesive labels. The weight of the file folders is good quality paper. The folders along with the majority of products from this box are produced in China. Overall, this product, as well as the others from this box, are constructed well, colorful, useful and purposeful for my office or home, and pairs well with desk/office accessories I own.
The Verdict: Trendy Memo has a boxed value of $48.99. Their monthly value fluctuates monthly, but typically around $40-$50+. So, keep that in mind if you decide to subscribe. This month’s box was all about filing and storing papers which can pile up, so having a system in place with the right tools is helpful. What I especially liked was the jumbo sticky memo pad that brought me back to my childhood. I will use the majority of the items and may pass on the file folders to a friend. This subscription does deliver on sending 5-6 items per month, and the products are suited for my office, they often include beauty, fashion and lifestyle items. Each has their unique style as to how they decide to adorn their desk, and this subscription can assist in the creative process.
