Trendy Memo November 2018 - Yellow Jumbo Mobile Memos Top Trendy Memo November 2018 - Yellow Jumbo Pad Sticky Side to Wall Front

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.

Trendy Memo November 2018 - Dark Gray Medium Slim Tray Top

Trendy Memo November 2018 - Box Contents Top

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.

Trendy Memo November 2018 - Black & White Leatherette Clip Board with Card attached Top

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.

Trendy Memo November 2018 - Cool Tones Brushstroke Portfolio Top Trendy Memo November 2018 - Cool Tones Brushstroke Portfolio Opened Top

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.

Trendy Memo November 2018 - Neon Pink Large Zip Folio Top

Neon Pink Large Zip Folio – Estimated Value $2.00 (set of 3 found here for $6.00)

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.

Trendy Memo November 2018 - Neon Pink Large Product Inside Zip Folio Top

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.

Trendy Memo November 2018 - File Folders Sleek and Chic Top

File Folders Sleek and Chic – Retail Value $10.00 (Found here for $2.50)

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.

The Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the December box. From Trendy Memo:

Monthly boxes ship between the 1st and 7th of the month.

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $34.99 + $5.99 shipping, but I estimate that I received $48.99 in value. That means I spent approximately the following on each item:

  • Jumbo Mobile Memo: $5.01    
  • Medium Slim Tray: $6.69
  • Leatherette Clipboard: $12.55
  • Portfolio: $6.68
  • Zip Folio: $1.67   
  • Set of 9 File Folders: $8.36

I like that this month’s box focused on “office” rather than “office and lifestyle.”
Great review!
