Trendy Memo January 2019 Review
Enclosed is the monthly info card with the box contents and their description.
Blush Suede Hardbound Agenda – Retail Value $19.99
This suede blush colored agenda is hardcover, covers from January 2019 - December 2019, with an elastic band to hold the agenda closed. The dimensions are 6.75"x 8.5". Last year’s box had a mini desk calendar that I loved and I was hoping there would be one in this month’s box, but no such luck. The agenda covers a lot and plenty of room to take notes and write down my daily activities on the weekly grid. I tend to use agenda’s such as these on a daily basis and was happy to receive, unfortunately, I received an agenda in another subscription box and started using it, so I will gift this to my friend.
This page is a monthly overview of 2019 and 2020.
This page displays all the “holidays” and “happy days” in 2019.
This section starts with August 2018 through December 2019 and space to write adventures or celebrations from the year.
This inspirational divider states the month, the left page says, “LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN!” and on the right page, it says, “January”, each month has a page like this with a different quote
A section titled “notes” and on the following page titled sections are “do” and “shop”. I can write in my to-do’s, my shopping list, and notes for the month.
Here’s the January monthly grid.
Here’s the weekly grid with a space that says, “CAN’T FORGET”.
This divider of the agenda starts the back portion of my datebook and it says on one side, “IF NOT NOW…THEN WHEN?” and on the other side “LET’S DO THIS 2020”.
A section for taking notes.
A section to track and budget my money for the year.
A section for keeping track of my contacts.
And lastly, a page dedicated to units and conversions.
Poppin 4 Cable Catchers – Retail Value $ 8.00
I received a set of four cable catchers with a peel and stick backing in white, teal, grey, and pink. The cable catchers will hold small and medium cables. The product dimensions are 1.25" x 0.5". I must admit when I opened the box and saw the package I wasn’t sure what the item was or the purpose. My cables fit securely into the slit but I’m not sure where this will be positioned; I don’t have a problem with cables needing a home. I may play around with these a see what I come up with. I peel the backing and adhere to a clean smooth surface, other users complained of the backing not sticking and adhering to the surface for a long period of time. Hopefully, that won’t be the case.
Poppin Assorted Slim Permanent Markers -Set of 8 – Retail Value $10.00
What a surprise I haven’t received markers from Trendy Memo in awhile and I was in need. I received 8 slim permanent markers in black, red, pool blue, lime green, purple, pink, orange, and aqua. A nice assortment of colors and the slim bullet tip makes writing a breeze and the markers didn’t bleed through the paper or stain my hands.
Here’s a close-up of the tip of the permanent marker. “The slim bullet tip lets me put a fine point on things”.
Here’s a sample of the colors and the writing style.
Cork Coasters – Retail Value $6.00
The cork coasters I received were slightly different from the ones on the website. I received 4 cork coasters with the following sayings on each of them, “Grace”, “But First, Coffee”, “Love”, and “But First Coffee”, again. I use an assortment of coasters on my desk and change them up to fit my mood, so these will come in handy. “A portion of all proceeds will be donated to build wells in Uganda”, taken from the tag on coasters.
Set of 50 Large Paper Clips + Gold Mini Holder – Estimated Value $15.00
I have come to love using paperclips, thanks to this subscription. I received 50 large paperclips with a mini gold holder. I appreciate the holder coming with the paperclips. I have a few small paperclips on my desk on the paperclip holder that was from the March box. These will work better for my stacks of papers and miscellaneous items.
The Verdict: Trendy Memo has a boxed value of $58.99. Their monthly value fluctuates monthly for some months it's around $40-$50+. So, keep that in mind if you decide to subscribe. A great start to the year with an agenda to keep track of “2019” events and desk staples to make my workspace more efficient. I love this sub but would like to see a higher box value since the cost of the sub with shipping is $40.98. The box delivers on sending me clever, efficient products for my at home workspace, but I would like to see more. Such as a bigger ticket item like a hand shredder, staple free staple, divider sticky notes, desktop letter and file organizer, drawer organizer, mouse pad with wrist support or paperweight. This subscription does deliver on sending 5-6 items per month, and the products are suited to 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.
