This box comes with a card detailing the items included:
Now, on to the items!
ThawTHAT! Modern Defrosting Board – Retail Value $70
This thawing tray is made with conductive aluminum and a biosafe thermal liquid – there is no electricity required. Just put frozen meat directly on to the tray for fast, even defrosting. (It should cut the thawing time for most meats in half.)
The tray itself is a sleek looking modern design with a drip tray.
And you just wash with soapy water to clean.
This gets good reviews online, and I love that it’s a kitchen tool that is so easy to use and takes up very little storage space. (You literally just put the meat directly on the surface, and flip the meat halfway through the thaw time.)
KeySmart Pro – Retail Value $60
This is amazing – definitely my favorite item in the box!
This keychain tool keeps up to 10 keys organized in a slim swiss-army like key-ring.
And you just download the Tile app so that you can always find your keys with your phone.
It comes with a bottle opener and a flashlight, too.
And you can press the tile button twice and it will make your phone ring – even if it is on silent!
(I almost always have my phone on silent and have “lost” it in my house on enough occasions that it’s now a running joke with my husband, so this feature is a serious game-changer.)
It also has a special key loop for your car key fob:
And you also get a $5 gift card to use on additional accessories:
I think I’ll need to buy another one of these – my husband Eric wants one, too!
The AirFly by TwelveSouth – Retail Value $40
Just like the keychain, this device is so smart and simple!
You can use it to pair your AirPods or any other wireless headphones with any wired headphone jack (like an in-flight entertainment system, a treadmil, etc.)
It comes with a USB charging cable, and the charge lasts for up to 8 hours.
And it comes with a pouch to keep everything together. (This is going straight to my carry-on bag!)
Nourish Nutrition Scale – Retail Value $40
Admittedly, I don’t use a scale for measuring food, but it appears that this is pretty much the best scale there is – it gets excellent reviews on Amazon.
I do love that you get all the nutritional info instantly with this scale – you just enter the specific food code to get the nutrition facts for the item you are weighing. (The food code book includes the 2,000 foods in the scale’s database, and you can add up to 99 custom entries.)
You can also save everything you weigh to get a daily total.
And to accompany this food scale, subscribers also get two digital books from Renaissance Periodization:
The books included are:
Just like the scale, I think these books are a good fit for people who follow a certain way of eating/preparing food. (The cookbook is focused on providing macro info for each meal – no pictures here!) These aren’t a good fit for my lifestyle + dietary needs, but I’m curious if you’d be happy to see these in a box. Let me know!
W&P Switch Game – Retail Value $25
The objective is simple: Be the first player to arrange four of your game pieces in a two-by-two square. But winning this clever two-person game requires both a keen memory and cunning strategy.
I welcome any activity that reminds me to get away from a screen, and this board game also brings a clean design, so I was excited to try it.
You divide the pieces between yourself and your opponent and try to get a square of 4 of your color. (But in addition to placing a piece, or moving one of the pieces that are your color, you can also flip a piece – and some have the opposite color on the back.)
I played two rounds with my husband Eric, and it’s a quick + simple game that can definitely be more challenging once we get into strategy. (I like that it isn’t too complicated to start playing quickly, though!)
Xpand Shoelaces – Retail Value $20
These are another super smart + simple invention that I’m already addicted to! (Breo Box is really great at finding a few items every season that really wow me.)
Subscribers get both a white and black set. The laces are elastic, and you just thread them how you’d thread normal laces, install the anchor tab, then cut off the excess lace:
And you can use these for any shoes – not just sneakers. I will be using the black ones in a pair of boots!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $307. I think that’s good for the $144 cost with the MSA coupon. I’m really impressed with the item selection this season – all the products get really good reviews, and a lot of them are a great fit for me. (The scale and the ebooks are the only misses for me – but that’s a personal diet thing.) I really love everything else, and there are items that I will use every single day like the keychain and the shoelaces!
