Trendy Memo March 2019 Review
Ashley, the Trendy Memo founder, recently sent an email to subscribers explaining:
We will not be including insert cards in the boxes moving forward. This decision will allow us to save paper as well as to better customize your box based on when you sign up. We want to make sure you have all the office supplies to help you Work Pretty! Note, all boxes will continue to have 5 items in each box.
See Jane Work – Reveal Document Holder – Retail Value $10.00
This is handy to have so I can store my important documents, files, valuable papers in plain view. This clear plastic, PVC-coated cotton for sturdiness holder has a magnetic closure and measures at 12.25 x 8.5”.
Large Cork/Fabric Pouch
This 11 x 8.5” pouch has aqua-colored fabric on the top and the bottom has a cork-like material. The pouch is roomy and can store my iPhone, cosmetics bag, change purse, notepad, and pens. I could store my miscellaneous items and coin purse and add to my tote bag to organize the inside. Unfortunately, there was no manufacturer information for this item so I was unable to find a price value online.
Poppin- Weekly Sticky Pad – Retail Value $6
I love sticky notes and I have a variety of sticky pads, but I don’t have this style. I received an aqua and white weekly sticky pad starting with Mon-Sun. The pad has 100 sheets with an adhesive backing and measures at 10″W x 2.5″H. The weekly sticky pad held its adhesiveness to my wall and didn’t fall off. Now I can adhere to any surface in my apartment so I can keep track of my weekly schedule.
I write letters and send cards monthly to my pen-pals, friends, and for The Letter Project so I was excited to receive a postcard with a similar color design on the envelope. The back of the postcard has “thanks’ inscribed in gold on top of the card and the front of the card has a similar color design as the flap of the envelope. I was unable to find this card on the Graphique website.
Lady Jayne Card and Envelope – Estimated Value $4.95
I love the design on the front of the card and the kiss mark on the flap of the envelope. The card is blank inside and has colorful lipsticks, a kiss mark, and “you’re the best” printed on the front in gold. This could easily be framed or sent to my friend. I was unable to find this card on the Lady Jayne website, so the estimate is based on similar cards.
Splendid Pen – Fountain Pen – Retail Value $4.99
The splendid pen comes with 3 blue ink cartridges and a rubber grip for comfortable writing. This pen is smooth, has an intense color, and the ink doesn’t bleed onto the paper. The ink cartridge was easy to assemble, as the instruction video and care instructions were straightforward. This particular style of pen and writing tip is new to me and I love it.
Here is a close-up of the tip of the pen and a writing sample of the blue ink.
The Verdict: I received six items this month but could only estimate a total value of $25.94 for a four of them. Normally their monthly value fluctuates; for some months it’s around $40-$50+. So, keep that in mind if you decide to subscribe. This month’s box has some new office accessories, such as the weekly sticky pad and the reveal document holder, both items that will be a welcome addition to my home office. It was a pleasant change to have a greeting card and postcard included, it’s wise to have on hand for those unexpected moments where a follow-up or thank you note is needed. The “you’re the best” card may be too informal for a business correspondence but for my personal use it’s perfect.
I appreciate Trendy Memo saving paper but I prefer an insert card to ensure I have the correct items and the manufacturer information. This will be an adjustment. This subscription does deliver on sending 4-6 items per month, and the products are suited for my office, they often include beauty, fashion and lifestyle items. Each individual has their own unique style as to how they decide to adorn their desk, and this subscription can assist in the creative process.
