CatLadyBox September 2019 Review
CatLadyBox is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for September:
I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. And the back has more information about the items in the box. This month’s theme is back to school.
There was also a spoiler for next month’s box, which is the annual black cat-themed box. Madison approves!
Crunchy Catnip Apple Toy – Listed Value $5.99
This is a cute little toy (it has a smiley face on the other side, which you can see in some of the kitty photos below) that is good for tossing around. Madison seemed particularly interested (but, sadly, also camera-shy).
Catnip Ruler Toy – Listed Value $5.99
This has a slightly fuzzy texture and is crinkly and Angus thought it was awesome. It is really not heavy at all and cats can move it around pretty well all on their own.
Cat Binder Clip Set – Listed Value $7.99
This month had a back-to-school theme but for cat ladies, office supplies work just as well (I am certainly done with school after two bachelor’s degrees and a PhD). I might take these in to my office where I have a lot of uses for them, but I don’t want them to get mixed in with the general office supplies, I need to keep them for myself!
Cat Memo Notepads – Listed Value $6.99
I am constantly writing little notes to myself in the office (keeping to-do lists, keeping track of time spent on projects, etc.) so these will come in handy there. (Maybe there’s not as much room to write on as with a regular Post-It but they’re also cuter.)
Light Up Cat Pen – Listed Value $4.99
You click the little kitty on top down and it lights up. Since this is a gel pen, you don’t need the cat lit up to write – the light is more just for fun. It does write pretty smoothly, though.
Black Cat Scissors – Listed Value $8.99
This is the house of scissors. Like, not just one pair per room but 3-4 pairs in most rooms. I can always use more scissors, and I have preferred pairs for specific tasks. These are not super pointy on the ends, but they do cut well. And the holder has a magnet on the back so you can keep track of them – mine are currently on my refrigerator.
“I Speak Fluent Cat” Shirt – Listed Value $22.99
If I actually spoke cat, I could’ve told Monkey to get off the shirt for pictures. Oh well. This is a cute shirt and I’ve already worn it (and no, you don’t get to see my face and hair in the picture, sorry, but I was just about to go to the salon to get my roots touched up and I wasn’t wearing any makeup either).
Here are some cat photos for you:
Angus had a lot of fun with the ruler, both on his own and as an interactive toy with me holding it.
Madison inspects the apple.
Monkey rubs his face on the apple.
Sneaky will sniff anything looking for food!
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $63.93 for the September 2019 (Crazy) CatLadyBox. I found the lifestyle items practical again this month (I always need office supplies) and I kind of like that CatLadyBox mixed it up and provided more items than usual, since some of the items were of lower value. I don’t think it’s necessary for a subscription box to always adhere to a rigid “number of items” rule but that it’s OK to branch out now and again and do something different.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with October’s box, but way back when I signed up, I was contacted to say there were a few of the current month’s box left over and asked if I’d like one of those. So it may be worth inquiring.
Value Breakdown: At a price of $39.99 for this box, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Apple toy $3.75
- Ruler toy $3.75
- Binder clips $5
- Notepads $4.37
- Pen $3.12
- Scissors $5.62
- Shirt $14.38
