Smartass & Sass Review March 2024

Kate Kemp
ByKate KempMay 10, 2024 | 0 comments

Smartass & Sass is a monthly subscription for sassy ladies. There are 2 plans available:

Box Only is $49.95, the Big Box Subscription (which includes the shirt and box) is $69.95. Shipping is included for both boxes.

Each box contains full size beauty and lifestyle items from Smartass & Sass and various other sassy businesses. The shirts are comfy unisex T's available in sizes XS-4X.

This box was paid for by Smartass & Sass. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions

Warning: This review is not for the faint of heart! If you’re offended by bad language, this probably isn’t the review or box for you! If you’re like me and thrive on poor language and bad ideas, this is definitely a subscription box you need in your life! Consider yourself warned!

March's theme was: “Take Out The Trash!” It was an ode to (sassy) spring cleaning!

Let The Cleaning Begin!

Only The Essentials Canvas Tote - Retail Value $19.95

Smartass & Sass has sent a variety of totes in the past, but this one is meant for carrying groceries. And it’s well designed for that. The fabric and handles are super sturdy and the bottom enables it to sit flat in a shopping cart or on the counter. I love the addition of a button with a loop to secure the top. It holds a lot of groceries and it’s already in my vehicle, waiting for the next trip to the grocery store.

Panic Cleaning Reusable Paper Towels (Set Of 10) - Retail Value $19.95

Personally, I go through a lot of paper towels, so having reusable ones on hand is a great thing. These cloth towels are really soft but really strong. The edges are stitched so they won’t fray and the cardboard tube in the center is stronger than a normal one, so it will hold up to the towels being reloaded onto it, over and over. They also stack neatly and fit nicely into a kitchen drawer. The material is really absorbent and dries pretty quickly, too. Plus, they each have a funny saying on them that somehow makes cleaning less like cleaning!

Hella Clean / Dirty AF Magnet - Retail Value $15.95

This magnet is meant to go on your dishwasher. You turn it to “Dirty AF” before washing and “Hella Clean” when the dishes are done! I’ve seen this type of dishwasher magnets before, but never one with sass! If you’ve been a subscriber to Smartass & Sass for a while, your kitchen is probably looking very snarky, which, in my opinion, is a very good thing! 

Note: not all dishwashers will hold a magnet. If yours doesn’t, and you want to enjoy this sassy and useful tool, apply a magnet with a sticky back to your dishwasher in the location you want this magnet to be. That will give you a magnetic surface to adhere this fun gadget to.

“Unf*ck Your Brain” Book - Dr. Faith G. Harper - Retail Value $14.95

Spring cleaning doesn’t just have to apply to your house. Perhaps it’s time to clean up your brain a little, too. Not the sassy part, though, that’s the best part! If you’re anything like me, self-help books aren’t your go-to page turners. But this one is actually really fun. The language isn’t formal and dry. It wasn’t written by an uptight doctor in a suit, for an equally uptight patient. This one will meet you on your (sassy) level. Which means you’ll actually enjoy reading it. And before you know it, you’ll, “Unf*ck Your Brain!” 

“B*tch Be Gone” Spray Bottle - Retail Value $12.95

This spray bottle was included in a box several years ago, so if you’re a longtime subscriber, you probably already have one. However, that’s not a bad thing, this spray bottle is really well made and quite useful. It’s made of heavy duty glass with a silicone bottom that protects it from damage. The silicone liner says, “B*tch Be Gone” so it’ll fit right into your snarky kitchen or bathroom. I’m using my first one for a cleaning spray, but I think this one might actually be used for spritzing water onto my cats when they try to make a run for the door! Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to label them so I don’t wind up sanitizing my cat!

“Don’t You F*cking Dare” Reusable Snack Bags (Set Of 4) - Retail Value $19.95

I love these reusable snack bags! They’re made from a surprisingly sturdy silicone material so they hold up to repeated use and washing. But, to be honest, the best part is giggling at the sassy phrases printed on them! “I already licked this,” Don’t you f*cking dare,” “I’ve slapped a b*tch for less,” and “It’s the hint of arsenic that gives it that extra kick!” I love them just for the sayings. The fact that they’re super useful is just a bonus. And because they’re silicone, they’re oven, freezer, dishwasher and microwave safe! I’m sure I’m going to get so much use out of these things. I never thought I’d be excited about snack bags!

“I Only Want Bread” - Collectible Sassy Sticky Notes - Retail Value $4.95

The third in a set of twelve mini sticky notepad sets is a grocery list. January’s was a hydration tracker and February’s was a sleep tracker. I love, love, love grocery notepads. I even bought extra of the large ones from a previous Smartass box. But a small notepad is just as wonderful because I can write just the necessities for a quick trip and stick it to the back of my phone for easy access. I can’t wait to see what April’s notepad of the month will be!

Stay Trashy - Unisex T-Shirt - Retail Value $24.95

March’s shirt was adorable! I think racoons are so cute and I’ve often heard of them referred to as “trash pandas.” So this shirt is a fun way to express this month’s theme: “Take Out The Trash!”

Though I love the shirts that Smartass & Sass sends out, I’m not a T-shirt person, so my niece, Elizabeth, acts as my model. She says that the shirts are true to size, long enough to wear with yoga pants and ridiculously soft! She now looks forward to her monthly sassy shirt!

The Verdict

March’s theme, “Take Out The Trash,” was a really fun way to tackle spring cleaning! March’s box was full of incredibly useful items. Each one provided a fun way to clean up my life. I’m actually struggling to pick a favorite. The reusable paper towels are so soft, well-made, useful and fun. The canvas grocery tote is roomy, strong and already in regular use at my house. And the reusable silicone snack bags are so convenient and multi-purpose that they’re a hit with my family. Every item fits the theme and everything is high quality and something that I’m going to use. Smartass & Sass’s March box was a total home run for me!

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today?

No, your first box will be the May box. However, you have the option to buy the March “Take Out The Trash” Box as well as previous boxes from the Smartass store. April’s box hasn’t shipped yet, but I’m sure it’ll be available in the Smartass store as well.

Value Breakdown: The March Big Box (including T-shirt) cost $69.95 which means each of the 8 items (counting the T-shirt) cost an average of about $8.74. That’s a great value!

I’d like to add that there is a Smartass & Sass online shop that contains items found, and not found, in the box. It’s open to everyone, but subscribers that enter the password on the back of the box insert will receive 20% off of their order!

Smartass & Sass has implemented a few changes. They’ve removed the ability to customize Big Box subscriptions but the value will increase from $125 to $150. The Small Box and Shirt Only subscriptions have been discontinued. You’ll be able to purchase the shirt of the month in the Smartass & Sass store.  Subscriptions bill on the 1st and (are supposed to) ship on the 18th. Smartass is currently running behind (as am I!) but they hope to get their shipments back on track as soon as possible.
