  1. Does anyone sub to Gadget Discovery Club and if so can you please tell me what you received in your last couple of boxes? Is this high tech brands or random crappy brands? Thanks

    • I don’t subscribe, but everything is designed by Gadget Discovery Club. I believe that it’s the only brand you’ll receive.

    • I went looking for reviews. All I found were reviews of the mini speaker (mostly positive), and a portable blender, Smoovii. There were a lot of comments on customer service, either 5 star or 1 star (product not received; coming from China). I’d do more research before signing up!

  2. Wow I love the Sunday idea! I probably need that too. 😔 I’m surprised I’ve never heard of it. Like curology for your lawn!

    Thank you so much for the ideas!!!

    • I had the same thought about Sunday, Jordan! Thanks for reading!
