Paper & Pen January 2017

Paper & Pen is a monthly subscription box that promises to send out 3-4 paper goods and supplies each month.  They pick items from around the globe and send those unique items to you.  Boxes start at $20 a month but go down with longer plans.  Shockingly for me, shipping is free!  Let’s see what they sent out!

This is a cute to-do list notepad.  It has 50 sheets in it and is 4X5.5″.  I work in an office and everyone knows nothing happens before 1st coffee!  This will be fun to use to keep track of things I need to get done.

This is a great card!  Sometimes you just need a card that doesn’t ooze sappy but gets the message across.  I almost want to use this as a poster instead of a card, I like the statement that much.

20170130_1808582017 Coffee Spirit Animal Hanging Calendar-$14.00

This is a wood calendar.  It is very thin and flexible and made of Birch.  This is very different from anything I’ve ever had and while I don’t agree with the coffee part I think I can get over that.

I’ve been happy with this box.  There is not a tonne of stuff in it but that was made clear in their info. I was able to find pricing for two items this month and both are small businesses.  I like that some of the products are from smaller companies and Etsy companies.  It shows that they really do search out interesting items instead of just buying lots off Amazon.
