I talked about subscribing to the Quarterly package a while ago and have finally received it! I’m not sure how it compares to the first package because I didn’t subscribe in time to receive it but I always admire Timothy Ferris’ obsessions (the theme of his packages).
Here is what I received and if you’re interested in seeing why these items were chosen:
The letter from Tim Ferris:
A 9-in-1 work tool (credit card sized so you can carry it around in your wallet or purse)
A $20 gift card that can be redeemed (I’ve already redeemed it!)
LSTN earbuds made out of wood (I already have a set of earbuds but I don’t think you can ever have too many lying around)
and the cards inside:
A pack of paleo AMRAP protein bars:
Dried green tea leaves (very cool way of getting anti-oxidants)
Spectacle book (a great way of expanding the mind by visiting different events, cities, countries)
Brain supplements (no idea if these work but excited to give it a try)
and a 40% coupon code for future orders of dried green tea leaves as well (not pictured). I was charged about $10 for shipping but Tim assures everyone that we’re getting more than $200 in value in the package so that’s not something I”m too worried about (shipping is free in the US). The question is whether or not I should continue subscribing to these packages and I think they’re definitely a great way of getting some things that I normally wouldn’t get / buy / be aware of.
Looking forward to the next one!
