Just this week I received my first Quarterly Co shipment. Quarterly is a great startup that will send you physical items from people that you subscribe to. I’m sure you’ve heard of some of these services that send you a box per month of stuff. Quarterly is sort of like that but you get a box each quarter from a contributor that you subscribe to. It is basically like getting a box of cool stuff from someone you follow and are interested in. Some contributors include Veronica Belmont, Tim Ferriss, Chris Guillebeau and Pharrell Williams.
Each contributors cost is different, but they range from $25 to $100. Being a fan of Tim Ferriss I subscribed to him for $100 and just this week I received #TIM02, which was Tim’s second Quarterly shipment.
And here is what it included:
Edible Green Tea Powdered – $25
LSTN In-Ear Headphones – $50
Alpha Brain – $34.95
AMRAP Nutrition Bars – $23.95
Mini Work Tool – $9.95
Creative Whack Pack – $16
Spectacle (Book) – $33.80
Donors Choose Gift Card – $20
Total value: $213.65
Not bad getting all of that for $100! Here is Tim explaining each of the products in the box.
I think this service is great. I read Tim’s blog and I have his books so getting a box of goodies that he uses or is interested in is very cool. Even though you don’t know what’s in the box before you get it there is a good chance you are going to be interested in it since you decided to subscribe to that person. Also there is the excitement of getting the package as you don’t know what you are getting.
If you are interested in Quarterly check out their list of contributors and see if there is someone you are interested in. I’m really excited for the next Tim Ferriss shipment!
