Comment:   The cups that came in the sample package were great, they didn’t feel flimsy and didn’t leak at all. I was sad that the dispensing carton didn’t come with the sample though, I feel I really missed out on the experience of using this product. I imagine stacking these cups would create a mess if someone bumped into them so having a dispensing card board box would definitely help that!

Comment:   Its a great cup to have to grab a coffee and run to a meeting

We used these for visitors and these were great.  We typically buy whatever is cheapest, but these were really nice.  While I’m sure these come in varying sizes, the size we received was perfect for a cup of coffee or tea.  The cup didn’t feel like it got quite as hot as some other brands, but we didn’t test that for any length of time.  In the future, we will be buying these for our office. Breanne E.

 

These were some nice cups/lids and they did the job perfectly…let me take my precious coffee on the go!  I like how the lids were easy to seal on to the cups.  Sometimes with disposable cups the lids don’t seem to fit securely.  That was not the case with these.  The cup design was cute too…not plain, but not over the top.  (I may or may not be known to sometimes try and match my cup to my outfit LOL) Penny Z.

 

There isn’t much to say about lids, but these were pretty nice.  We found their claim of locking tight to prevent spill to be accurate.   They fit well and they do lock on pretty tightly.  The quality is good, they are a good thickness.  They worked well for the paper cups we were given.  These will also be purchased for our office. Breanne E.

We have a lot of people who use creamer in their coffee and this went over pretty well.  People liked the taste of it better than some of the other brands we’ve tried and they liked that they came individually packaged rather than in one sharable bottle.  The majority of the people would like to try this brand in other flavors, but the vanilla was a pretty big hit with most of them.  A few people who don’t typically use creamer tried it and were surprised at how well they liked it. Breanne E.

 

I really enjoy some flavor in my coffee and this vanilla flavoring is wonderful.  It’s so convenient that it won’t spoil outside of the fridge though I would feel nervous about using these if they’d been without refrigeration after a few weeks or months.  I think the cup sizes are too small as I usually feel like two of the creamers is the best amount of creamer. Rose D.

 

I love these cups and lids….especially that the lids stay on so well. The coffee creamer I had a co-worker try and she loved it in her coffee. Kathy L.

 

I am a Coffeemate fan, and often use their creamers at home.  The Natural Bliss Vanilla was tasty.  The convenience of the small servings that did not need refrigeration was nice too.  These would be ideal to put out during meetings at the office. Penny Z.

 

Coffee-Mate vanilla Bliss coffee creamer was awesome, it makes even the worst coffee taste amazing…. Monique W.

Comment:   This snap envelope is useful if you want to keep papers together about one subject. Unfortunately it only has one pocket so it is not ideal for multi-project organization but does it’s job. I don’t really like the lime green color but that does effect it’s job of holding paper.

I found this item to be very helpful.  I like that it is large enough to hold a nice size stack of papers, which comes in handy for me as I transport files from home to office every day.  I especially like the pocket on the outside/back for quick access to pages that I need for quick reference (instead of having to open the snap and sort through the pages inside). Penny Z.

 

This envelope is sturdy, the snap works perfectly, and the additional pocket on the back is perfect for any extra documents I may collect throughout the day. I wasn’t sure if I would have a use for this but it has been something that I take with me all my meetings just to be sure I have a place to put everything. I especially like that I can see what I put inside so I always know I’m prepared. Megan G.

 

My husband loves these folders . He uses them to keep his different jobs in order. He also likes the color because it makes them easy to find. Megan C.

These things are amazing. I have put one in every notebook I own and even in my personal planner. It is absolutely perfect for all the little notes I take throughout the day! Nothing falls out of them and they are so inconspicuous – absolutely perfect. Megan G.

 

This is a clever little invention.  The suggested uses of inside file folders and binders is a great idea.  However, I actually stuck it inside my work cabinet and hold little slips of paper with passwords, receipts, etc. in it.  A nice, little hiding spot.  🙂 Penny Z

 

These are awesome. I put them in my planner to hold extra notes and business cards and they are till holding strong. I just wish they weren’t so expensive. Megan C.

 

Post-it Extreme Notes

I love the bright colors these come in.  And who doesn’t totally depend on Post it notes?? While I didn’t get the chance to use them in any “extreme” situations…I have no doubt they would deliver as promised.  Penny Z.

Comment:   Well these post it notes really do stick to surfaces for a very long time, though I am unsure why they need to be so durable and water-resistant. The packaging, featuring wood, brick, weather, and moisture make it seem like people on construction sites are labeling their materials with post it notes and up until this point, the post it notes just haven’t been doing the job. If this is the case, I’m glad there’s finally a post it note for them but for your average office worker, like myself, I’m just happy these stick onto something for more than 24 hours.

We stuck these on the outside door of our warehouse and they work great. Waterproof, 60 mile an hour winds proof and everything in between. I will say though you need a waterproof / weatherproof marker because the writing on the note fades pretty quickly, see pictures. Megan C.

Comment:   I’m not a huge fan of La Croix but I’m always interested in trying the variety of flavors. The Berry flavor is very ambiguous but strong, without knowing which berry I was tasting, I knew it was some sort of fruit. I found the carbonation very aggressive however, this matched the intensity of the flavor despite the ambiguity of the berry.

LaCroix Sparkling Water (Berry and Cran Raspberry)

 

These were refreshing and tasty. To know they have 0 calories, 0 carbs, and 0 sodium made it that much better. They give you the feeling of drinking pop without all the guilt. FANTASTIC! Megan G

 

LaCroix Cran-Raspberry and Berry

These were very tasty also.  Refreshing and the flavor with LaCroix is never too overpowering.  I wonder if LaCroix makes any drinks in bottle that have a twist cap (that you can replace between sips).  It made me a little nervous having an open can like that near my desk/computer/phone/etc.  A nice 20oz bottle with a twist cap would be ideal.  Penny Z

Kar’s Trail Mix Variety Pack

 

All 3 of these flavors were fantastic. It was nice to have a variety of flavors and ingredients. I especially enjoyed the yogurt apple mix – anything with fruit and nuts is my kind of snack. Megan G

 

Karr’s Variety Pack Trailmix

What a delicious snack!  I kept a couple of the packs in my desk drawer and they literally kept me from being “hangry” and losing my cool.  (That time between lunch and going home can be dicey sometimes.  LOL)  It was nice to have just the right amount in the pack to satisfy my hunger and not have to worry about measuring anything out.  Easy and tasty!  I also think these would make a fantastic after school snack (or lunch box item) for my kids.  I appreciate anything that is healthy and easy.  I will say, I did not eat the spicy one, but gave it to a co-worker.  I’m a big wimp when it comes to anything spicy.  🙂 Penny Z

Kars Snack were great, I shared them with me team and we are going to purchase these right away. Monique W

Air Wick V.I. Poo Pre-Poo Toilet Spray

This stuff is so cool!  And it really works!  I think any business that has a shared bathroom (between coworkers) should have a bottle of this discreetly placed on the back of the toilet.  It could save some people embarrassment…and save others the displeasure of an offensive odor.  Penny Z

Air Wick V.I. Poo Pre-Poo Toilet Spray-This is a really interesting idea and although not many like to admit, a much needed one!  After leaving it in the office bathroom, I received mixed reviews.  Some people forgot to spray before using the toilet and others found the spray useful and funny.  I thought the scent was a little too chemical smelling for my taste but maybe the other scents would be more pleasant. Rose D.

When I first got this to trial I honestly just started laughing and though tot myself, “ who in the world would make this stuff and use it?” Little did I know that it would seriously work!!!!! I used it as an air freshener initially and love the scent of lemon, so it was great to randomly spray. I then told my husband about it, who was the one to actually use it for its purpose and he was amazed that it worked. The smell was for sure trapped and refreshing. I was so excited to see a product work like that and look forward to buying it. Intissar S.

 

Purell Hand Sanitizing Wipes

These come in really handy, especially in the car.  Sometimes just plain hand sanitizer doesn’t cut it…it’s good to get the germs off your hands, but not actual dirt.  That’s where these wipes work really well…they not only get rid of germs, they also get rid of dirt and mess.  This is definitely nice when you have kids!  And I appreciated that the scent was not overpowering.  Keeping a canister of these around is a good idea.

The purell wipes were in a great sized container. It was so handy to have them on hand in my car with two little kids. I used them to disinfect and also clean up messes. They even fit in my purse at one point when I ran into Target with my daughter while she was eating and I had to put her in the cart! I think having these makes things easier, and would recommend for anyone to buy them just to have on their desk, in car, and while traveling. I would prefer wipes over the liquid anyday! Intissar S.
