Culture Carton is the subscription box for the man that wants to be THE MAN that impacts the world and not an everyday man. A book that belongs in every man’s library and carefully selected lifestyle items are included in the box. Become a cultured man and know that knowledge is power, dress for success, and always be a gentleman.
Culture Carton’s slogan is a good model to live by!
This is a very compelling case for Apollo being the god of culture!
The illustrated information card tells you what’s in the box, providing a value for each item. The theme for tax month is getting our finances in order.
Everything in the April Culture Carton.
La Colombe Draft Latte ($4 on card, $3 online): This cold brewed espresso takes the clean flavor of cold brew coffee and adds milk, natural flavors, chicory for complexity, salt, sugar, and acacia gum, to create a thick, frothy latte texture out of a can.
This is a first for me – the cold brew coffee phenomena has now been joined with a specialty delivery mechanism. The specially shaped top regulates the flow of sipped coffee, creating a frothy texture.
Book Darts ($3): These lovely copper-colored darts increase your engagement while reading, save your place, and let you mark portions of interest for yourself and others who may pick up the book. The dozen, librarian-approved thin metal darts slip easily onto the edge of the page, removing the need to damage your books with dog-ears, highlighting, or underlining.
Modern Made Man Successor Wallet ($52): Symbolically, what item could be better to include in a finance themed box than a wallet? Made of genuine leather wallet with simple and elegant styling, this wallet is compact and suitable for front or back pocket wear. The tuck closure strap is stamped with the Modern Made Man monogram.
The sewn leather wallet has a dark-tanned leather with a reddish patina appearing at the stress points.
The unlined interior has the soft feel of the unpolished side of leather. The folded construction creates two tiered pockets to hold your money and cards.
I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi ($14 on card, $6.99 on Amazon): The New York Times Bestseller presents a simple, straightforward approach to getting your personal finances in order over a six-week span.
Each week of the program focuses on a different aspect of personal finance. First, you are guided through the process of properly managing your credit cards to avoid throwing money away on servicing revolving debt. You then are instructed on opening savings and investment accounts, budgeting, automating your finances, and making your money work for you.
The books focus is enabling you to make mature financial decisions to get your financial life in order.
The book has an irreverent bent and makes light reading for a book on finances. The book’s attitudes, cultural references, and areas of focus are clearly geared toward recent graduates and other young adults.
This is fun subscription for self-improvers. Instead of focusing on product samples and just physical fitness, Culture Carton refreshingly addresses those areas of life often overlooked in the subscription box world — finances, cultural refinement, and intellect. It has a manageable number of high-quality items, and the value is very good – this month had about $65 of value ($73 by the card) in a $40 subscription.
