The Handy Box is a newer subscription box that is great for DIYers, first-time home owners, and others who want a monthly box of handy tools and gadgets. The May 2014 The Handy Box is their second box and we were excited to see what was in this month’s box.
The first thing we noticed was that this month’s box was both heavy and STUFFED. After opening the box, we saw why. Right on top was a wireless security system.
After removing the security system, we found the product information card that detailed the products that were in the May The Handy Box.
