I’m definitely showing my age with this one. “I’m impressed!” point to anyone who recognizes the phrase.
When commenting on one of Lori’s posts recently, I was reminded of a website that could be useful.
Minimus.biz is a site that specializes in individual, travel- or trial-sized products. They have everything from personal care products to household items to, yes, FOOD items. These can be especially helpful for a) portion control, b) testing new-to-us-products, or c) a and b.
I hadn’t visited the site in a while, but a quick run-through the other day showed they’ve significantly improved their offerings since the last time I dropped in. Quite a few products are ones I’ve seen in my local Kroger, but I’ve been hesitant to buy because I wasn’t sure I would like them. A few others are products I don’t buy because the sizes offered in store are too large for me to consume before spoilage. (I can’t afford to waste money, and I don’t like to throw away food.)
It’s the same with some of the personal care items. I frequently see cosmetics or cleansing items on store shelves that I’d like to try, but not for the price of a full-sized product. I’m pleased to see that Minimus.biz is now carrying trial sizes of Tom’s of Maine, Kiss My Face, and other “natural” products.
Oh! I should mention that I have no affiliation with this website. I’m simply sharing.
Are there products you wish you could buy locally in individual sizes or portions? I’m hoping someday to find two slices of white bread in a single-serve portion. I love my healthier breads, but in the summer, I long for just one “‘mater sandwich” on squishy white bread.
Side note: We’re having “weather” here in Memphis!
We got 3 or 4 inches of powdery snow yesterday (a lot here in the southern U.S.), which we managed to pack down nicely so that we now have any icy mess. Lacking more than a couple of snow plow attachments assigned to the interstate overpasses, we have to wait for Mother Nature to take care of things for us. The sun is shining brightly, and our temps may reach the freezing mark today. I’m hoping some meltage occurs on the main roads so that I can get to the gym this afternoon. I’m also hoping (selfishly) that everyone else stays home.)
The ice and/or cold is also apparently affecting my ISP. Internet access seems to be coming in and out. This will not do.
The good news is that the worst is behind us. We’re anticipating temps to reach Spring-rehearsal levels next week, with a high one day of 65°! I can hardly wait!
