No more little pink wrappers!

These wrappers are killin me┬áSeveral years ago, I purchased on Amazon a huge box of Sweet-n-Low packets for DH to put in his morning coffee. And it was a huge box – 3000 packets!! Price per ounce is almost free at that amount (and if you are purchasing for a workplace, this is a very good deal).

However, if the janitorial staff consists of only oneself, this purchase can and did get a little irritating. I started finding little pink wrappers all over the kitchen almost every day. Sometimes just the top of the wrapper, sometimes the larger half (sprinkling┬áremaining white powder on floor, dog, cat, my bare feet, etc.). I like to think of myself as someone who doesn’t sweat the small stuff, but I apparently had my limit.

I marched the box of pink stuff down to the church for use in the fellowship hall (I have never seen a random pink packet on the fellowship hall floor – maybe they disintegrate on the descent like a reverse-manna process).

In the damnable box’s place, I ordered a bulk┬ábag of sweetener and this:

I love it – it’s plastic, so it won’t shatter and hand washable (how hard is it to wash something that holds a highly dissolvable substance? Even I can handle that!).

Haven’t seen a little pink wrapper since!!!
