Good morning peevers.

It's a wet and overcast morning here- guess I'd better get used to that.

Following on from yesterday's peeve cloven came up with a heartfelt comment about how difficult it is to get the last bits out of a container.

Here's what she wrote;

Not to mention, packaging that makes it harder to use up all the product inside:
such as stand-up toothpaste dispensers that you cannot squeeze bottom of to get last 1/4 of the paste out,
or shampoo/conditioner bottles with tops that don't come off, and you can't tell how much is left in the bottle,
but you still can't get the last bits of it out & have to throw it away with some product still inside. Aaargh.


Well that has to be worthy of the POTD!

So cloven, the POTD is;

Packaging that makes it harder to use up all the product inside

oh yes, this peeve is right on. I have trouble with so many products. And in some cases, I can't even open the product to begin with.

Hi Molly! Taking it easy is a good thing as Martha Stewart would say!
