Introduction:Who is happy about change? Many people have realized some of these same retail changes that are far from acceptable and sometimes down right awful. See if your pet pieve is here on this list. Customers have little say in what the manufacturers are doing to products and merchandise.
When did they change the inside of the three musketeers to a mocha colored inside? It used to be a cream colored filling and it was also more dense than it is now. As one bites into the three musketeers the inside is marshmallow like and nothing like it was 40 years ago. The packages are smaller since my brain and memory are still intact. The small bars are smaller and the big bars and smaller too. The multiple bar packs have fewer musketeers in them because the weight is reduced from when I bought these candy bars so long ago.
When did the cereal box become so hard to get into? Now a knife has to be used or a pair of scissors is necessary to open the stiff cellophane inner packaging.Even the boxes that say "open here" need a sharp instrument to get to the contents to eat any of it.Furthermore they do not seal well at all. If you live in a humid climate you can expect to eat soggy cereal that is supposed to be crunchy since the packaging is not good at all. Consumer input was not asked of me before they changed the cereal packages.The boxes have less weight to them too than they have in the past, however the price has drastically increased.
Cough medicine is a job to get to and finally get something out of the modern child proof medicine bottles. Heck, the children can 't get in them, but neither can seniors when they are weak or shaking. By the time the strength is used by pressing down and turning the lid at the same time, the bottle can be dropped and spilled. Not all the contents gets spilled out, but good luck getting your health care provider to give you more of the prescribed cough medicine. The doctors think seniors must be asking for more to sell on the street corners, because if you do get some more it is a thimble size amount.
Twist and push the tab at the same time are some of the instructions on medicine containers. If that is not difficult enough the manufacturers had to make something else that is worse. Others say press here and pull out the foil packet that needs further attention. It is necessary to press the pill and make sure your third hand is catching the pill that will be spit out at the other side. If it falls on the floor, good luck finding it before it rolls under the refrigerator.Hopefully the dog does not get it before you find that rolly poly little pill. Don't bother to ask for another method of dispensing since they did not have another kind for me when I asked.
Most consumers look at eye level, so the prime items the stores want to sell place those at that position on the shelves.Let me tell you to look at ankle level and save so much money. That is where the sale items will be found. Some of the best products are way down by your feet. Test this out and write down some prices as you walk the isles in your grocery store. The department stores do that same thing, so save and bend down and seek the bargains.Look at the discontinued items too. Just because they are discontinued does not mean they are faulty things. It might mean the store does not want to handle that merchandise anymore.
