Conclusions . . .
WOW… That was a lot of information.
Are you totally confused? Afraid to drink coffee?
Better question might be: Should You be Drinking Coffee?
I think the answer lies within You, Your health care professional and Your health situation
If you LOVE coffee anyway definitely look into the non chemical decaffeinated versions and maybe only drink one cup a day.
If you are on the healthy freeway of life you are probably taking supplements. and more than likely a ton of them daily, maybe several times a day.
I have tried lots of ways to hold those darn things. From plastic bags to those compartment containers. Segregating them either two or three times daily, all of whom are probably plastic of some sort.
I have had all of them I think, only none of them seemed to fit me or my lifestyle. Either they are too big to pack around (if you are a busy person you might need a suitcase to pack your pill container around), not exactly what you need, or the packaging is not a healthy or environmentally great choice.
In my travels on the world wide web and amazon (because that seems to be the place to find whatever your heart desires and at great prices now-a-days) I came across some silicone containers.
I must have spent a couple hours researching all aspects of these. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. Of course I was looking for something that would be easily recognizable as either morning or evening.
What I found was these great little pots that are sort of tie dyed or striped and in a size that I thought would handle my array of pills I take everyday. They are technically dab containers.
These containers : hold = 22 ml outside dimensions = 2.25 inches(diam) x 1.25 inches (h) inside dimensions = 1.75 inches (diam) x .75 inches + a smidge (h) lids are about 1/8″ thick bottoms are almost 1/4″ thick Wild Colors very sturdy and lids are tight
These delicious little containers come in a variety of “swirl” colors and you are not given a choice which one you receive! It makes is more fun that way don’t you think? They arrive in a cute little bag!
Thank you Mo & Wild Cow! You are the bomb and gave me “knock your socks off” customer service! You have established a great relationship with me and have a life long customer!
I will be ordering another bunch as I need 14 total!
