We had a winner. The blogger prize resets today to 10 dollars.

If I were to admit to an odd habit, of which I know I have several, I would say that trying to figure out labeling and packaging is one. I can't help it. I'm not sure if it is a by-product of almost 10 years in the food industry or if it is always something that I have done. I know that I have always been interested in how things work and how things can be improved and this quirk might just be an off shoot. As my wife can attest, this can sometimes (usually) result in longer trips to the grocery store.

Of course, this extends to when I get home from the store as well. Last night, I noticed something different about the ACT mouthwash when I opened it. The usage size, which you get by squeezing the bottle to the fill line, is almost double what was on the last bottle. While I was at the store purchasing the product, I noticed that they had a new version of the product called ACT 2X. This version you are supposed to use twice a day. This means that you will use twice as much in a bottle that is less that 200% bigger. It's funny to pay more to get less, but I guess most people don't look beyond the NEW that is plastered on the label. I'll take the old product and simply fill it up half way to the old mark. ;)
