Elegant Storage from Sistema and a Rocco follow up!

Start with Why…

I’ve a feeling that this week’s email is going to be a fairly brief one. It has been known for me to feel that and yet, by the time I’ve finished it's several paragraphs long, so we’ll just have to see how it goes.

 Incidentally if you’re a cat person and interested in an update on Rocco (see last week’s email), I had a reply from his owner to say that apparently he’s got quite a reputation in Reigate High Street, quite the cat about town, by all accounts. And if you’re a Facebook user (as opposed to other types of user) then there’s a group called “we Love Reigate” that features him if you search cat!

 And the only other update that I can think of is that having talked about finding my “Why “last week, a friend texted me to say that she is reading the book at the moment, but I’ve yet to find out what motivated that? I’ve now progressed to the follow up book called “Find your Why” which aims to help you do just that. First impressions are that it’s a well thought through approach, but not easy….I suppose if it were, everyone would be doing it! 

Two sentences from the intro to the book struck me and I wonder if they might you too?
“Happiness comes from What we do.”
“Fulfilment comes from Why we do it.”
I rather liked that…

Ultra Storage from Dexam

Anyway to product. Some time ago, Bryony Dyer, who is the MD of Dexam, came to see me as is her wont and as result of one of her visits (with cake naturally, what a kind girl) she sent me some samples of what was then a new range of storage.

It’s called “Ultra” comes in two forms, square and round, from the New Zealand firm, Sistema. It's stackable (and when I say stackable it is really safe to stack three or four canisters on top of each other without fear of them toppling), airtight, and made of Tritan plastic which is not only safe for food storage, but is extremely difficult to break (in most people’s books its unbreakable).

The 'Square' version is completely clear, barring the black seal around the lid, looks smart in a fairly minimalist way, and rather cleverly has a transparent lids so that if you are looking down on them you can still see what’s in them. At home we keep everything in drawers, big and small and it would be possible to store them quite low down and yet still see we’ve got. Simple and clever.

The Round version has a bayonet type of fitting, unlike the two clips on the square, and is arguably a smidgen easier to open. The lids are solid white and grey in colour (so you can’t look down through the lid) with clear Tritan bodies making it otherwise easy to see what’s within. 

We keep 4 sizes of each style in stock, that range from 330ml to 1.2 litre in Round and 460ml to 1.3 litre in Square. Pricing ranges from £5.50 to £11.00.

For this weekend I’m offering you 20% off when purchasing 2 or more canisters. Use code ULTRA2 if on the website or tell us who you are if coming into the shops (valid until 23:59 on Monday 24th January 2022) .
