[I know that there are a lot of people that hate those big square milk jugs that they have at some Costco locations now. They are hard to fit in the fridge, they are cumbersome, and worst of all, they tend to lead to puddles of milk all over the counter or table top. No one likes that…think of all that wasted milk! So, luckily, a fellow Costco addict and milk drinker, has come up with a solution to stop the spills. The cap snaps right onto your square jug, is dishwasher safe, and will finally allow you to pour with out the puddles.
It’s only a little milk. Spilled or dripped or dribbled each time I pour. Getting it into my coffee seemed particularly difficult and pouring into my children’s cereal bowls resulted in bad manners at the breakfast table. The crusty milk slick on the refrigerator shelf fell out of view, so accustomed to it we had become it was no different than the white on the refrigerator. Add to that we are addicted to Costco at my house.
It would seem easier to purchase milk at a different location. We do shop other stores that also sell milk. Sometimes their milk sells for $1.50 more than the milk at our nearest Costco. But I have another problem: I’m an entrepreneur.
Rather than save the headaches by spending more money on milk, I spent a whole lot more money to invent a user friendly cap for the square milk jug. When you are addicted you will often do crazy things to get your fix. You will visit all the Facebook pages dedicated to hating the Costco Milk Jug telling them about your “Simple and cost effective” invention. You will submit articles to the local newspaper. You will write unsolicited guest blog posts. You will wear t-shirts to Costco that say “We Fix The Jug!” and put a jug on your head for a promotional stunt.
But when your wife says, “I need your invention….”, you know you are right.
There are many reasons the jug cannot and will not be fixed by anyone but users. If a simple and cost effective solution interests you, please visit www.squarejugdeals.com or www.squarejug.com for a cure.
