Munchkin Trial Sizes



If you were to go shopping with me in a CVS, Rite Aid or Walgreen's, you would most likely find me making a B line over to the trial size toiletry section of the store.

I can’t help it, I know it’s more practical to purchase full size products, but for some reason I LOVE having about 50 thousand little trial sizes overflowing in a basket that I keep in my bathroom.

I’ve got everything from dwarf size products of hand cream, shampoo, hair gel, baby powder, body wash, you name it, I’ve got it. I even have trial sizes of Q-tips and band aids. My bathroom looks like one of the Lollipop Guild munchkins from The Wizard of Oz lives here.

Everything is tiny.

I do this mainly because I‘m a new product junkie, and enjoy trial and error before actually purchasing a full size product. But I also do this because I like switching from various products - I get bored using the same stuff all the time. Besides, I find the trial sizes so freakin’ cute.

I’ve never been one who shops at places like Costco or Sam’s; buying everything in bulk. Somehow it makes my bowels feel anxious and overwhelmed, seeing 50 rolls of toilet paper wrapped in what looks like a thick piece of clear plastic tarp, and needing a forklift to get them home. I realize it’s more economical to purchase quantity (especially with a family), but when you’re only shopping for one, it’s more fun to buy in the immediate moment. And since I live in a studio apartment….little is better.

Yet, there are certain things I will purchase in regular full sizes. Things, such as my Rembrandt toothpaste, my Art of Shaving shaving cream, and my Secret deodorant (yes, I know it‘s a woman‘s deodorant, but since it‘s strong enough for a man I can use it too. Shhhh....it's a secret). These are my constant can’t-live-without full size staples.

Oh yeah, and there's one more thing I will always purchase in a FULL size…….





Ooops!…..sorry, I didn’t mean to brag.

*or rather, slightly exaggerate.



Wishing you a big ol’ MAGNUM weekend everyone!

  1. ah shit...i wrote you the best stupid comment and did it disappear on me? i hope not, it was so good and i cannot possibly repeat it again....the most important, what is lining your baskets of these sweet little toiletries, linen napkins, linen doilies, washcloths, nothing? and i thought i was not going to get shocked with dottie's friends and all until the tip began to emerge....now i can't possibly rewrite this comment but it was about the tip and your dimensions....and how much praying i had to do to overcome my nasties...and much 'oh lords' were also uttered.....post febrile i am, and i'm sticking to it...........sticking.

    then i remembered the best part....what i forgot and so did you...last season, you were going to send me a certain little thing you had access to...remember? well, that little sample didn't come and now, i remember now......... so now, i want to know, is it possible or is it possible you had the snail's mail and it didn't come? no, it would come....i mean, of course it would....xoxoxoxox let me know k? i must if possible smell me some. oops, i gave it away...well, not really. xoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxo and if you get the other comment, well, lucky lucky.xox

  2. Too much! I think I'd be more concerned not with the length, but more with the girth. 1.5" might impress some, yet terrify others! ;-)

    I do have to agree with your trial-size addiction. Whenever the wife and I travel we also hit up this section of the store. It's like a wonderland of new and newly-discontinued products that we've often never heard of. "Chocolate-scented shapoo"? Check! "Bubblegum-flavored mouthwash"? Check! "Q-Tip/tooth pick/Toothpaste combo stick thingy"? Double check!

  3. Bonjour Ronnie,

    Now of course; you can't possibly be buying S size for the Trojans! You crack me up :)Thats why we are friends( uh your humor and not the trojans ;) )
    I got such a kick hearing about your "obsession". Believe me; we could have heard worse. Hearing that you collect pink pigs or lipstick containers...

    I am not a collector, but these are "usable" collections. The size is so small so if you tire of it, it is no big loss.Or give away the unopened stuff that you havent used.

    Its nice to see the munchkins!I love those guys :))

    Happy weekend to ya xoxo

    And THEN THE ENDING HAPPENED. :-/

    Those......are NOT in my basket.
    ....just wanting to go on record, of course.....

    LOL
    NOT that it's pertinent information for you or anyone else to have one way or the other.....
    Oh, there is no getting out of this one, is there. LOLOLOL

  5. I use Secret too!!

    I love trial size
    I have a basket of tiny perfume bottles in my bathroom
    they're pretty and I can change how I stink up the joint every single day

    I love the size diagram on those magnums, so subtle

  6. I'm a sample junkie too, Ron. The cosmetic counter staff have a habit of giving them when we buy another product, plus there are hotels who leave them in the bathroom for honest patrons to help themselves. My best come form the cruiseliners who use top products. Hmm, had to rack my brains to remember what that last item was. Heehee, it's been a long, long time..... grins. Have a great weekend.

  7. Good Morning Linda~

    Sorry about your disappearing comment, but I didn't get the first one you published - drats! Blogger has been doing some weird things lately with comments. I've been having trouble too.

    "and i thought i was not going to get shocked with dottie's friends and all until the tip began to emerge....now i can't possibly rewrite this comment..."

    Bwhahahaahahahahahaha! Doesn't it look like a submarine torpedo?

    No, my friend...I haven't forgotten about that 'certain little thing' I promised you, it's just that I haven't had time to send it. However, I'll get it to you sometime before Christmas.

    Thanks for stopping by, dear lady! Always great to see you!

    Hope you're feeling better!

    Have a grrrrrrrrreat weekend!

    "I think I'd be more concerned not with the length, but more with the girth. 1.5" might impress some, yet terrify others!"

    Bwhahahahhahahhahahaahha! I know what you mean, because I thought the exact same thing! Somehow the girth looks a bit odd in comparison to the length. Isn't it freakish-looking? I tried searching for other photos, but alas, they all had the same girth - a #2 pencil!

    "Chocolate-scented shapoo"? Check! "Bubblegum-flavored mouthwash"? Check! "Q-Tip/tooth pick/Toothpaste combo stick thingy" Doube check!"

    Too funny!

    "Now of course; you can't possibly be buying S size for the Trojans! You crack me up :)Thats why we are friends( uh your humor and not the trojans"

    No, I could NEVER be buying S size Trojans, that would be like trying to wear a size 7 shoe with a size 12 foot - Bwhahahahahahahahahaha!

    "we could have heard worse. Hearing that you collect pink pigs or lipstick containers..."

    Ooooo, lipstick containers....you just gave me a new collection idea - HA!

    "The size is so small so if you tire of it, it is no big loss.Or give away the unopened stuff that you havent used."

    Exactly.

    Isn't Secret the best deodorant? I started using it while living in Florida because of the heat and sweating so much. I LOVE IT!

    "I love the size diagram on those magnums, so subtle."

    Oooooo....and don't you just love the samples you get at the cosmetic counter? We give them out too, and it's amazing how many times a customer will come back after trying them and actually purchase a full size product. Samples are great selling tools.

    Yup, hotels and cruseliners are some of the best places to sample trial sizes.

    Always such a delight to see you, dear lady! Wishing you a terrific weekend!

  13. O.M.G... that last picture... Wow, learn something new about you every day! hehe

    I think your basket of little trial sizes sounds absolutely adorable! Although, if my husband used your bathroom he would probably have a panic attack!!! He's a BULK guy. Must have like 12 rolls of toilet paper in the house at all times or he gets the sweats. And since he's a hair monster, I have to buy him the LARGE bottle of Tresemme and there should be a back up bottle or two of that as well.
    Two cans of tuna is good but 10 would be better because then he's not worried about next week or the week after. Same thing with soup. And carrots. I think he's mentioned two or three times that we have been out of carrots this week. LOL Oh, and soap. He likes the bulk size pack of bars. If I buy a measly 3 pack he makes a comment.
    We do have a small home, but thank thee Gods for a basement! He put shelves in down there so I could buy 'extra' stuff. The only thing is... we go out to eat alot sometimes and also I'm never sure what I feel like making each week so there have been times I've had to throw out some stocked canned goods because the date was expired. Oops. So I prefer to not have toooo much of anything like that.
    We don't have a membership to anywhere like Sams or Costco... but OMG, if we did, my man would have an orgasm everytime we walked in there!!!

    Have a great weekend!

  14. I think I learned something valuable today. I don't know what it is but I am going to remember this post every-time I am looking for space in my tiny and cramped apartment and when I go to the store - buy trail sizes and buy new brands.

    P.S. The only sizes I've seen for Condoms are Large, Jumbo & Super-Jumbo.

  15. Good Morning Crystal Chick~

    "O.M.G... that last picture... Wow, learn something new about you every day!

    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA! I know, just when you thought you knew EVERYTHING, right?

    I love being silly - tee, hee!

    I think if I had a home and partner, I too would likely shop in larger quantities because it really is more ecomonical and just plain practical, so I can understand your hubby enjoying bulk size readily available.

    Oooo...and I too sometimes use Tresemme shampoo. It's inexpensive and VERY good!

    As far as groceries go, I shop more like a European city dweller - every 4-5 days. I like things fresh and also because of my small apartment, I can't have too much.

    "We do have a small home, but thank thee Gods for a basement!"

    OMG, how lucky you are. Having a basement is like having a whole other room in your house!

    "We don't have a membership to anywhere like Sams or Costco... but OMG, if we did, my man would have an orgasm everytime we walked in there!!!"

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH! Yeah, I bet he would!

  19. LOL I nearly choked laughing when I got to the end of your post Ron - you're a card!

    I used to have a basket in our guest room filled with samples of all sorts of stuff like you have. Guests loved it, trying out things they hadn't tried before. Quite a lot of the stuff in there were toiletries from hotel rooms which I hadn't used because I'd taken my own. I thought I may as well take them home as I'd paid for them! ;)

    " I nearly choked laughing when I got to the end of your post...."

    Tee, hee...aren't I a wicked?

    Yes, you're right...another great thing about having trial sizes is for when you have house guests who may have forgotten to bring something.

    "Quite a lot of the stuff in there were toiletries from hotel rooms which I hadn't used because I'd taken my own. I thought I may as well take them home as I'd paid for them!"

    Exactly, you paid for them, so why not take them home?

  23. Ok, first confession time. As I was reading your post and I was scrolling down, at first, it was only the top of the picture and I'm thinking to myself "Why in the hell does Ron need tampons? He's stranger than I thought!" LOL I don't know why that was the first thing that popped in my head until I saw the package! Ok... confession time over.

    I love trial sizes too. That's why I love to travel...so I have an excuse to buy the little bitty packages of stuff!

  24. Okay first I want to say you can brag all you like!!! If there is something big to be proud of...go for it!! second...I use Secret too!! Of course it would be that we both like the scent of Secret. That is just too funny. I am also like you in that I love small beauty products. I have my travel kit always ready to go with the greatest and latest little items. I am so glad so many companies make their products in mini sizes. I also hate Costco and places like that. I don't like to buy in bulk either. It gets my bowels all twisted too!!

When in Longs or CVS, I'd get caught up for hours and hours- (well, not that long, really) but I'd LOVE to see what kind of good stuff they had... In fact, just walking up and down the aisles at the drugstores was one of my FAV things to do when I was in the U.S. last year! WHOOO hoooo...

    As far as the Trojans go some things are just more sensible to buy in bulk and if the bulk purchase of TP really gets to your bowels then you just may look into the trial size packages there, I think they are labeled as Kleenex though.

    I have a cupboard full of bathroom tissue, a pantry shelf full of kleenex and another cupboard full of economy sized refill bottles of house cleaning products.

    Seems like I'm forever having to run to the store for something. It's my little way of attempting to eliminate these pesky errands. For some reason, this logic never exactly works though.

    Is it just me or is the combination of the munchkins and the 8.1" trojan just too weird? Overtones of porn.

  53. I was in Publix the other day and they had some of those condoms in the "clearance" bin. Had I known, I would have gotten them for you! ;) Apparently they aren't big sellers here with the geriatric crowd.

    Those little trial size are good when you want to try out a new item. I also used to take all the little shampoos and things from hotels but gave up on that when I had a whole box full that I never used!

    Bwhahahahahahahahahaha! OMG, I LOVE YOU, WOMAN!

    Yeah, I know...in Florida it's more of the VIAGRA that's in demand - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Yes, that's one of the main reason WHY I love those little trial sizes. Trial and error.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Sis! Always so great seeing ya!

    Hope you had a super weekend!

    X ya!

  55. "Somehow it makes my bowels feel anxious and overwhelmed, seeing 50 rolls of toilet paper wrapped in what looks like a thick piece of clear plastic tarp..."
    Now, I'm the exact opposite. I start to get all concerned when I don't have enough toilet paper in the house to get us through Armegeddon and back.
    I am a fan of those little trial size bottles though. Everytime we stay somewhere I take the extras in the hotel room. I figure, I'm paying for it.

  56. Hey Jen~

    "Now, I'm the exact opposite. I start to get all concerned when I don't have enough toilet paper in the house to get us through Armegeddon and back."

    Bwahahahahahahahaha...OMG, that's HYSTERICAL!!!

    "Armegeddon and back."

    And I know what you mean though, because whenever I run out of toilet paper while on the loo, I think to myself, "Now why the hell didn't I get it in BULK??"

    Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the laugh!

    Enjoy your day!
