I am so excited. I have taken a long weekend off and I plan to do as much relaxing and reading as possible. Not to make you jealous or anything but I have taken Friday and Monday off so my long weekend officially starts now. And now for Bytesized.
Everyday things millennials don’t use anymore
You’re a millennial if you were born between 1981 and 1996, I was born in 1984 so I am part of the generation that one person claimed spends their money on Avocado toast and that’s why they don’t have money to buy houses. When it’s not Avo season, Avos at Woolies are expensive but not house expensive. Although when Trevor Noah asked Oprah about things she does because she has wealth, she said she bought an Avo farm because Avos are so expensive.
Bars of soap – apparently we think it leaves way too many germs behind after each wash. I do love Dove though
Doorbells – we just message and say “Here”
Fabric softener – I don’t use fabric softener on clothes but that’s because my BF does the laundry in our house. When I asked him, he said he doesn’t use it either. I do sometimes put a lavender-scented refill in my car and use it as an air freshener.
Paper serviettes – we prefer paper towels. I use paper towels and paper serviettes and I’m a millennial… now what?
I use a PopSocket on my phone and I can’t imagine what I would do without it. I would probably drop my phone a lot. But now you can get a PopSocket to hold your beverages. Is this genius or marketing gone too far?
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
