A couple days ago I noticed that Target was having a sale on the MIO Composter ($25 down from $100). The ratings don't look so good, but it's because a lot of people didn't know it was for worm composting (vermicomposting). I've never tried worm composting, but it's hard to not hear about it. It seems like it's everywhere and people are raving over it. So I ordered 2. Plus if you log into your Chase Freedom Rewards account, you can get 5 bonus points for every dollar you spend at Target.com.
I was shocked to see them outside today! They shipped extraordinarily fast. I'm also very impressed by the modest amount of packaging. 1 cardboard shipping box, 1 bag, 1 piece of twine to secure the trays and lid together, and instructions/label. Very impressed. They're actually bigger than I thought they would be. The parts are also stamped with a recycling code, so when they eventually break, which I hope won't be for a while but you never know in this house, they can be recycled.
Now I have to order/find some worms and off I go!
