too many dents, short shelf life,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Muir Glen Organic Tomatoes, Diced, 14.5-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) (Grocery)
I don't have much freezer space, I'm getting older, and I hate having to carry heavy cans up all those steps to my home. (Unfortunately, lots of steps inside, too.) I thought I'd stock up a little since I'd used most of what I had this on hand this past winter, and take advantage of free shipping as well as lower prices for "subscribe and save." Guess I'll cancel. There were way too many cans that were badly dented. I'm not talking about little dents in the side, either. When the dent is right where the seam for the top or bottom meets the side, I worry about the integrity of the seal. I also noticed that the "best if used by" date was Feb. 2013, and I bought these in late April 2012. Some canned Libby's organic vegetables (2 kinds) which I bought at the same time had a "best if used by date" of Dec. 2014, so I wasn't happy about the shorter Muir Glen shelf life.

At about 1.83 a can this is no better price than at my local WINCO store in Vancouver, WA. I too am getting older and have found that lugging groceries up stairs is getting to be hard recently. I have started lifting very heavy weights to the point of failure once a week for just 15 minutes based on Doug Mcguff's recommendations in 'Body by Science'. I am so much stronger after just 5 weeks of doing this brief but intense once a week workout that it's gotten to be much easier to do everyday things...like lugging groceries up stairs. So, maybe you should try the, at first glance counter intuitive, mere 15 minutes of 5 basic weight lifting exercises (very heavy weights but less time commitment and a whole week to recover) and go back to getting those wonderful Muir Glen tomatoes at your local discount grocery store where you can avoid dents. Instead buy Doug Mcguff's 'Body by Science' or just watch one of his lectures on youtube. Maybe then you won't "hate" the drudgery of around the house work and generally have more fun in life. Something about your complaint reminds me of myself. I'm feeling so much better with so little effort that I have to share my new knowledge! Practically nothing to do with Muir Glen tomatoes, which are fantastic btw!

This is very kind of you, but I use a kettle ball and do flexibility exercises as recommended by a physician. I'm not weak, per se, but handicapped. Chirop. adjustments also helps the arthritic hip (but does not do much for spouse's herniated disc, etc. -- trying to avoid surgery). I've been told that lifting heavy weights put a lot more stress on the hip which has been warped to the point where one leg is much shorter. I've been losing weight gradually, which helps, though. Thanks for your concern -- I hope your own situation continues to improve.
