Men Are From Mars; Women Are From Who Cares?

14 Aug

Picture the scene: a new box of cereal, too tall for the cereal shelf.

Solution: reduce the size of the box.

Here is the Hub’s handiwork:

           Crunchy Neat

Here is mine:

            Rice Tearmies

Where do you stand on the Seriously?  It’s just cereal! debate?

    Open box, pour contents into plastic container, dispose of box and liner in trash or recycling — no debate required! 😉

    I’d be in Hub’s camp. Mr Indecisive would be in yours. 😊

    Hi Tilly-
    This regularly happens to us but neither or your solutions are used. I squeeze the pack in the middle and fold the excess over and ram it into the team cupboard.

      *dunno what the word “team” is doing there.

    take the liner out of the cardboard box, discard the box. keep the liner closed by folding over the top and using a paper clip at each end. Works a treat.

    I’ll bet you colored outside the lines in kindergarten, too, didn’t you?

      why, yes I did. And I refused to share my poster paints, too.

    It has been such a long time since I’ve had cupboards…

    Make sure liner stays intact. It can be crinkle-closed after each use. Store the box on its side.

    Ah…tho yours was an artistic rendering of…something, I’m sure….Hub Wins! 🙂

    Why not just put it on the side? 🙂

      Also, maybe you could actually move up the shelf.

    Ditch the box and clip the bag shut is what I do.

    Yours is too modern-arty. His could do with some creative snipping of a pattern round the edges.

    Life’s too short for the Hub’s fix.

    I’d give in to Ziploc bags!! I do think that your effort leaves me to believe you were half-starved and had to get at the cereal NOW! I can’t open packaging without doing a lot of damage, but I try to hide that fact. So I suppose I cannot judge! LOL!

    I actually laughed out loud at seeing your Cereal box. 😂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
