That’s it! I’ve had it!
There is nothing more frustrating than going to get a piece of aluminum foil out of its box and having the roll dump out of the box and onto the floor and unravel itself. Aaaaugh!
It never goes back in the same way and inevitably I cut myself on that sharp strip on the box.
Not anymore. I have decided to exact control over this situation in my life. This one being one of the few that I can control!
Actually, I didn’t decide anything at all. I just learned, after years and years of buying these boxes of foil, parchment, plastic wrap, etc that there is a way to keep the roll from moving!
Let me fill you in…
Here is a typical box of parchment paper.
Here is what I’ve missed out on for eons. There is a secret, maybe not a secret to anyone else, “tab” on both sides of the box that you push in. That’s it. Nothing else. Nothing fancy. Just a tab that you push in.
And the miracle that this tab performs? You got it. It wedges itself into the hole on the side of the roll of parchment paper and MAGIC, the roll doesn’t ever escape from teh box again. Ever.
Simple pleasures. They make my world go round.
