Who would have known... now it all makes sense...

This tip is from Alice at My Wintersong and after I read it I hit my head with the back of my hand, went to my kitchen, examined my generic (Ja brand) plastic and foil wrap, and said to myself: "Dur". Join me in my feeling of idiocy.

Who ever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? What a fantastic idea. Now,if someone would just make plastic wrap that didn’t stick to itself.I’ve been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time. Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, ”Press here to lock end”. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can’t count the number of times the Saran warp roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up. I’m sharing this with my friends that did not know this. If you all ready know this, delete this message and don’t e-mail me and make me feel dumber than I already feel. If you didn’t know this, e-mail me and let me know so I won’t feel so dumb. I hope I’m not the only person that didn’t know about this.

Well I'll be!
I checked and you are right! LOL except on the boxes from Australia... I have a couple that were packed into the shipment - they don't have the 'press here' but the Egyptian ones do!
Love, you learn something new everyday!

LOL... She certainly wasn't the only person.

Thanks for the comment on my post about my mother. I'm going to pick up Newsweek today at the store.
