My mom shared this with me and I was shocked! I feel like an idiot! LOL

I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself. Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? You know when 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 wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.

I'm sharing this with my friends. I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this.

You know this has a much deeper meaning for me. How often do we do this with EVERYTHING in life? :)

I just looked at my new roll on the counter. They could make it a little more obvious! Who reads the side of the package? It's not like they feel like buttons or stick out in any way! :-) Learn something new everyday! If they had a childproof lock would be even more beneficial. Ryan's favorite thing to do is unroll it every chance he gets.
