I’ve temporarily moved back home until it all blows over, and now that my mum’s on furlough it’s fair to say she’s losing her damn mind.
Wardrobes have been deep-cleaned to within an inch of their life, the shower glass is impossibly spotless, tins and cans in the cupboard have been meticulously re-ordered and clothes are divided into specific categories.
In short, she’s getting on my tits.
It appears, however, that she’s not the only person struggling to keep herself busy while confined to the house, as one woman has discovered/possibly invented a game-changing cereal hack.
Stale cornflakes and dried Rice Krispies are a thing of the past as Blackpool local Becky Holden McGhee has transformed the top of cereal boxes into a sort of interlocking pyramid. It’s like when you see ‘Things Fitting Into Eachother Perfectly’ on Reddit, only infinitely more practical.
Check it out:
The technique involves folding three of the opened flaps at the top of the box back into the centre, before squeezing the two long sides together.
The fourth and final flap can then be folded down to seal the box into the beautiful art-form that it now is.
McGhee also hared photos and a video of the method to her Facebook page, accompanied by the caption:
“Had to share this!!! It’s only taken me 40 years, but I now know the correct way to close a cereal box. Genius. It takes seconds, no more dried up cereal and ugly torn boxes to greet me every morning
**I’ve now added a little video on how to do it. Happy folding! You know I want to see pics!**”
We’ve come far as a species, haven’t we?
The moon landing, the internet, and now this, Becky Holden McGhee’s visionary new breakfast world.
I would show my mum this but she’s already separated all out cereals into clear plastic containers that supposedly keep them fresher for longer.
You’ve still got much to learn Becky.
