Tie Back Box Flaps to Return Soda Cans

This might be one of those times when this only bugs me. But if not you are one of those who hates when box flaps get in the way.

I labeled 1000's of pickled veggies for a friend who had a business. When I tried to put the jar in the sectioned off boxes, the flaps would always catch on my wrists or hands.


The same happens for the soda boxes I fill to take them in for a refund. So today I thought of a way to keep them open. I didn't have a rubber band big enough so I used a head band. Elastic works, large scrunchies, even yarn or string. Just keep them open and down while you put the cans in.

This is not a tip that will change the world but if it keeps some stress out of your life, then everything helps.

I smiled when I saw this, because this bugs me too! I have even taped down the flaps of a box if I knew I was going to keep it open for a while. It really is annoying when the flaps constantly catch on your sleeves, or fold back in the way when you are trying to place something in the box, and all it takes is a few seconds to get a rubber band or whatever to hold them down. Good tip!

Thanks. Sometimes I post something that nooooo one else will ever "get" but me. Then it turns out it's not just "me" so I glad you enjoyed it.
