Beginning my day with this thought!
I think cereal boxes should come with transparent panels on one side. Why? Because in compiling my shopping list, recently, I was convinced we had plenty in the cupboard, because we had quite a variety of boxes. Silly me: on checking more carefully, I found most of the boxes were nearly empty!
I do not like plastic containers, therefore I really need to discipline myself to check cupboard provisions more closely, when preparing my lists. Except………………………..that is too much detail. I have better things to do. So I guess I will have to live with the surprise of finding…..surprise, the cereal is almost gone!
