1. snip corner off cereal bag with scissors
2. pour cereal into a tupperware cereal container
3. when desiring cereal at a later time, access is easy.
4. stop living like a college freshman.

I was going to say buy a goddamn pair of scissors, but I see that it's already been covered.

Oh hell no. I can barely work a refrigerator door before the morning caffeine kicks in. I don't trust myself with anything sharper than a TV remote before about 9AM.

Bring back toys! It used to be that at any given time most kids cereals had a toy inside. Now it's a rare thing to see. And would it kill Honeycomb to bring back the small sized license plates that they used to have every year?

At breakfast Anthony found a Corvette Sting Ray car kit in his breakfast cereal box and Nick found a Junior Undercover Agent code ring in his breakfast cereal box but in my breakfast cereal box all I found was breakfast cereal.
 
I think I'll move to Australia.

the opposite of charity is justice: 1. snip corner off cereal bag with scissors
2. pour cereal into a tupperware cereal container
3. when desiring cereal at a later time, access is easy.

Well, let's see the blogger's response to your suggestion:

You're one of THOSE people who use SCISSORS which is AGAINST NATURE and you should stop being so SMUG and posting snotty COMMENTS to my FACEBOOK. Chances of that happening: about the same as a Prius owner not telling you within the first 2 minutes of meeting them that they drive a HYBRID.

Why the hell should I read the article when I can skim the first three paragraphs and come up with the one true, correct response to this?

I also drive a Prius, and am not sure what the blogger is getting at. It's a nice car and great on the pocketbook, as well as the environment.

"See this? Sarah bought this for me. I used to leave the cereal open and it would get stale so she bought this for me. And now I have the freshest cereal."


My problem with those types of containers... Cereal boxes stack well next to and on top of each other. There is little wasted space, since they all have right angles, generally the same height and width, and my pantry is just about wide enough to hold a couple boxes of my girlie's cereal and my own. Hell, more if we turn them over and stack them on top of one another. If we moved to using those types of containers, it would be a waste of space.

/we eat a lot of cereal
//also store my jello next to them. Makes sense.

Well first things first. Stop eating Captain Crunch fat ass. Mix in a few pieces of whole wheat toast, low fat yogurt, oatmeal or fruit. Then maybe this is not a problem plus your skin clears up some and you drop a few pounds.

Never did understand why they stopped using waxed paper bags. Those never ripped when you opened them!

By the end of this year, General Mills will get rid of boxes and your cereal will be in bags like algrant33 posted. You heard it here first.

I have never, in my entire life, had a bag of cereal rip open like that. Is this really a problem that people have?

Why would you buy this? Crunch Berries already comes with Cap'n Crunch cereal. I mean, wouldn't buy a multipack of Total and Raisin Bran, that's just plain a waste of good money right there.

Also, I'm on the put it in a Tupperware container train. You're an adult, it's about time you shopped at the Container Store like the rest of us.

It's a question of name-brand vs. store brand. I think the primary difference between the two is not so much the quality of the food product as much as it is the quality of the packaging.
When cereal packagers cut corners, consumers have to, too.

I still manage to fark those bags up too by ripping them open past where that half-zip opening is. They should at least put it all the way across.

It's like the author doesn't understand shelf-life parameters. Color me surprised.

Also, isn't this one of those "issues" that you easily find a way around by age 5 or so? I'm not sure he should be trusted with a suffocation hazard like that Ziplock bag.
