FoilBoxTabsTipWho doesn’t occasionally need a little advice from the helpful tips, tricks and tidbits floating around the Internet?

Here’s one that should be familiar to most of us, but surprisingly catches us off guard once in a while when a roll of aluminum foil pops out of the box and ends up unrolled and dinged up on the floor.

There are little tabs on each end of the box that should be popped in, snapped free or cut and pushed into the cardboard tube in the box. Once in place, it is easier to unroll the foil and tear without it flopping out.
