I hate the packages inside cereal boxes! The bags are difficult to open, and then once they are opened, because they are made of some mystery material that doesn't fold, you can't fold them down to keep them shut. You either need to use a clip or put it all in another container to keep the cereal fresh. Why can't they use zipper-close bags like so many other products do these days? Grrrrr!

Yeah, it's like major surgery.

I hate that hard plastic that is 10 times bigger than the product!

It is so hard to cut through!

I agree. After you get the paper opened, the bag is torn down and then you can't reclose it without a cip.

I buy toys for my grandson that has all sorts of plastic wrapping and big twist ties. Takes forever to open.

I hate sealed fruit cups. They have almost no fruit in them, and the syrup is packed so tightly that you're guaranteed to spill some when you finally get the #$@& seal broken. We got some free samples at Wegman's this week, and it's the first time I haven't liked something from Wegman's. I can guarantee I'll never buy a product like this.

Here's a tip of the day: Buy a big can of fruit at Costco for not much more than a 4-pack of tiny fruit cups. Spoon it into your own tupperware, and you'll have enough fruit cups for 15 lunches. Plus, each serving will have twice the amount of fruit and your kids won't make a big mess.

I know what you mean. I seem to have trouble opening bandaids (depends on the maker).
