Cereal is an important stockpile item. Not only is it an easy breakfast food, but it’s also a great ingredient to spruce up just about anything edible, from shrimp to dessert. Many people, however, face the dilemma of how to close a torn open cereal box. If the box is left as is, the cereal goes stale, affecting its texture and taste. As a solution, many people just move the contents into an empty airtight jar and dispose of the original container.

But netizen Becky Holden McGhee from Blackpool, England figured out a way to close a cereal box with just one’s hands, no special equipment required. “It’s only taken me 40 years, but I now know the correct way,” she wrote on her Facebook.
