How to make your tissue box full (and retrievable)
This tutorial might be extremely banal and simplistic, but it solves a pet peeve of mine so I thought I'd share it anyway. Admitting I have a problem with things like this may say more about me that I want to admit! Does anyone else experience this?
After removing the first tissue, the second comes out nicely, ready to use. Halfway through the box, the tissue can't reach that far up, so stays down. I dig through the plastic slit only to continuously widen it further to the point of uselessness each time. The nearer I get to the bottom, the more frustrated I am by this ritual that I just dig the remaining batch out and toss the box.
To solve this inefficient eyesore, I kept a previously used box and flattened it. I scored new lines on 2 sides (one short and one long) to make the base just a tad smaller than original, so that it can fit into another box.
Once the same predicament happened again, I turned the half-used box upside down and inserted the trimmed older box into the new one and glued the tabs back in place. Ah, uninterrupted tissues ready for a sneeze!
