Cereal is a pretty hot commodity in my house. It’s the perfect breakfast for when you’re on the run, and it’s one of the few things that my entire family likes to eat (picky kids included). Not to mention, cereal makes for the perfect post-dinner, pre-bedtime snack! Because we usually buy cereal in bulk and my kids insist on opening up all of the boxes at the same time, we sometimes find that our cereal is going stale faster than we can eat it.

Sure, some people swear by transferring their cereal into those sealed plastic containers. Personally, I’ve never found it to make much of a difference. And they take up so much room! Fortunately, one UK-based mom discovered a clever hack for folding the tops of cereal boxes to keep cereal fresh for longer.

Becky Holden McGhee shared that she folds the tops of cereal boxes in a certain way to not only keep the contents fresh, but to make ugly, torn cereal boxes look better! Check out her method in action with the video below:

Seriously, how easy and genius is this?!

The way the boxes look when folded like this really appeals to my neat-freak personality.

So simple, yet so clever. Thanks for sharing this genius hack, Becky! I think I’m going to tackle my pantry organization today and do this hack with each and every cereal box in there.
