Yes, jonaj, rubber bands are indispensable; whatever did we do without them?
I haven't bought a Sanitarium product since 1980. Hubby only eats 'Vita-Brits'. He eats a whole concoction of various cereals etc etc etc, on top of them, which I make up for him, mixing them all together, then store in huge Tupperware round containers.
Sometimes I leave cereal in the box and other times I transfer it to another container. If the original box is difficult to keep closed I transfer the cereal. When I know it will be some time before all the cereal is consumed I will put it in a plastic container.
1st of all, I have to take the Weet-Bix packet out of itís box, turn it on itís side, holding onto the cereal with 1 hand, & pulling out a side layer with the other hand! I then put it back into the box as in the size above) & put the box into a Wheet-Bix Tin, which is slightly narrower than the cardboard box!I then put the top layer of Weet-Bix in a small plastic container.
I hope that makes some sense to someone!
