Cling Wrap

I noticed that the cling wrap was nearly out, so I efficiently bought more. Two weeks later, the old one still wasn't out. As there is not enough space in the drawer and we didn't want the new one on the counter anymore, my wife suggested we throw the old one away.  Just to see how near to the end we were, I unspooled the rest of it.  Yard after yard, and the amount on the cardboard cylinder kept looking exactly the same.  It looked the same all the way to the end - thirty feet of wasted cling wrap. Even at the last few inches, it didn't look any different.  Apparently visual cues are insuffficient.

Haven't used "cling wrap" in years... at least 25. I like containers with lids and baggies. I don't know if my preference is cost-effective or "eco-friendly" and I don't care. I can stack or layer those in the refrigerator or freezer and transport them with minimal worry about leakage, even if they get turned upside down.

I'm not picky about my containers with lids. Rubbermaid, sour cream, deli takeout... if the lid fits well, I like it. Though for foods needing an airtight environment, I'm using a baggie.

It's so THINnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
Some years back I got roll of it from Costco (my daughter and a friend wanted to wrap up another friend's vehicle). It ran out a couple years ago.
