Well, okay, maybe not ALWAYS, but most of the time. At least that's been my experience. For example... Yesterday I packed up my Christmas decorations. When I went to get the tape to secure the tree box, of course I had bargain shopped at the "dollar store" and the tape wouldn't stick. Now, I'm not saying this is the case on everything from the dollar stores. I actually enjoy picking up items from there and have found many useful things along the way. However, there are times when an item just isn't worth the bargain. After using the entire roll of clear packing tape and still not having any luck with it staying sealed, I opted to hit up my go to store... Amazon.
Guess what I found... Tape that will actually stick and you only have to use a small strip. I often used Gorilla Mini Duct Tape when doing classroom projects, but now I am convinced the Gorilla Heavy Duty Packing Tape is the way to go when shipping and securing items.
What about you? Do you find that you have the same issues? The "Always Something" that comes up?
