I needed to pour cinnamon from a large spice jar into a smaller one. What to do?
In the past, I've tried to make a funnel by wrapping a piece of paper into a cone, but it always comes apart during the middle of the pour and makes a mess on the counter.
|Put the paper funnel in the mouth of a jar.|
Because the mouth of my spice jar was small, I had to hold the funnel in place. With a larger mouthed jar, the funnel would be able stand up on its own.

If I hadn't been trying to take a photograph with one hand it would have been a perfect process. No muss, no fuss.
Maybe my brainstorm means that like minds run in similar directions. Whatever the case, it made a formerly messy task into a neat and tidy one. -- Margy
