No nonsense is my approach. If something doesn't work, just cut it off. Well, admittedly that doesn't work for everything, but for food storage lids it was slick.
These glass dishes with the side snap lids were the hottest item several years ago. I bought a set for my elderly mother. When they were new, the lids popped on and off easily. After a few years, even I could not make them fasten. The side flaps were a total nuisance, filling the cupboard and crowding the fridge.
Scissors were the tool for this one of the Things I get to do today: quick, easy, no nonsense.
