Avoiding the sticky flap

I often get my stamps, stickers and stencils caught on the sticky flap on the opening of their packages so I like to open them with a slit up one side of the packaging which allows me to avoid the sticky flap and helps me get the products in and out of the packages quickly and easily.  It also makes it convenient for me to store the products in their packaging and by keeping the product and the package together I’ll know the name of the product and the manufacturer for when I need to share that information or when I want to make a purchase.
