    I’m not clever enough to think of a word, but it’s the same feeling I get when my cling wrap tears and I can’t find the end!

    Mary, I appreciate this blog of Chris Fowler’s is not supposed to be ‘1001 handy hints for the home’, but to save you from future bouts of ‘clingvisibility’, might I suggest that before you let go of the end of your cling-wrap, you give it a twist into a pig-tail, as it were. That way it stands proud of the reel to it which it would otherwise be attracted. What you waste in cling-film, you save in time, frustration and broken finger-nails.

    Does it have to be a portmanteau word like storedom?
    What about a brave new language?
