There is no sound my husband hates more than the jerky scream of packing tape being pulled off the roll. I admit, it’s an unusually loud and jarring noise, even from a couple of rooms away. So when I recently ran out, I went looking for alternatives, and I have been extremely pleased with what I found: Office Depot’s Medium Duty Packing Tape. It’s just their standard tape, but it’s thicker, stickier and less expensive than the Duck Brand tape I had been using, and better yet–it’s noiseless! Now I can pack and tape as much as I want and it doesn’t bother anyone. Huzzah!
