    I would like to audition for American Inventor. I have, out of fear of tearing all of my hair out -come up with a simple, cost effective and much needed prototype for stackable plastic food (or other) containers that WILL KEEP THEIR LIDS ON! Not only do I guarantee this will solve the problem of never losing another lid for a container -they will be stackable in TWO directions -thus saving cabinet space. The few people I have shared the idea with (family and two close friends) -have told me to proceed with this idea because they, too, are sick of flipping their lids over lids that have flipped into another dimension.

    I live in Florida- but should you accept me on your show, I would be willing to travel at my expense to present my idea.

    I have searched the Internet for something like my invention- and have come up with NOTHING. The funny thing is -it’s a rather simple idea . . .one that will leave people asking, “Why didn’t they come up with this before?” Sometimes the simplest of ideas are the best. Where would be without the almighty paper clip or thumb tack?

    Thank you for your consideration -and please let me know how to formally apply to be on your show. I am weary of going to company or an invention firm with this idea, as I have heard many stories of them rejecting you and then making something suspiciously similar. I trust your show.

    Kindest regards,
    Linda Ahuna
