Next time you empty a gallon milk jug, wash it out, draw the lines on like in the photo and make a reusable milk jug (or carton) lunch box.
Use a pin to poke rows of holes, which will become the crease.
Fold it into a little box and add a piece of hook and loop closure (brand name is Velcro) and you’ve got yourself a clever lunchbox!
What other items headed for the recycling bin can be reused to make a lunch box or as a container within a lunch tote?
Don’t want to put food in it? Consider it for the upcoming holiday gift-giving season. I used a few of these for keeping small craft supplies that are used in the same project (think cardmaking) together.
If you don’t want to make a lunch box, you could buy the whole kit and caboodle. Reuseit sells a variety of lunch packing goods and if you’re a first-time Reuseit customer, be sure to select your free gift when ordering (I picked the bamboo utensils and like them!).
Note: I found this item via Pinterest, which I’m learning is not always bookmarked to the original source. Thank you to a reader who post this link to directions.
