Consumer Crafts had generously sent the contributors at A Nest for All Seasons a really great pack of organizational and craft supplies. With this we were each challenged to come up with a way to use them and start getting ourselves organized.
And I kept staring at the wedding favor tins which I have seen made into great spice racks, holding small crafts supplies and other hardware. But then what happened was I thought of a use for it outside of the home one day when I went to the gym.
So I decided to come up with 10 different travel (portable) ways to use the favour tins.
This doesn’t necessarily mean airplane travel. For example…
#1 – Earphones and other media cables
This post all started because I was so tired of my headphones tangling up in my gym bag. Then one day I put them into the tin and problem solved. Now this goes with me to Goodlife. Also works great for USB cables.
# 2 – Spare Change
“Hey Mom, do you have a loonie for Girl Scouts tonight?” “Hey Mom, it’s pizza day today, sorry I forgot to tell you.” This stays in the car and gets refilled with about $5 worth of miscellaneous coins for fun moments like forgetting Girl Scout and Pizza Day money, five minutes before they’re due.
#3 – Mints
We buy a lot of things in bulk from Costco and I am always searching for containers to keep them in. I re-fill this as needed and it comes along with me and I leave one in the car.
#4 – Lotion
What else do I buy in giant sizes? Bottles of hand lotion. I can transfer some in here rather than take the giant container with me.
#5 – Portion Sized Snacks
Now this may depend on how big your hand size is but for me, this about the equivalent of a portion of almonds. Which on the go, is very useful.
#6 – Protein Powder
My husband drinks a lot of protein shakes post work out or as a meal supplement. This is a good scoop size worth of protein powder for a shake. So you can mix it anywhere should you buy a drink, if you don’t feel like or can’t take a giant sports bottle with you to mix it in.
#7 – Vitamins
If you’re not partial to carrying around your vitamins in the Monday to Friday containers you get at the drugstore, get your daily stash and put them in here instead. It’s also a tad more discreet.
# 8 – Media Cards
I don’t know about you, but I am constantly trying to sort out how to carry these little things. This was way better than my previous incarnation of putting them in my wallet or a giant camera bag which I do not always carry around with me when I take out my camera.
#9 – Emergency Sewing Kit
Ladies and Gentlemen, you may or may not know all too well what happens when you’re far away from home for a night out and something rips at the seam. A small thing like this even just stored in your car or bag will make all the difference in the world.
# 10 – Jewelry
And speaking of nights out, say you’re at the office and have an event to go to that evening, this makes an excellent case for any additional small jewelry you may want to change into.
The possibilities for these seem endless and there were also some more goodies that Consumer Crafts sent over to help us get organized.
Now you get the chance to win them for yourself!
