The six packs that your bottled booze, soft drink or water come in are great for carrying other stuff, like a backyard dining kit, for example. Here’s how you can turn one, and the bottles that come with it, into a snack carrier for car trips, or just tidy organisation.
Obviously, the first thing you’ll want to do is wash out the bottles and let them air dry. If they don’t come with a reusable lid, you can use plastic wrap and a rubber band to cover the top of the bottle. Once they’re dry, fill each bottle with a different snack — make sure it’s something that’s easy to fill the bottle with, but also something you can easily shake out of the bottle when you want it. Then drop each bottle in each open space in the carrier. Now you have an easy way to transport a bunch of snacks. You can cut some snacks into smaller pieces so they fit, like dried fruit, or you can use different bottles then the ones that came with the carrier if you want a wider neck.
Use this snack carrier for long road trips (no more hunting through a bag to see your snack options), store it in your desk or use it to simply keep snacks together and neatly organised. If you have kids, you could put “approved” snacks in the carrier so they know what to choose from when they’re hungry rather than having to ask you each time or raid the pantry.
