This is the reason I am blogging about a reusing and recycle project . I found this online and then had to find the correct site to get the details to actually make it. I call the milk carton tote, but you can call it what ever you want. The basic idea had me, and so I waited for the perfect jug of milk to be gone. It was so easy and free except the cost of milk which we buy anyway and even the Velcro closures but I had some already. My only problem was that as soon as I wanted to use that milk jug, no one wanted to drink milk that week so it took longer than I had hoped.
As you can see from the photos a few cuts and some Velcro you have a d.i.y. sandwich tote, or snack case. Amazing, it wipes clean and you can wash in the top rack of dishwasher with out the heat on just because it can warp. But again, I am happy with it. Yes it will not hold soup but that is what mason jars are for. I think if these would get lost in a school lunchroom its not that big of a deal the no sew Velcro dots come in packs of 24 for $3.00 dollars
about the cost of some of the two piece Tupperware sets.
