Snacks are an important way to satisfy cravings between meals or on a long trip, so many people look for ways to conveniently carry snacks. Creating a more long-lasting alternative to plastic sandwich bags as a snack holder allows you to better manage and enjoy snack on-the-go.
1. Select a container to recycle that is already in your home. Use a small potato chips can, baby food jar, small Tupperware or baby bottle with lid not the bottle. Any of these items are available at a mass merchandiser such as Target if you do no have them in the house.
2. Test different containers to see which one works best for your needs. For instance, if you want to have snacks available on a commute, test the potential containers in your cup holder.
3. Personalize your snack holder. Use craft or acrylic paint to paint the container your favorite color. Use paint pens or permanent markers to write on your snacks holder after the paint dries. Write the type of snack on the lid to help with organization. Craft stores like Hobby Lobby or Michaels sell the paint and markers.
4. Make additional snack holders. Prepare multiple snacks in advance of a trip or outing and store in your different holders until it\'s time to leave. Make color coded snack holders by painting each container different based on the type of snack or who it belongs.
5. Connect more than one plastic or cardboard snack holder together so you can carry more than one snack and save space at the same time. Drill a hole through one of the lids and all of the containers and run a straw or dowel through all of the holes. Now you can swivel the containers around the straw or dowel to open them.
