TH reader Paul, who must've missed out on entering our weird DIY contest thought other TH types might be intrigued by his Reappropriating Contact Lens Cases project. He writes: "When I travel, I usually need small amounts of some kind of cream or balm or just a few pills, but I don't have small containers to put them in—and I hate buying containers. It's like buying air. I figured out I can use old contact cases, as they're the perfect size for even long jaunts—the contents sometimes me over a month. They're even color-coded or you can write on them with a permanent marker. To separate a case, I just took a Leatherman knife to the middle and sawed away. I then filed away the roughest edges. Not pretty, but it works." From the blog ::880012: A Ship and a Dream.
