Use an empty milk jug and turn it into Tupperware for leftovers.


Clean, empty plastic milk or juice jug

Permanent marker

Adhesive Velcro dot (3M brand in the example)

Scissors or sharp knife


Use the marker to draw along the smooth part of the jug, going up to the creases and coming back down to the bottom. Leave the back of the jug the highest.

Take the scissors and cut along the lines.

Cut crease lines along the lines already created.

Close the jug by folding the left and right sides down, then the front side on top of those two folds.

Holding all three sides down, grab the adhesive Velcro dot and stick the adhesive side on the top fold, which should be the front side of the container.

Place the second part of the Velcro dot onto the already placed adhesive side then close the container by folding over the backside.

The container is reusable, but hand-wash rather than put in the dishwasher.
