Pocket Sized Commuter Kit




Introduction: Pocket Sized Commuter Kit

About: relaxed pic

I thought this up after being inspired by all the Altoids kits, The Nalgene vials wouldn't fit in one of those tins so I used an unused travel soap dish that I had. I used the vials so that a small quantity of consumables could be carried without worry about leakage or cross contamination with other items in the kit. Since I had 12 vials of the same size, I decided to make a game as well. In Canada it's called X's and O's, the US Tic, Tac, toe, in the UK  Noughts and Crosses. I drew the game board in the lid with a permanent marker.
The multi-tool came from an after Christmas sale. The eye glass screwdriver is from a Swiss Army knife.
The coins and tokens are dimes and transit tokens.
Other Items:
Ear Plugs
Eye glass tissues
Dental Floss and Buttons
Sewing Needle in a mechanical pencil lead case
Antibiotic cream
Small candy mints
Head ache tablets
Salt and Pepper packets
A pair of disposal Nitrile gloves in a Tyvek envelope

Step 1: The Case

The case measures 4.5 x 3 x 1.5 inches. It fits together quite well so that it won't come apart accidentally.

Step 2: Contents in Containers

The labeled contents.The unmarked container is for future use.
The Nalgene vials are item # 6250-0005 sample vials LDPE.

Step 3: Items Removed From Containers

Some of the Items removed from containers, that is why some of them appear crumpled.
The Antibiotic cream and Vaseline come from household packaging.
The dental floss from a large house hold package, wind several yards of it around the end of pen and then slide it off the end into the container. Dental floss is the best thread for sewing on buttons, it never breaks.
The ear plugs got squished together and look like one, but there is two in the package.

Step 4: Play the Game

You can play the game with a fellow commuter or workmate.

    This is a pretty awesome idea. The only thing missing is some duct tape. :) Or maybe not. Just a thought. I could see putting some on the bottom or top of the soap container.

    Thank you, to make the tape usable you could wrap it around the box to help seal it and to keep the box from accidentally opening.

    Thank you, I thought it was, but I wasn't sure of the spelling, I'll try and correct it.
