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.
Eye glass tissues
Dental Floss and Buttons
Sewing Needle in a mechanical pencil lead case

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.
