“Mmmm…Mediciny!” – Homer Simpson
I have recently discovered that Altoid mint tins serve as excellent storage containers for small shop hardware. They are compact, easy to store, and snap tightly closed.
And, like the taller cigar boxes in which they fit, the tins are fully HTOZ compliant.
Of course, in order to have a satisfactory supply of the tins on hand, the immense amounts of the Altoids mints themselves must be dealt with first.
These get relocated to another larger tin box and kept on a shelf in the shop, ready for consumption.
They are not only delicious, but they keep the geek’s breath nice and fresh while working in the shop!
