If fishing is in your weekend plans, you can whip up this quickie Altoids tin tacklebox! It uses an old gift card and some popsicle sticks to make compartments and a stacking tray.

    I remember a relative having an old cough drop tin done up for fishing flies. Keep your pocket flap buttoned, it’s kind of disconcerting to bend over and then end up chasing it downstream before it sinks. Highly convenient for that kind of fishing.
