The Altoids Tin

As I sit here writing there's an empty Altoids Tin sitting next to me and my mind begins to wander over the many future possibilities for the tin.

Altoids Tins have been used for everything from first aid kits to survival fishing kits to radios and toys for the kids. Once upon a time the boys at JRE Industries made me an Altoids Tin sharpening kit complete with several pieces of abrasive paper and a leather strop loaded with compound.

I've used Altoids Tins in the manufacture and storage of charcloth.

Look on the Internet and see just how many people have made mini survival kits in Altoids Tins.

The possibilities are, as they say, endless.

Can you believe some people throw these things out when the mints are gone?!

Thanks for reading,

Your post reminded me of a writing coach i know.
we were walking thru town last spring and he picked up the stub of a pencil from the ground, and whistfully said
"how many great stories are left in this one?"

The empty altoids tin, is full of posibilities.....
