Travel Tip – Egg and Fruit Baskets

Question?  How many eggs can you fit in a 1 lb. strawberry carton?

Travel Tip - Egg and Fruit Basket

June always calls for a trip to the mountains for my family.  A getaway from all things “man made” to enjoy all things “God made.”  I NEED a break from city life and loads of people.  Mountains are my paradise. They may stand unmoved through time, but yet they are ever-changing.  Green or golden, shrouded in fog or gleaming in sunlight I will take them over a beach most any day. The taller the better.

Today, I am tackling a new set of mountains…laundry.  We are back and life goes on.

But, I just happen to have a few tips to share. While packing I always try to clean out of the refrigerator anything I expect to spoil while we’re gone. Last week it was strawberries and cherry tomatoes.  I was about to toss away the containers when I wondered if they might have a second use.

How many eggs can I fit in a 1 lb. strawberry carton?  13 

Not too tight, but not able to jiggle and break during a 6 hour drive. No more soggy cardboard carton in an ice chest, no more long cumbersome egg container. Nice tight and compact, fit anywhere egg basket with 13 eggs.

The leftover cardboard egg carton perfectly protected 8 apricots without a bruise. Again, a 6 hour drive and not one bruise.

Lastly, the cherry tomato carton held a whole cluster of grapes without the stems.

In three little containers I had all my fragile perishables protected and ready to use at our campsite.

Not a bruise, not a crack, NO mess.
