Do you have a lot of empty bottles laying around? Cut a hole in the cap, weave your paracord through, and you've got a storage solution! It's that simple! You can use soda bottles, cleaning solution bottles, milk jugs, disinfecting wipe buckets, and more! The possibilities are truly endless. Reuse your bottles in a way that is simple, easy, and travel friendly.
