Do the controls for your electric blanket sit on the floor - is making adjustments and turning it off, a hassle that involves reaching out from under the covers.

Same

But 2 coat hangers stuffed under the mattress and I'm snug as a bug in a rug again.

Yeah I used to think they were for girls, until I found out they cost between 1c and 4c an hour to run.

Once I heard that, I was like - "Call me 'Grandma Larry' - I'm in""

Did you just buy some tupperware with a weak seal and think a hair elastic will fix that - but it turns out the curved lid means the elastic might slip off -

Same

No worries - just cut a notch out of the lid to hold the elastic in place

Then you think - those holes in the lid might let water in if it rains.

Loz, these are marketed as air tight. Might be handy for the gulpers out there

Thanks for that - Yeah I've got a couple of the "sistema" ones from coles - rubber seal and clips - but I always add a hair elastic just in case something goes wrong. Most tubs are elastic friendly so I didnt bother to check if these ones would let the elastic hug them and hang on

The tubs pictured above were a bad purchase but they were wrapped in plastic and I couldnt test the seal - but I needed them quick for a maggot related project.

So these tubs are just a series of failures that ended up ok

(still cant put the lid back on because the stink of the silicone takes 7 days to clear

My daily tackle storage runs on a modular system where I try to carry enough spares to last the session but not too much gear.

Everything is prerigged.

Here's what I carry on a standard - pinkie/jewie session.

The 2 smallest boxes are my pocket boxes - I need a separate one for the ZMANS - then I have my slightly larger boxes which are double ups.

Then I'll have a bag with a variety bigger jewie lures in it.

It mainly 1/8ths and 1/4ers for the pinks - and a variety of different stuff for the Jews.

They all live in my Milk crate on the back of the bike and slip in and out of my pocket as I need them.

(I have other little boxes for reddies, trout and carp)

Forget these, i tested them with water and it held fine even after vigorous shaking, leaving it upside down over night etc, but put gulp in there and it leaks like a mofo, now have a stinky tackle bag again. maybe the changes in temps outdoors caused greater pressure differential I dunno.
