Salt And Pepper In A Tic-Tac Box

You don’t want to carry your big salt and pepper pots on your walk with you, but you could always take a few too many sachets next time you visit a fast-food restaurant. Or if you think that’s a bit too unethical, then why not use empty tic-tac boxes and pour some salt and pepper into so it’s a nice small easy-to-carry size!
