I get jealous when I see that someone has come up with a cool use for a product that I consistently find myself throwing away or recycling. I was supremely jealous when I received an email from reader Jo, detailing how he turned a Tetra Pak drink carton into a saddle bag. All text and pictures below are credited to Jo, and be sure to check out his blog (link below) for even more pics and details.

Hi guys, being alot cash poor, whenever I need something for my bike I'm always looking for the cheapest (preferably free) way to get it. I used to have a lovely leather Brooks tool bag that sat quietly under my saddle and carried a little tool kit (just in case)...but as with most things age got the better of it and after making a few repairs to the straps I've decided to retire it.
What I now have instead is this fab tetrapack saddle bag made from a recycled milk carton a couple of spokes and a whole heap of duct tape. If you'd like to have a go a making one yourself have a look at my blog page where you'll find loads of pictures and a how to.
