Lego Lunchbox

Know a LEGO fan?  Try this clever idea to make a handy travel case out of a tin lunch box to help kids bring along and build LEGO sets on the go! This could be a lifesaver when traveling, waiting at the the doctor’s office or restaurant. It takes just a few minutes to make, and would make such a fantastic and unique gift for LEGO loving kiddos.

DIY LEGO Travel Case

Supplies Needed:
LEGO Classic Baseplate
Tin Lunch Box
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Utility Knife
LEGO Bricks

DIY Lego Travel Kit

Directions: On the back of the LEGO baseplate, mark how big you need it to fit on the top portion of lunch box. Keep in mind that you’ll want to cut it small enough so that the lid can still close.

Carefully use a ruler and press down with a utility knife to score the plastic. Bend the baseplate back and forth a few times and it will split where you’ve cut a line. Glue it to the top of the lunch box.

Place LEGO bricks inside box.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
