Since I'm bored and high.. A pretty good homemade thing I've got is my Sharpie stash. It only holds a nice size J, but it's still nice. Plus, it's easy to do, most people have the stuff, and the Sharpie still works. Sharpie, scissors, bic pen lid, lighter. 1. Pull the top on the Sharpie off, grab the lid pretty tight until you have the entire top half of the pen off and you can pull out the ink sponge thing. (The easiest is to just wiggle it a little bit and it comes apart really easy.) 2. Take the ink thing completely out, so you have 3 pieces, the top, the labeled plastic part, and the ink. Bend the ink thing right below where it is in the black piece, now get a pair of scissors (do this over a trash can) and cut the ink right below the bend, you will get a 1" piece. 3. Put the 1" ink thing into the black piece (it should fit all the way in there). Now get the lid from a bic pen, and shove that into the black piece of the Sharpie. It fits in there nicely, put it in there really tight. get the scissors and cut off the part of the bic pen lid that isn't stuck into the sharpie. 4. melt the black part of the sharpie and the bic pen lid together a little bit, just so the bic lid doesn't fall out all the time You probably want to melt a little hot glue or something in there too, so the ink can't get to where your stash is. Melting a tiny bit of plastic in there works too, anything that will seal it off. Now it just pops right back together like a regular sharpie pen. Take the lid off and it comes off really easily and you can still write with the pen. Wiggle the black part of the sharpie off again and you've got a nice, clean, smell-free stash spot for a J. Perfect for school and work, or anywhere.. I've never even been asked twice about my sharpie pen. Which ones have bud in them? ;-) College isn't so bad.
