With this simple and affordable DIY, you can bring along a variety of snacks and keep them all separated in their compartments.

How to make your DIY snack tackle box

Packing your snacks in a tackle box doesn't only keep the car mess-free and organized for your road trip, but it's also super cost-effective. Creating them is easy and can be a fun activity for the whole family. Little ones will surely enjoy making custom snack selections for the road trip.

To get started, you'll need to purchase a tackle box; you can do one box per person or choose a larger one for everyone to share. Tackle boxes can be bought in most big box stores or outdoor supply stores like Bass Pro Shops or Cabela's. You can also easily find them online. Prices on Amazon start around $4.

Once you have your tackle boxes, give them a good wash and pull out your favorite snacks. You want to choose a variety of flavors with healthy options and treats. Small candies, nuts, dried fruits, cookies, and crackers make excellent choices. If you have a cooler in the car, you can make a gourmet snack box for adults with meats, cheeses, fruits, and olives.

Once you've selected your snacks, place them in each compartment. When you aren't chowing down, you can easily store the tackle snack boxes under the car seats so the vehicle stays free from clutter.
