Speedy origami!
I went to Taiwan for my summer holiday this year and my extended family there, keep a box of these stocked up under their coffee table in case they need to throw away something (like pips from grapes) and don't have anywhere to put it. Alternatively you could use them to store anything at short notice but they're great because you can make them out of any kind of paper, like a recycled calender or something - very eco-friendly!
