Hack Of The Day: CD Spindle Bagel Tote

I've long grappled with the pitfalls of bringing bagels to and fro. If you wrap them in foil, they get smushed every which way. Plastic sandwich containers crush them to half their original volume, which is unacceptable. But thankfully, someone hacked an item few people have use for anymore — a CD spindle — into the perfect carrying container for a bagel of any size or stature. CDs have never been cheaper, so buy a 50-pack — no, screw it, buy a 100-pack, discard the CDs and stack that bagel sandwich sky-high. Nothing's going to happen to it. Best of all, CD spindles are dishwasher-safe, in case your pleasure is a bagel with lox.
