Whatever object you use, you may want to coat it a time or two with a water-proof epoxy, and/or put a tarp in it:

Heavy Duty tarp (better at holding water than cheap blue tarps)

Paint & seal almost anything & turn it into a pool with this:

You may also want to buy a pump/filter from Walmart, Academy Sports, etc.

These options may not be more practical or less expensive than traditional pools from the store…but if you or someone you know already has one of these items and some free time on your hands, you could be swimming in no time! 🙂

What do you use to carry your paleo lunch to work in?

If you are taking steps to become healthier and eat natural foods, you shouldn’t store them in containers that have BPA, lead, and other toxins. There are some reports that show lead is in some soft-sided lunch boxes.

Two alternate methods to store/carry your food throughout your day are lead-free glass containers and (high/medical grade polished)stainless steel containers. There are smaller ones for children and light eaters, as well as larger ones for adults and people who need more food. Here are just a few:
