I was gifted a large bag of local grown English walnuts a while back, and I made such a mess when cracking the first quart jar of nut meats, that I had put off finishing the job. I like to sit on the couch and work while watching a movie, and I wound up with bits of shell all over the couch and the floor when I was done.

This morning, I figured out a hack for that! A large, empty envelope box fit nicely on my lap, held the nut cracker and the jar, and collected the shells! Easy clean up, and I have 3/4 of another jar of nut meats for my baking next week!
