Aside from being purely useful for dispensing a product, the tube packaging design for 3M's Patch Plus Primer 4-in-1 serves as a handy home repair tool itself.

Like most products that adopt tube packaging systems, this one boasts a screw-off cap for dispensing the spackling compound with built-in primer for wall repair. Beyond this, the DIY-focused design also includes a putty knife at the point where the tube tapers and a sanding pad on the product's colored cap closure.

Beyond assessing the value of a product itself before making a purchasing decision, many cost-conscious consumers are also taking packaging into consideration, especially if a product comes in a form like this that saves them from having to invest in other purchases to support a particular project.
