On bike storage

I recently suffered a puncture whilst out, normally i stuff things that are of use in the back of my jersey. Wanting to put down a good time, i went out as light as i could to do a quick 15miler, never had issues on the roads before.
But I've stayed away from saddle bags just because of aesthetic aspects and blahbahblah, are there any alternatives to them?
Ive seen things called a cage rocket, and people stuffing things into an old water bottle and covering it with plastic and bodgin together whatever else.

Just wondering what other people do to get round this?
