Floppy disk boxes. Maybe not the first thing you think of if asked to mention something you couldn’t do without. They were, after all, specifically made to house something that was last seen hurtling towards obsolescence at high speeds: floppy disks.
While rummaging through one of my numerous drawers of old computer stuff, I found three of these boxes. I got them as packaging for 10 floppy disks way back when, so they’re not very big. Not a lot would fit in them.
Still, they’re made from hard plastic and reasonably sturdy, so just throwing them away would be a shame.
So, I extended my rummaging to the rest of my home, and found two good candidates for floppy disk box storage: Seed packets and spice packets. I don’t have a lot of any of these, but the ones I do have tend to float untidily around. Now they’re organized neatly in line, instead of cluttering the place up :-)
If I had a larger floppy disk box (the type with dividers) lying around, I could use it for organizing larger collections of packets, sorting them in categories and whatnot.
If you know about other ways of reusing old floppy disk boxes, please leave a comment!floppy disk boxes, floppy disks, storage
