Novel Uses For Empty CD/DVD Tubs/Packs?

You know those tubes, tubs, cakes, whatever you call them, holding new CDs/DVDs. They come in sizes with anything from 10 disks - 100disks.

Recycling the plastic is fine, however, does anyone have any novel uses for the empty containers?

eg, store your bagels in the large tubs. LOL

They make nice bug-capturing tools!

We had a fancy, art-y CD stand which my wife has turned into a a device that holds a variety of orchards that need to have air around their roots.

Most of the primary CDs are on my hard drive now. But, I did discover yesterday that I forgot to load Sgt. Pepper. How embarrassing.

I set mine up on target range in my back yard and shoot at them with a pellet gun...

Oh wait... that's the AOL disks...

It's the tubes the disks came in that I was wondering about. Thankfully, no more AOL disks in the mail.

I misread your question. I do that alot.

They only use I've ever found for them is to hold more CD's. If I don't have a case specifically for a certain CD, it goes in there. I used to do custom CD burning and a few people screwed me on payment so I have a lot of those.

You can't put cereal in them because of the little post in the middle. I mean it's annoying as hell.

You can't drink out of them, again, because of the post. It bumps your nose.

You can break the post off, but now you've compromised the integrity of the container and made it worthless for all intents and purposes. Who wants a hole? That's not a question.

You can smoke a good one, pour a little gas on it and light it up... The pyro-technics alone is worth the show...

I mean other than that. what CAN you really do with them?

You can glue them together to build a storage unit for your empty cd cases.

I use them for putting my spare change and receipts I need to keep in.
