Cassette Tape Storage

5 years ago 7

I needed to get a drawer full of USB cables organized, so I headed to my local thrift store and got a whole bunch of casette tapes for .50 a piece.

Then my daughter thought they were actually movies and stole them all.

And then I very politely asked for them back.

Then I watched her try to put them in the DVD player for two hours.

That was awesome.

When she finally lost interest, (aka I intentionally left out a bag of leftover Valentine's candy), I gathered up the tapes and took them all out of the cases.

Except for this one.

I am going to have to find a cassette player because I am very interested in knowing what's it doing outside?

Here's my empty cases.

Here's my USB cable drawer.

This was after I narrowed the cables down to just the ones I needed.

All I did was just roll up the cables, and pop them right in.

Oh. My. Organization.

So much better, and look at how much more room I have!

See, this is why you should hoard things. You never know what crap you just might need down the road.

Yes, you can quote me on that.

Here's my nicely organized drawer in my desk:

Love it.

Here are more ideas for the lovely clear cases:

Earbud storage.

iPad or smart phone stand.

And lastly, if you clip off the inner plastic pieces...

A cassette tape case will store business cards very nicely.

If you have any more ideas send them my way.

Otherwise I will be forced to actually listen to all the tapes I purchased.

I can handle Debbie Gibson, but Huey Lewis and the News just might put me over the edge.
