Recycled

FYI -
IF anyone has, or remembers, the old 5 1/4" floppy disc's used in computers,
this is what I've done with the plastic boxes that I stored/organized them in.

The physical size is the same as a CD jewel case. Music, data storage, new
computer programs installed from a disc, mainly come on a CD. I store the
programs or music CD's in the old floppy disc organizers. Takes up less space
to store them this way. Also helps to keep them from getting scratched.

Best, also, to store each CD in a proper paper sleeve because the polycarbonate of the optical side of an adjacent disk can damage the lacquer side that protects the aluminium reflective layer. The paper takes up extremely little space, and should help extend the lifetime of the individual disks.
