I agree

Very clever use for those cases! (too bad I got rid of mine long ago...)

Great idea that I would never have thought of!

Now I have to find them ... they must be in one of these cardboard boxes ... (*)

Does anyone remember how many floppy disks you needed to install Windows 95?

LOL -- probably one?

I remember having a computer at an office I worked in that didn't even have a hard drive... in the day of the "original floppies." One slot for the program disk, one slot for a disk if you wanted to save a file. Rolling on the floor laughing

I'm such a pack rat! I recently threw them out. I believe it was 8 or 10. *Blush*
