New Life for VHS Cases

Chances are, if you’re still using VHS, you’ve also been living under a rock for at least the last ten years. Video cassettes and all their accoutrements are a thing of the past, but they’re not so easy to get rid of. Luckily, those hard, plasic VHS cases can be used for a variety of other uses. One company has cleverly used these old cases for organizing keys. Another blogger turned old VHS cases into cute boxes for storing all sorts of trinkets. Some people have even made purses from them!

I have found that a lot of the smaller items found in the MFTA warehouse can be organized into these cases. More pictures after the jump.
