Now that computers no longer use floppy discs is there any use for all the unused ones I have? I hate to throw anything away that can be used for something else. Coasters are the only thing coming to mind.

I use mine to back up what I do each day, such as pictures, cute email, information from a site, etc.
Then I can look at it again, and decide if I want to keep it, and burn to a CD. (01/25/2006)
I use them as backing for fridge magnetic hangers that I make myself. I stick a magnet to the back and I glue all kinds of things to the front, like photos or make pictures with left over scraps from my crafting. Or even a few small flowers. They make a good stable backing, easy to move around the refrigerator door. And when you feel like a change, either pull off the old decor and make a new one, or throw it away all together.

Make a floppy disk bag. Look at instructables.com (11/05/2007)
They are still useful if you have old backup disks lying around. My dad has so many disks and they still have useful stuff on them, but I could burn those things on a CD. Coasters might work. (09/07/2008)
