Uses for Floppy Discs

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.

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)

I still have a camera that uses floppies to save pictures on. Even though there is no longer a floppy slot on the PC,s, For about $10 you can buy an external that hooks into your flash drive slot. I have been copying a lot of my old ones onto CD's.
