What are some uses for that empty plastic cylinder that CD-Rs come in? What do you do with it after you've used the 50 or 100 CD-Rs, other than recycle it?

its the best storage of the older cds you stack 50 or 100 of them in it

Isn't that harmful to the CDs? They could scratch against each other. Also, it isn't convenient to access the CDs on the bottom of the pile.

No it doesn't scratch the CDs, that's where they came from to begin with. It is the safest place to put CDs that no longer have cases or the ones that come in those CD envelopes.

I use some to keep screw nails and assorted items after sawing of the spindle and turn them upside down!

Give them to the children to play or if you don't have any, then the local pre-school or kindergarten could probably find a use for them when the children do crafty type things.

You could use it as a paper towel dispenser, a hamster wheel, a bagel server, a tent stake, or possibly even a CD holder...
