  • Sadder by the day!

    Used the last dishwasher tablet and was on my way to the recycling bin with the box, when it crossed my mind that said box was somewhere in the region of the right size for putting 45s in. I've got loads of "proper" 45 boxes, but they are all full, and the "ins" are creeping across the carpet at an alarming rate. Came up with this while having breakfast!

    Perfect! Just need some sticky backed plastic and we're away

    Anyone else got any cheapskate solutions they would be willing to share?

                  You can't count yourself as a true record collector in the depth of addiction until you have sold the dishwasher, the wicker basket I can see in the corner and all your crockery to fund your insane record buying needs
                  Until that time you are only a hobbyist
                  Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to cash converters to see what they'll give me for this laptop

                    If you get A4 paper by the box, the box is a nice size for 45s. You can score it and fold the sides in for extra stability and cut the front at an angle for easy access. If you ever get the time you can then cover them or paint them to get rid of the "April fine paper" nonsense. I've got other boxes that I made out of millboard, and covered with cloth. I must have been unemployed and without kids when I had the time to do things like that.

                            Please to explain? Genuinely curious.
                            Especially if it's a similar revelation to WD-40 being fish oil.*

                              Well the A4 paper boxes actually come with a lid so, if you just cut them down to 7" height, you have a handy lid for the top and you can then stack them. You could also cut slots in the end for carrying purposes. However, for carrying porpoises they'd be useless- much too small.
