For those of you to cheap to pay a 1$ for an altoid container there is a new option.

AOL

Over the past year I've been recieving cds in a cd sized box with a magnetic clasp. Rough up the bottom of this box and glue in some foam and you have a nice box to ship swap flies in that you won't miss if it disappears. If you haven't seem them you can always stop by AOLs site and sign up for a free disk.

I've even seem them used as fly boxes.

I've been tossing those out, wishing I had a use for them -- now I do. Thanks!
