The company I work for received a pallet of fifteen new laptops earlier this week. Of course we're all excited about the new hardware, but my mind instantly went somewhere else.
After the boxes were emptied, I used a razor blade to cut off the top of each box, in essence creating fifteen "trays."
When I got home, I was able to get 24 cans in one of the trays. Perfect! Just what my mind's eye had seen. I now have an organized way to store 360 more cans. And since the shelves I built in the basement earlier this year still have some empty spaces, these will fit nicely.
As a collector, you're obviously always on the lookout for the thing you collect. But when storage options and space become concerns, you also watch for other things that can benefit the collection.
