This is my first post ever, yay.  I'm a long time lurker but I thought that this was finally worth posting.

My friend Becky and I both had the problem of dealing with Cd/Dvd storage and these wimpy Cd cases that stored like only 30 cds (not to mention were also too pricey for what they were).  So we ordered a whole bunch of 4 disk, double sided cd pages on the interweb and decided to buy some binders.  We went to all these business supply places and couldn't find a single binder that would fit these pages (guess we should have looked into this first lol).  Anyway, while we were looking I spotted some binder clips and then the coggs started turning and we ended up collaborating on a pair of awesome cd binders that hold a whole bunch of cds and cost us next to nothing!  Here are some pics of mine.. didn't brake out the camera while becky was still here:

we measured cardboard and cut it out of beer boxes (yay recycling,yay free).. then we put this cardboard on the binder rings (these were like 2 bucks for like 9, so we had more than enough)

we cut out fabric and made a cover for the cardboard (kinda like book sox..if you know what those are)

Becky and I both used fabric recycled from something else... Becky used a brown dress that was too small for either of us and I used a fabric shower curtain that I had used to separate my room but had gotten holes in it. (yay free) Though you can't really tell in the pictures, its burgundy with black swiggles all over it... and a bit shimmery (hence the reflection of the flash in the pictures).

So yea... essentially this project cost the both of us a total of $1.
