    I go through a lot of blades and they usually end up on the floor(I found out the hard way), so I just made a quick little sharps container.
    You'll need:
    2 dixie cups (you can substitute)
    scotch tape (you can also substitute)
    hobby knife (or box cutter)
    Tape the cups together at the widest part,you can use more than one layer of cups if needed.Then, cut out a hole on the side and/or top to drop whatever sharp things you have in,and throw it in the trash when you fill it with blades.Also this will prevent the bags from being cut open when you take them out with sharp stuff in them.

    I don't have a picture but I've been using empty pill containers to store used blades.

    I use the child proof lids with a slot cut in it. Safe and sure way to dispose of used blades.

    Me too CharlieB................cut the slot in the bottom, tape the top on and filler up!:grin:

    Having to take so many meds the older you get, seems like they are always laying around waiting to be used!
