Here Now With Pictures: Repurposing as Earphone Case: Infinity Power disc holder for $1.45 [used]

As promised on Monday, it has just arrived! I tried a few items and took some quick pictures. It is the Infinity Power disc holder on sale in new condition for $2.50 at Amazon by Amazon actual (free shipping for Prime members) or in “Used – Like New” condition for $1.45 with free shipping for Prime members (or with a $35+) by Amazon Warehouse Deals. Updated 2/26/17…

Things to consider

+ this is not a hard shell case. The ring wiring of the lid up top and at the bottom is solid but the main body is soft. So this will protect from dust and dirt and such and minor impact, but not from hard impact
+ there is no padding inside, other than the material it is made of
+ the zipper has a thick plastic pull tab making it easier to use
+ also has a built-in clasp hook on the back
+ the bottom (on the outside) says Star Wars in big white print

Repurposing as Earphone Case: Disney Infinity Power disc holder for $2.49

I haven’t tried this particular item, I am only going by the pictures and product description, but this could be repurposed as an earphone case (or accessory holder), it is a Disney Infinity Power Disc holder (holds up to 12 discs) with a zipper up top. It is currently on sale for $2.49 each, with free shipping for Prime members (not an Add-On item *fingers crossed*) at Amazon by Amazon actual with a limit of up to three units per customer. The product description states “3.1 x 3.1 x 2.5 inches” as dimensions. I don’t know if these are external or internal.

The first of the customer reviews has a couple of pictures that give you a better sense of size/shape.

I just bought one to test it, but it won’t get here until at some point on Wednesday, the sale may be over by then.

PS: you can also get in “Used – Like New” condition for $1.43 with free shipping for Prime members (or with a $49+) by Amazon Warehouse Deals.

Thrifty Ideas: Back to School Doorbusters as Earphone Cases

And now something different, at the intersection of fun, funny and practical 🙂 We are in back to school season, and some of the doorbusters and coupon specials or clearance items you may find at some of the big chain stores (from Staples to Office Depot-Max to Target to Walmart to Big Lots to drug store and grocery chains and all in-between) can actually be re-purposed as earphones cases, and in the case of folding portable on-ears, as headphone cases too 🙂
