Introduction:Altoids tin boxes organize a whole lot more than the mints they were graciously meant to carry; take a look.
The Altoids smalls or strips tin can-can be used to protect and store camera discs contently in one tin box. Discs such as SanDisk Ultra II and Lexar 2,4 or eight GB. Any decent photographer discerns how quickly those discs fill up and regularly have to be changed; in fact usually just as you are about to take that amazingly perfect scenic shot! Rather than frantically rummaging through your camera bag hoping to find a disc with free space, why not categorize them orderly in a little Altoids Smalls Tin Box. Use a Sharpie Ink Pen and write what each box contains, this too will help keep those photos well protected. Strips tin will protect two discs while the small size can hold up to ten discs.
Nintendo DS, cleverly develops accessories for the Nintendo DS Games. Kids can become excited about acquiring all these little doodads that will helps organize their games. Parents might have originally imagined, the persistent nagging for the Nintendo DS and a few game pieces would have been the end of it-oh No! Not by a long shot. Tell you what, go fetch yourself a tin box of Altoids for that grueling day at the office when the meeting calls for a breath mint, and save the box for the Nintendo DS hounds-- excuse me. "kids", who are consumed by the DS games at home! When they realize this is what they get, they will come to appreciate em, come running for a big hug and say, "Where is the Altoids tin boxes?" Not only will you be "hero of the day", notice the sounds of extra change in your pocket? AND you have done a small part for a greener environment. That's a triple win score! The regular size tin box, easily holds up to eight DS games.
A camera battery runs low after about two hours. The regular size Altoids Tin can easily hold up to four battery packs in one regular Altoids mint box. Canon's power shot compact digital battery packs are a little larger, yet still you can fit two battery packs nicely in the regular size Altoids tin box.
Organise and keep your sewing, craft, or workspace topnotch. Paper clips, pins, and rubber bands now have a new bed in the office drawer. Any crafty individual, who likes to sew, can organize sewing needles, stick pins, buttons or anything a crafty imagination needs using Altoids mint boxes.

Back for another H5.
I never thought about using them to hold my DS games. Great idea!
Great ideas! SD cards are so easy to misplace...this will help a lot.
Great for making craft projects too. I'm a stamper and these are great for gift ideas.
I love the simple and practical. Thanks!
Great way to recycle altoids tins. I've often wondered what to do with those little things. Great ideas. I'm thinking I could even use them for a portable tin for very small dog bones.
That is what I thought. While there are many containers that can be re-used, these tins are perfect for keeping important media such a digital photographs safe and sound. Thanks ElaineChastain.
