Since rotary cutting tools are on sale at J's this week (40%off), and I didn't have any spare 45mm blades, I decided to stop and get a couple. They were just under $10 each (regular price). As I was waiting for batting to be cut, I noticed 5-packs in their lock-up case - 5 for $31. That's like getting two free!! So of course, I bought the multi-pack.
Here's my dilemma, though. When I bought them in the single pack, I had a convenient case to dispose of the used blade. Yes, I probably should have been recycling the case, but I'd rather have that blade, used though it was, in the trash with that protection around it. Now, having bought the 5-pack - what is the best way to dispose of used blades safely?
My tip for needles is to put them in a used medicine bottle, labled of course, adn toss that every now and again for a new empty one.
