    While out at antique shops looking for straights I picked up an old coin bank for a buck. I then super glued the top on and that is where all my used de, se and hair shaper blades go. I don't use them to often so the bank should last me awhile.

    I put mine in a used shaving cream tub. It's nice because it's thick and has a threaded lid. Should take a few years to fill it up.

    Wrap the used blade back up and slot it into the bottom of the pack of blades -- isn't that why there's a slot at the bottom of the pack as well as the top, where you push them out?

    Throw the pack away when it's finished.

    I have a small container made for this that I bought at Classicshaving. They are small, but can take a lot of blades.

    I do a lot of gardening (we just bought a bunch of land) so this is a fantastic idea. Thanks!

    I have a blade bank but when I travel, out of consideration for the cleaning staff, I simply use an empty pop or water bottle. Cut a slit at the neck and slip the blade into the bottle.
