You know how we inherit stuff. At the time we don't know what to do with it. We usually end up pitching it, donating it or putting it in a box in the basement for our children to deal with. Which is what we did with boxes of stuff when we lost relatives.
Recently I opened one of those boxes and it contained wallets, glass cases, pill boxes, and other stuff that was usually the contents of a lady's purse in the sixties, seventies and eighties.
At the time I was delving in the box my cell phone rang. When I hung it up I sat it down on my right , next to one of the glass cases. When I went to retrieve it I realized it would probably fit in it. Voila! it did, and it also fit in all but one of the cases.
Looking in the photo you can see I am very hard on cell phones (the outer case has long since bit the dust) and you see the protective clear shield is cracked and peeling off. I tried it on the phone and it slips neatly in my pocket, protecting it's contents.
The cell phone made a trash into a treasure, keeping it out of the dump. "recycle - re use"
