    i was at a FTU, this old man had about 50 strung around His neck, quite a memory, I did take his picture,

    In the Midwest this time of year we use them for Ice Scrapers, also for Bug Scrapers when washing the car. Even for tar removal.

    Today I cut one up for a lost collar stay,

    Anyone else have any good uses,,,like beer cans they can have a double life...

    I am thinking about sharpening this Ritz Carlton card and making it a personal protection device.

    I have a few College rentals, seen several bars made out of beer cans, and had a few beer can chickens from the grill.

    I have a decent collection of credit cards, and most are held in bunches with rubber bands...

    I put a lot of felt pin marking on the back of the cards,

    A lot of them seem to get cut up, and end up in the trash..., but I would like to see some of them get a second life...

    You could start "wall-papering" a room with them?

    Otherwise... https://www.google.com.sg/search?q=...niv&sa=X&ei=qe-gVK8ihLWYBZPggbgL&ved=0CCUQsAQ

    But all of the Vanilla Reloads would make such a boring color scheme...

    Some people manage to sell them on e-bay (I suppose to collectors).

    NOTE: Don't do this with accounts still in use, where the number remains the same and only the expiration and secret number change. At one time, I believe e-bay had limitations on how recently a card had expired.

    Just ensure it is a good crosscut shredder. Do not want puzzle pieces :D

    I was thinking about making a framed collage of all my past credit cards but figured it would look pretty dumb. And besides, I have enough clutter in my life, to repeat what a previous poster stated!

    To tell the truth, we just cut the up and thrown them in the waste basket.

    I put rubber bands around mine, and only carry the ones I need to use, that day.

    I plan on slowing down this year,
