3 Surprising Ways To Use Your Old Cassette Tapes
While most music is available to purchase online, you may wish to preserve a particular cassette’s sound. Thankfully, there are devices that will allow you to do just that.
Devices like the Reshow Cassette Player allow you to digitize the music and transfer the files onto your computer. You can also send your tapes to professionals to do it for you.
Cassettes and their cases have a unique aesthetic that makes for cool-looking crafts and decorations, such as using them as a pencil holder.
All you need is supplies like hot glue, some sort of canvas, and gloss finishing spray. Other uses include coasters or storage for smaller things you may have around, like buttons.
Sell Or Recycle
There may not be a huge market for old tapes, but some people still collect rare and high-quality ones. Sites such as eBay and Craigslist will help you find them.
Organizations like libraries will also take your old tapes. If all else fails, they can be recycled in an eco-friendly way at a waste management office or recycling center.
