Random Tips and Tricks

These are often not my idea, but I try to identify where they came from. It's just a collection of things I've grabbed from around the swirling universe.

Custom Boxes for Organization

From this update on Circuit Python, comes a neat trick from Scott:

Slim cardboard boxes on an IKEA Kallax

After seeing creative drawer inserts for the Ikea Kallax bookshelf, I realized I could get custom cardboard boxes to fit in each square. I found a custom box place with low minimum quantities and now have just over 20 boxes for around $40. 10 of the shallowest boxes can fit in a single square. A wood 10 drawer set is $140. I’ll be moving over to the boxes as I use dev boards (and dig them out of my packing.)

Not sure where he sourced the boxes from though. Just don't use ULine. Ever.
