Well, I got those free button batteries last week. Still have no clue what they fit in.

Lucky you! I'm still working on it.

Actually still have some, we emptied the last container into the cocoa bin a couple months ago.

You never know. I got a couple of cheap cutting knives for free a few years back and they had just been sitting in a box when all of a sudden we were forced to make pesach with limited access to buying new utensils....

A while back people bought oars.  Even though they didn't have canoes.

My key fob takes those. Yours may also.

lemon squeezers, anyone?
Lol got a few of those (along with some digital credits..I think...) and ended up throwing it out... should’ve kept it for corona as we were drinking tea with lemon juice...
