Catch-all for Drilling in Walls

This is my first attempt at loading an idea to Instructables.  Please be gentle with me!

Believe it or not I've been using this bin for over thirty years, and it's still not worn out!

All you need is:

An empty ice-cream container
Strong scissors or craft knife
Wide masking tape

It stops the dust from falling on furniture or polished floors and doubles up as a place to put the wall-plugs and screws ready to put in the wall.  In fact you can stick it anywhere that you need to have small items to hand when you're working.
