My husband uses a lot of re-writable cds to save files from the computer and/or download photos, music, etc.

The top of the stack is usually a blank plastic cd-shaped piece of plastic.  I used it to make a template to copy a pattern onto my fabric for a border pattern.  I marked the cd at about the half-way point with a straight line and then held that against the seam on one side and traced it with a marking pencil.  Then I went to the outside edge and marked the other straight line on the cd blank  and traced going the opposite direction to make a () - shaped pattern and then kept tracing it all the way down the edge of the quilt making a continuous pattern.  Then I just sewed along that marked line.  It turned out beautifully!

i used to nab whatever size arc i needed from the kitchen,  plates, cups, lids, etc.   i finally found a nifty set of circular templates that has about a dozen different sizes.  i love it.

Those clear CD protector things are also great yo-yo templates.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
