Where are there sticks that cost nothing in any quantity?

OM are *far* cheaper than any sticks I ever got, especially on a size actually
needed and/or fitting basis, e.g. 670M for CD, 4G for DVD; and cheap enough to
use once and discard.

OM have room to write legibly on them what they contain

OM are uniform size and shape, much easier to catalog and inventory than
hundreds of different size and shape sticks.
