What to do with left over PVC trim

Any ideas what to do with 8, 6' long, 6" x 1/2" AZEK Deck's Rim Joist trim? They are rips from 12" pieces left over from a deck project. I hate to throw anything away but I don't have any idea what I would use them for and I am trying to make some room in the shop...

The stuff changes size with TEMP but is stable with HUMIDITY. I used some to make marking guides for common measurements.

It also makes good moisture-breaking feet for my wood shelves. Tar paper does too, but this elevates the wood feet away from the periodic puddling flood on the shop floor

The stuff is slippery. If you need to move something heavy two sticks with a layer of grease between is really really slick.

Rot-free edging for the garden or a raised bed.

If you don't find a use for it, you can drop it at a Habitat for Humanity outlet (Re-Store) if you have one in your area.

I keep a bunch of thin rips of it around for laying out curved work.

They make great shelves in the shower......

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

Great ideas. I especially like SteveEl's suggestion to move heavy stuff. Thanks... I will be keeping it.
