I think we all do.  I used to store silica gel packets in them for diving 
trips.  I put one in the housing, and one in a bag with a couple rolls of 
film.  Worked great.

I think the plastic ones are probably water tight also, especially those 
semi-clear ones made by companies other than Kodak.  Just as a matter of 
interest, our primary photo store saves those for folks like us who like 
the little critters since we can see what's inside.

In the olden days, there was a rumor that if you didn't put film rolls 
(35mm and roll film) inside another container, they could be exposed on the 
edges and/or ends by sunlight.  I think that was true then.
