Cheap and easy way to mount boards

Maybe this has been posted before, if so, sorry for the dupe...

Working on my icade->Retropie project and needed a cheap and easy way to mount the monitor driver boards. Went to the local Dollar tree to see if I could make something work and came across these command strip knockoffs - 9 for $1 and they work perfectly. I took off the command strip and just used hot glue instead. Cheap and easy.

Good Idea and thanks for sharing. I usually get some nylon washers from the hardware store and use screws. If really cheap and dont want to go to the store ill cut up a old BIC pen and use those as the spacers.
