Done that.

I used to notch the other edge of my 5-1/4" floppies to use the other side in the Apple Disk ][ drive.  Which mattered a lot when you were buying diskettes for $2 each on a teenager's income.

You even learned which brands to stay away from because of reliability.

Yeah, the single-sided diskettes weren't certified for double-sided use, but even so, some of the manufacturers still had the magnetic goop on there.  Verbatim & Maxell, I think were good.  When TDK said single-sided, they meant it. :-(
