SMT/SMD 0805 Resistor and Capacitor Book - 3725 pieces - Pro

I just bought this book of resistors and capacitors without realizing they were surface mount. Can the resistors / capacitors be used with a breadboard in any way? Adapted somehow? Or have I completely bought the wrong thing?

SMD parts aren’t breadboard-friendly on their own, but it isn’t a total loss.

You can solder 0805 parts between two pads on a piece of perfboard:

Then solder a couple of 1” pieces of wire to the pads. The wires will plug into the breadboard, and the perfboard will keep all the connections stable.
