empty prescription bottles
I'm wondering what suggestions people an give for how to re-use prescription bottles. They are one of the most useful little holders I've found. Here is what I've used them for so far: 1. To carry non-prescription medication (ie tyleol or advil) with me in my purse or emergency kit in the car. 2. Carry single serving tea with me to avoid costly drinks at restaraunts. (It keeps them fresh and tasty!) 3. Drill hole in bottom. Fill with soil. They can be used to sprout seeds in. (I've also used "tin cans" for this.) 4. Carry a small ammount of lotion, balm, or anything creamy like that for on-the-go. I learned this from my dad's cousin who made a wonderful healing balm from lamb's kidney fat and gave it to me in a used prescription bottle.) 5. Store small things like screws and cone incense; also simple earrings. 6. The right sized bottles can be used to count and store coins (such as quarters for laundry.) To count them, first count out a common ammount into the smallest pill container (or film canister) that they will fit into. (try however many goes in a normal roll) and mark the outside with a permanant marker or scratch to show where this height is. Then just fill to the line each time. 7. I use benefiber. This I carry with me in my purse in one of these containers so I can use on the go. 8. Store dice or small game pieces in them so you don't lose one of them. 9. The larger ones can be used to hold pens/paperclips/misc office suplies on one's desk, but so can used "tin cans."
