What to do with all those empty pill bottles

Since everyone in our house takes prescription medications, we end up with a lot of empty pill bottles! I take off the labels and just can’t throw all of them away. So I decided to share a few ideas for using empty pill bottles.

• Store your jewelry. Easy to keep separate and super easy to travel with.
• Store broken jewelry so all the pieces stay together until you can repair it.
• Store small amounts of candy for kids to carry around and feel like they have a “whole package”.
• Store needles so they don’t poke you. They go easily into any project carrying container.
• Create a small sewing kit to keep at work or school.
• Store coins so they don’t fall out into your purse and get lost.
• Store hair pins. Easy to find and use.
• Use them for a portable “sharps” container if you have diabetes.
• Quick rattle for a baby.
• Make great collection containers for children who like to collect things.

Since the sizes of the pill containers vary, there are so many things you can do with them!

If you need a few- I will share some.  Just ask!
