10 Super Creative Ways You Never Thought To Reuse Pill Bottles

August 1st, 2018

So many of us have empty or almost empty pill bottles in our homes. And that’s not including the bottles filled with expired medication.

But instead of letting those pill bottles pile up, what if you could reuse them? Well, you can! There are lots of ways to reuse old pill bottles. Just make sure you properly dispose of your medication first.

Here Are 10 Ways To Reuse Pill Bottles In Your Home:

1) Hide A Key

This one is genius! Glue a rock or pine cone to the top of your pill bottle. Open the key and place your bottle inside. Push it into the ground outside or in between other rocks so that it just looks like a rock in the dirt. You’ll know it’s your spare key and no one else will.

Tangling up your earbuds can cause them damage. That can happen if you don’t wrap them neatly. Wrap them up neatly and place them inside an old pill bottle to prevent them from tangling.

3) Portable Sewing Kit

Pill bottles are great for making portable sewing kits. Just pop in a needle, some thread, safety pins, straight pins and some buttons. You can even stuff a piece of cloth with some cotton and glue it to the top of your cap to create a pin cushion. You can keep one in your purse or car.

7) Travel Size Container

Don’t go buying trial size items of things. Instead just place your moisturizer, shampoo, and conditioner inside a pill bottle. They are the perfect trial size containers.

9) Waterproof Match Set

It’s important to keep your matches dry when you’re going camping or are going to be outdoors. Place your matchsticks inside a container and tape a strike strip to the inside of the cap. You can also keep a loose piece of strike strip inside the container and just take it out when you need it.

If you’re going kayaking or are going to be near water, make a waterproof wallet. Just place your money inside a pill bottle and tie a string to the cap so you can wear it around your neck or wrist for safe keeping. Make sure you seal the hole where the string goes with some hot glue or something else to make it waterproof.
