Plastic Pill bottles for storing...what?
« on: April 02, 2014, 01:35 PM »
My wife's elderly parents used to live with us, so I have a WHOLE Bunch ( read that metric buttload) of plastic pill bottles that could be used for storage - but for what? I wrought of drill bits, but I don't need or want them for that. Scroll saw blades for my Hegner, maybe. But what else?

They are semi-transparent so you can easily see what's inside them. And they are waterproof and of course dust proof.

C'mon brains - what I can I do with these other than recycle them?

I just recycle the prescription bottles, but continue to use old Fuji film canisters that are clear plastic and don't have child-proof tops.  They're great for really small computer and camera screws and nuts.  The older all-black or gray/black Kodak canisters are great for storing parking meter cash cash inconspicuously in the vehicles.
