It drives me crazy that I can not return my empty pill bottles from my one prescription a month. Obviously, one bottle per month doesn’t seem like a lot but the point is these are plastic and could be reused rather than making more. I have found a few ways to use my empty bottles I thought I would share with you.
This bottle I use when traveling. I fill it with baking soda which can be used to brush my teeth and wash my hair on extended trips. The cap fits tightly so I have no worries it will spill in my traveling bag, which is a reusable shopping bag.
This is just a sampling of my saved seeds awaiting planting in the spring garden. The only seeds I had too many of to use pill bottles were the watermelon and pumpkin seeds which are stored in peanut butter jars.
As I use coin-operated machines to do my laundry here at the apartment building I wanted a simple way to store the quarters. I found a single $10 roll of quarters fits perfectly in an average-sized pill bottle. No more fumbling around in a bowl for change to do a load of wash.
