Lex has a question:
Where I live, prescription medication pill bottles cannot be recycled or refilled by a pharmacist. You are supposed to just throw them out — is that true everywhere?
I am trying to reduce how much goes in the garbage, so I am looking for some ideas to reuse them. I have already found a few alternate uses – storing small craft supplies like beads, as well as keeping one in my purse filled with over the counter antacids — but I feel like some Homies might have some other ideas.
I have seen them used in art pieces, but I am looking for something quasi-practical if possible. I don’t want to hoard them, but I feel bad just tossing them. Ideas?
Ooh, good question fodder, Lex! I use old prescription bottles for two things:
- I’m awful about keeping change with me for parking meters, so I’ve taken to keeping a bottle filled with quarters in my bag. Compact, easy to get to in a full bag, and I always have change.
- Keep a couple old bottles in your bathroom so you can fill them with small amounts of shampoo when you travel. Instant mini-shampoos!
Homies, what you got? What are your bright new purposes for old prescription bottles?
