12 Ways To Reuse An Old Pill Bottle

Diply 4 Nov 2016

Pill bottles are something that I don't often think about, but there are so many things that you can do with these tiny canisters. We don't see too many of these around my home, maybe the odd time my husband or I get sick and have to go on antibiotics, but other than that, we are a pill-free house. Not that I am wishing illness on my family or anything, but after compiling this list, I want to get my hands on some empty pill bottles. Looks like I am going to have to start canvassing my grandma for her empty pill bottles.

Take a look at these 12 ideas that use empty pill bottles, and let me know if this is enough to have you saving pill bottles.

1. Instead of bringing an entire bottle of shampoo when you travel, just bring what you need.
