Reuse old prescription bottles

I have a lot of old prescription bottles lying around, and I’ve come up with various uses for them.

They’re good for storing things, such as hairpins and tacks. I use the bottles for smaller food items, such as dried herbs. I store travel-sized shampoo and conditioner bottles in them while traveling so my luggage isn’t affected if there’s a leak. I also like to put earrings and other small jewelry items in them so the jewelry won’t get lost.

I’m sure old prescription bottles have many other uses that I just haven’t thought of yet!
