Recycled Prescription Bottles

Use empty prescription bottles to:

  • store cotton swabs for travel, the beach or pool
  • carry quarters for toll roads and laundromat
  • carry vitamins when you’re away from home
  • portion out high-calorie treats & keep them from being crushed in your purse

The ideas below are courtesy of pinkcollargal:

  • Mini-Sewing Kit: pins, needle, safety pins, buttons
  • carry Stevia tabs and/or other sugar substitutes in your purse
  • store vegetable and flower seeds

Need more than a prescription bottle?

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.

  1. Hi,
    I love your Irish Atic and I really like this one. I started using my vitamin bottles since I dan’t take any drugs. Any suggestions on the removal of the label and sticky residue left behind?

  2. Cooking oil is the perfect solution to remove sticky goo from a plastic surface. Remove as much of the sticker as possible and then saturate the residue with a bit of cooking oil. Let the oil soak down into the sticker and then immerse the plastic in water. The sticker should just wipe away. A second coating of oil may be necessary to completely remove the goo from the plastic surface
