If you or a loved one has to take a lot of prescribed medication, it may be time to do more than just recycle them! Everyone knows that our landfill issues across America are becoming an even bigger problem. Don’t let your pill bottles pile up in a landfill, here are 10 ways to put them to good use!
Hide A Key
Hiding a key underneath your doormat is simply too obvious. Glue a rock to the top of a pill container, place your keys inside of the container. You’ll never be locked out again! Project from here.
Turn your pill bottles into a DIY Makeup organizer. Paint the containers and decorate them with ribbon. What a great way to keep your counter tops organized! (Mine need all of the help they can get!)
Piping Tip Organizers
The Bearfoot Baker deserves the credit for this awesome idea. Organize your piping tips inside an old pill bottle. You could even number the containers so you know where all of your piping tips are located.

Don’t spend extra money on those tiny bottles of shampoo. The Beauty Blog recommends using an old pill bottle as a shampoo container.
