Cute!

I mentioned on the Found Objects message thread that I picked up some cute little acorn caps while walking to the mailbox yesterday.

So guess what I put them in to save for one of those "someday" projects? Yes, another empty prescription container!

Clever and a good way to upcycle. By the way I loved the ATC's.

Last week one of the lids on my embossing powder bottles broke, so I quickly transferred the powder into a prescription container that I had on hand.

I also used another of the containers for a color mix of a few of the embossing powders for the ATCs that I made for the swap.

One of my prescription containers has been in purse carrying 24 almonds (1 ounce) this week, just enough for a healthy afternoon snack when I am away from home.

I use them for seeds and small safety pins. I also have some larger containers from Crystal Lite that I use for my crochet needles.

Back to the empty prescription drug containers -- I had to go out of state to take care of my elderly aunt last month. And guess what she had been saving for me?! Two plastic bags full of containers!
I think I need to find a kindergarten art class or something that needs them.

I know the school must really appreciate having you for the volunteer coordinator.
I have my friends save those boxtops coupons for my grandchildren's schools, too.

I'm the box top coordinator for our school. Which is lucky b/c I obsess about them. I find a way to insert Box Tops (said very quickly like it's one word) in nearly every conversation. Had a board member walk through my department and he even got the BoxTop lecture. emoticon

If you mean those Box Tops for Education, yes, I save those for my grandchildren for their schools.
Good idea to keep them in gum containers!

Edit: Oops! I see your answer under the A-Z topic where you listed the T for Tops!

I use gum containers to store my box tops. Does anyone else collect boxtops?

I keep saving them and saving them!
Right now I've separated the words alphabetically in my magnetic poetry collection, and I have the words in them.

They are also great for holding bobbi pins, little rubber bands for hair, and they make nice m&m containers after washed really well. Portion control made easy.

I've enjoyed reading all your ideas. I've just kept saving them and saving them, thinking that someday I'd put them to good use. Now I can!

I use them and 35mm film containers for all sorts of odds and ends, pins, change, extra buttons, sequins,my daughters barbie doll shoes! We also use those M& M mini containers in many of the same ways.
Always something to stick in them to have handy we also put matches in to keep them from getting wet for our emerency kits!

The regular size ones make great change holders, especially for quarters. They're good to fill for kid's gifts, or anyone needing change for laundromats, buses, pop-machines, etc. Decorate for a special gift with contact paper, collage, glue on seed beads, etc.

Fill 1/3 with dry rice or beans, tape two or more to a chopstick and the kids have maracas to shake.

Great for organizing beads, pins, sewing needles, buttons, etc.

They make great bobbers for fishing if you can put a bead of hot glue around the cap to make them not fill with water. Hot glue a loop from a metal twist tie so you can quickly attach to a fishing line. I use craft wire wrapped around the cap with loop, then when I hot glue it, the hot glue anchors it down.

Make emergency kits:
1. First Aid: BandAids, alcohol swab, gauze pad
2. Sunburn: Snack zip loc with a squirt of lotion, one with sunscreen, one with paper towel.
3. Handiwipes: paper towels moistened with water and rubbing alcohol. Put in zip loc if pill bottles leak.
4. Sewing kit
5. Trash: plastic trash bags, or plastic grocery bags.

You can cover some of them with polymer clay. Make some canes and slice them off and stick on. They make pretty little containers.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl
