    Here are things that come to mind: small photo frame for fridge, use in purse for qtips, bandaids, antacids or other meds, ear plugs, earphones, sewing kit, legos for kids on the go, and probably so many more. Maybe tooth for Tooth Fairy. Ask a child to imagine uses for it. Add stickers to it, secret love notes to your children. Have fun!

      @Debbie Some of your suggestions are great but this case is only 2 inches by 1 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch thick so it's pretty flat and small. Pictures are a super idea. Thanks

    I like to carry extra hair pins , to put my hair up when its wind or hot & humid. Its a blessing when u have them and when I go swimming & don't want all my hair wet . I carry them in my swim bag with little elastics. Always glad I have them as my hair is thick. Think outside of the box and find your own need. I lost the back of an earring and took them out and put them in a container like this, now I never lose favorite earrings.

    Are they big enough to hold a business card? I see duct tape in their future!

    I use that exact case as a pill case for my purse. It takes up very little room, and you can see at a glance what mess u have with you.

    Not a good idea for pills, as they can get crush by the heavier stuff in purse and as these are a special dosage by your doc u wouldn't want to mess with that. Hard to figure out pieces to make up the proper dosage. They sell hard cases at dollartree for 1.25-3.00.Don't take the chance. Tylenol ,ok; but not meds; very dangerous.

    It would be great for stamps, rewards cards, individually wrapped wet wipes, paint chips, business cards or small coupons.
