    stuff in your office like paper clips, thumbtacks, or crafty supplies, sequins,buttons, straight pins ,needles. I am sure there is more stuff you could use them for. Also, put wallpaper or material on them with glue to make them pretty. Good luck !

    I use them for travel. Q-tips fit perfectly in there, as well as shampoo and all my vitamins.

    recycling - most pharmacies now have medication recycling programs if you are just wanting to dispose of bottles or unused medications.

    Are they "bottles" as in glass or the plastic containers that prescription pills come in? Either way, if your area has pick-up of recyclables separate from garbage pick-up, just wash off the labels and put in your recycle bin. If your area doesn't have a recycling pick-up, check with your municipality or county to see if there is a central recycling processing center where you can take recyclables. Some pharmacies also act as a recycling collection point for prescription containers, call around to local pharmacies and ask if they offer such a program.

    I use them to put my spare change into so when going through a drive-thru food place I can access it quickly. It also works well to have a few paper bills at the ready, too. Some people use them to transport a small amount of mustard, ketchup, or salad dressing in a packed lunch. Also works well for bobby pins, if you use them. A tube of lipstick might also fit into one so, if left in the car and melts a bit it doesn't make a big mess. Would also hold a small amount of hand lotion or such as that for use in your car or purse. They seal so well, you don't have to worry.
    Also, I believe I saw one crafter placed a spare house key in it and glued a rock on the top and placed at a specific place near their door. It blended right in with some rocks near the door. Better than leaving a key under the doormat! :)
