Contact your local scout troops they will be more than happy to take them off of your hands. We do a lot of crafts with the old film canisters and now that everything is going digital it is hard to find film canisters.
Yeah, they're kind of like pistachio shells. Whatta ya do with them now that the contents are gone?
Mind you, I don't actually USE my containers for any of this stuff. I put any used strips that are floating around my meter kit into the empty container and toss it. But you COULD . . .
Small supply of glucose tabs
Pill or Vitamin case
Sewing needle case
Collect soil and insect samples
Portable ashtray (yech)
Paper clip dispenser
Water cup for water color brushes
Vaseline case (for runners who chafe)
I dunno, I'd not put anything that goes in my mouth or body into those containers. They have chemicals in them for preservation and so I'd be wary. I like the bugs and button ideas though! I just toss mine in the recycle bin.
oh i made that up. Heck my neighbor does not even have cats. Well come to think of it, I don't even have a flower bed. And just to make things clear, I could not hit the broad side of my neighbors house let alone a cat.
However if i had a flower bed and the neighbor had cats and i could hit them with my empty test strip bottles, then I would still not do it. I am to darn lazy to pick them up.
I like the idea of throwing them at the neighbors cats.....I think right now we throw them into the recycle bin. But I know that DD does not throw her used strips in the trash where ever she is when she is done, she collects them and they end up all over my house. Which is not good w/two small kids. Maybe you could use the old containers for that and when its full recycle them? Is that ok?
