I have crohns disease and have tons of pill bottles. I have been wondering the same thing! I was thinking of making a trash can out of them loosley inspired by this : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232043.0

I also took some of my pill bottles of a specific shape and covered them in clay and painted them like babuska dolls.

Their heads come off and you can hide things inside!
unfortunately, the clay I used cracked but it was still a fun recon.

If you take vitamins or medication daily, my mom has developed a wonderful system!  She soaks off or X's out the old labels of her pill bottles, sets up 30 of them on the table, and fills each one with her morning vitamins and meds (that just happens to be when she takes the most of them), then when she goes out or on vacation, she has them all ready for use!  She just grabs and goes!  She keeps one in her purse all the time for those occasions that just pop up and she isn't home to take them!!!  For large pill bottles, or any type of plastic bottle type from vitamins, etc., you could partially fill them with rice or beans, glue the lid shut, paint it a solid color, then drizzle paint of other colors all over it, and give it to the kids as maracas!!!  That would be more of a size for their hands!

God is good, all the time!

Decorate the bottle with whatever you would like. Fill with  the necessary sewing supplies which you would need in a pinch such as: needles, saftey pins, various colors of thread, buttons. Throw it in your bag and go.
'The bottles also make good containers for Hair pins, bands, barrettes.

I Like The Previous Ideas!

my grandfather believed the centennial (1967) quarters were worth something more than .25 - He collected them in his change and filled pill bottles with them ($10 worth) and gave one to each of his grandchildren. (I still have mine 30 years later meaning to do something with them as a tribute to him...maybe I should create a post too!)

My ultimate gifts to receive: Thread and Glue Sticks!
