I'm in the process of moving, and I decided to organize my craft supplied before bringing them over to the new place.  As I'm going through everything, I start to get annoyed by my string.  It's tangled and I don't want to cut them apart and waste string, and I just don't know what to do with all of it!  I also had a bunch of mini liquor bottle lying around.  Suddenly, inspiration hit!  What if I took all of my string and put it in the liquor bottles!  But wait... how would I get them out afterwards?  So what I did was glue little metal circles on the inside of the lids (I can't remember what they're called right now... they're for pendants and such).  Then I looped the string through the circle, so that when I open the bottle, the string is attached.

Sorry for the oddness of this post.  I'm kinda tired and out of it.

What an unusual and ingenious solution, thank you.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
