At long last, the long (so long) winter is over and spring is here — with summer hot on its tail.

I don’t know about you, but cold and flu season left me with a bunch of empty pill bottles from various prescriptions written to ease my sniffles and sneezes.

But what’s a crafty girl to do with all those excess bottles? I’ve got nine ideas, and they’re just what the doctor ordered for handy hacks for making easy summer livin’ even easier.

In this episode of Good As New, I’ll demonstrate how to repurpose empty pill bottles into a variety of easy DIY projects including a mini survival kit, mini fire starter kit, and mini waterproof matchbox strike to tote along on all your summer camping adventures; a little key hider to let your dog walker in while you’re on vacation; a waterproof wallet to keep your Benjamins from getting soggy while you’re riding the log flume on your waterpark vacay, a quarter keeper to pay the tolls as you embark on long summer road trips; and more!

The best part is, you’ve already got the main supply — and the rest of the items necessary for these projects are likely already stashed in junk drawers around your house.

Check out the video below for step-by-step instructions for all the projects, and subscribe to Good As New on Facebook to keep up with all my latest eco-friendly crafts!
