As gamers we are notorious for saving every and any interesting little bit we find with plans on using them at a later date either as bits of scenery or additions to a miniature. Some perfect examples are Pringles cans for use as storage tanks or towers, electrical bits and bobs from broken VCRs/DVD Players to help fill out Sci-Fi scenery, etc... In the picture in my last post you will see some of the clutter from my many WIP projects. If you look close you will also see a prescription pill bottle. That is the primary reason for this post. While most people might look at it as a possible storage tank or similar terrain piece I have found a different use for it. I use them to hold old blades from my x-acto style hobby knives, brush cleaning tanks (I keep one in my Army Transport case along with a couple brushes that have had the handles cut down and some paint pots of basic colors such as Black, White, Gray, Brown, Red, Blue, etc... and some brush on sealer for quick on the go paint job repairs), mixing pots for paints (the lids of the bottles), and spare bits (Heads and Arms for the Wargames Factory Zombies, weapons, etc...) that can be used for quick figure repairs (granted they may not be painted until later, but if you say drop the figure and the head that you had to attach breaks off you have some extras that you can quickly glue on as a quick fix).
I have found using the prescription bottles for the old x-acto blades works real well, especially since you don't have to worry about them laying around on the desk where you can accidentally stab a finger or cut yourself when cleaning up. They also allow you to throw the blades away without worrying about them being lose in the trash where they could slice the bag open or work their way to the sides and cut someone who handles the trash bag.
I am sure theres other uses for the prescription bottles that I havent listed.
