Ever wondered what you should do with these orange tubes of medicine once you no longer need to get any refills? My sister decided to use one of these to carry her coins, a very simple and practical idea. You can also use these tubes to holds other small items like safety pins, buttons, and paper clips. You can line them up on your desk or at home just as they are, although that could make you look as though you’re overly dependent on medication. Try peeling off the labels instead or covering them up with strips of paper from old magazines or newspapers.
