Instead of buying travel sized bottles of shampoo and other things, at our house we used old prescription medicine bottles. They ones with the kid proof lid from Walgreen's can hold liquids with out leaking. It saves a lot of money and helps the environment too. The best way to mark the bottle is to write what it in it on a paper label with a sharpie marker.

Never thought of that use but we do use them to keep matches dry for camping. Also, I use them to organize change in my car and have used them for small items like jewelry when traveling to keep them from being crushed in my suitcase.
