When spice bottles are empty, the plastic ones you get, wash them out with hot water and soap, remove labels and let air dry. When dry, you can store sewing pins, needles, buttons, small nails, tacks, anything small.

Great ideal. I use old prescription bottles to keep my sewing machine bobbins in. They fit perfect like coin in a roll. Helps keeps the thread from pulling off the bobbin.
They work great for the little seed beads too.
Also for saving seeds and then shake them directly into the garden.Just make sure they have dried first.And you can add sand to the jar with the seeds if they are very small, like Ca.Poppys.
I found another tip that compliments this one well! Instead of taking up prime real estate space in the kitchen cabinet, you can label the tops of the lids and store them in a drawer so that you can look down and read them. Frees up the cabinet space and you don't have to pull them all out just to find the one jar your searching for!
I like to use one of these jars for a mix of cinnamon and sugar to shake on toast. That way you always get the right amount. Cinnamon toast is a cheaper substitute for donuts... and a healthier one at that.
