I admit freely that I am a mock croc fanatic. There, I said it. All of my purse items match. Wallet, lighter, planner, kindle cover, etc. So, when I had to begin keeping my testing equipment with me, I found a wonderful container for it.
The only problem was the round test strip containers wouldn't let it close without a big bulge. So I transferred them to an empty Tic Tac box. Now everything inside is sterile, fits perfect and is with me when I need it.

How can I reuse a Tic Tac container?

Store small things like paper clips buttons etc. You can also use them to take a few days of a prescription on a trip. They will fit in your purse. You can roll thread around a folded piece of paper and carry a needle and a few buttons for and emergency sewing kit.
I bought one of those"eye glasses"repair kit at Dollar General.It has different size tiny screws, extra nose pads etc. Everything fits great and secure.
My mom loves those for storing tiny beads and safety pins, etc.
Using it for meds is ok, just as along they aren't narcotics. Narcotics must be stored in the container from the pharmacy. I was doing this too and should've known better (I'm a nurse) so I called my sheriff's dept. and they gave me the scoop.
You can fill them with dried seeds and tiny trinkets for a find it game. You can even add water, food dye, glitter, sand and small beads for an aquarium.
They make great spice containers for camping. I filled mine with my favorite spices, stuck a label on them and keep them all in a plastic recipe box for easy access.
I use them for mu favorite spices for camping. I just fill them with my favorite spices, print up a label for each one and store them all neatly in my plastic recipe box.
Does anyone have any Tic Tac containers they want to sell?

I have quite a few I am using to store ribbons - but will be glad to ship you as many as I can. All you have to do is pay the postage - not sure how that would work!
