We always have a lot of empty eyeglass cases around. I use them to carry my scissors, toe nail clippers, tweezers, etc. in my purse. I carry lipstick and other small items when traveling; like buttons, thread and needle just in case.

I was wondering what to do with some of my unused spectacle cases then came up with an idea to organize the bits and bobs I carry in my handbag (purse).

I like to put a velcro tab on those silky material eyeglass holders to make a phone case out of it for use in my purse. I bought a nine dollar Virgin Mobile phone at Walmart because it was a pretty color.

I like to crochet while traveling and I've found the perfect container for storing my many crochet hooks is in an empty eyeglass case. These cases fit perfectly inside my purse or my car's glove box.

A case that is no longer needed for a pair of glasses makes a good sewing kit to carry in your purse.

When I got my last pair of eye glasses I was given a hard shell case with them. As I wear my glasses all the time I didn't think I had a use for it. Voila!

I have lots of old eyeglass holders, which open and close. I used the old eyeglass holder to hold bandages and a tube of triple antibiotic. It takes up very little space and is always handy.

I'm recycling my old eye glass cases. This one, I have found, is just the right size for three pairs of my craft paper scissors. I can turn back the flap and sew on a soda can tab/ring to hang it up.

If you have an old eyeglass case, you can use it to slip on your belt and hold your cell phone in when you are out shopping or walking.
