This Old Pill Bottle May Look Like Trash, But It Could Save Your Life

My mother’s very favorite saying is, “You never know!”

She applies it to everything: a roll of toilet paper in the back of the car, an extra pair of shoes in her purse, a fire extinguisher in every room of the house — there’s no end to her “you never know” mentality.

Because I never listened as a kid, I often had to learn the hard way that, well, moms are usually right. You really do never know, and you’ll often wish you’d been more prepared.

That’s why, when I saw this amazing project, I instantly thought of my mom. This is the exact thing she would love and insist I carry everywhere.

Today, we’ll be making the perfect pocket-sized survival kit. You’ll be glad you kept all those old pill bottles, because “you never know” when you might need these life-saving essentials. The cherry on top? Most of these supplies are very cheap, or even given away for free! For little to no money or effort, you’ll be ready for any situation.

Remove the label of your medicine bottle, then clean it out really well. Begin to assemble the following items.

1. Emergency lighting. A two inch flashlight will fit perfectly in a pill bottle. If you experience a power outage, or you run out of gas in the middle of no where, you’ll be glad to have some light.

2. Matches. In case you need to light a candle or start a fire, you’ll be prepared.

3. Strike strip. With some super glue, attach a strike strip to the inside of the bottle’s lid. This way, you’ll have a convenient place to strike your matches.

4. Miniature lighter. This is a good back-up in case your matches get wet, or you need additional lighting.

5. A piece of candy. If you’re on a long hike or stranded somewhere, your blood sugar may begin to dip, which is especially dangerous for diabetics. One piece of candy may save your life!
