Don’t Throw Away An Empty Perfume Bottle

On most days, I keep my hair in a pony tail and whenever I take a quick shower at night, I leave my hair tie anywhere there’s empty space.

Recently, I seem to be consistently putting my hair tie in one place–on my perfume bottle.

I don’t usually buy and wear perfume but I couldn’t keep people from buying me a bottle as a gift. Recently, I placed one of my perfumes near the sink so I don’t forget to use it. Before I knew it, the bottle became a hair tie holder.

I fnally found a use for gorgeous empty bottles that I usually just throw away. I’ve never been much of a packrat. But everytime I throw away a pretty bottle, I feel like a little-pretty-bottle-factory-elf dies.

I figured I can use anything cone-shaped or any container with a bottleneck as a holder. And aside from hair ties, I can also hold bracelets, bangles, and large hoop earrings with it (funny coz I don’t have any of those).

  1. cool, great use with empty perfume bottles. But I usually only have wider ones. will definitely make use of rounded perfume bottles if ever buy one in the future. ^_^

  2. Yes! They are works of art. That's why it's hard to throw them away, and you can't put anything else in it coz they seal it pretty well.

  3. Hey, that's a great idea! My hair ties are on our bedpost, bathroom doorknob and this little basket where they're really supposed to be at. I think I'll do the perfume bottle technique once we put up our bathroom shelf :)

  4. My hair ties are in a little basket. :) I have a TON of them, but I usually use one particular hair tie until it breaks. They usually last me at least 2 months–surprising!! I bought them for only 20 in an eastwood bazaar… 7-10 pieces ata. And they are lasting me longer than my goody ones are. So disappointing.

What do you think?
