"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Pill bottles aren't always the easiest to find in your purse, and the plastic can even be a bit slippery. If you're looking for a great way to alleviate this issue, follow this Knit Pill Bottle Cozy Pattern. This free knitting pattern works up quickly on double pointed needles to form a little case for your pill bottle. If you're a fan of color-coding, you can even knit a few pill bottle cozies for different prescriptions, but PLEASE NOTE to check the label too to be sure you know which medication is in which pill bottle cozy. The handy loop makes this pattern easy for attaching to a key ring or for holding in general. This is a great pattern to give someone to show you care.

This is a bad idea! Pill bottle labels should always be visible to prevent errors! This could help put someone in the ER!

Thank you so much for your comment. I bolded our note above to be sure to check the label inside the pill bottle cozy to make sure you know which medicine is inside. I hope that helps.
