Don’t call us crazy just yet. We just finished a prescription, and as we were about to toss the container, we realized it was the perfect size for fitting a big tablespoon inside. That’s not always the case with spice jars (unless you’re using something like these). A bunch of these orange bottles might look kind of cool lined up in a modern kitchen…

There’s also the benefit of the bottles being tinted, which helps shield your spices from bright light.

Obviously, you’d have to go through a lot of prescriptions (of just the right size pills, too) to amass enough bottles for a collection. But if you like the look, we’re sure you could find these through a medical supply company. The ones below are from Medex Supply, but it’s not exactly clear to us how many bottles you get for the $87 price.
