Your shot-taking days may be a distant memory, but there are probably still a few glass relics collecting dust in your cabinets. Even if tequila-shooting was never a hobby, it’s worth buying a few glasses for booze-free uses. Here are four of our favorites:

  

Display Flowers. A big bouquet is pretty, but you only really get to enjoy it in one room. Spread the love by breaking up a bouquet into shot glasses! That way, you can sprinkle the flower-love throughout your house, and bring some beauty into your bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, laundry room and wherever else tickles your fancy. Keep the love alive with these flower care tips, too!

Organize Q-Tips. We really love Q-tips! Who doesn’t? Not only do these amazing little guys clean your ears and turn make-up application into a cinch, they’re also handy for cleaning bathroom nooks. But if you’ve ever had a bag explode on you, you know they’re a pain to pick up. Avoid having a Q-tip carpet by organizing them in a shot glass! Place your glass in the bathroom, and you’ll have easy access to your favorite beauty tool.

  

Hold Tea Bags. If you’re a diehard Downton Abbey fan or simply enjoy a hot cup of chamomile every once in a while, you’ve probably run into the tea-bag dilemma. This is when you don’t want the bag in your cup anymore, but you don’t have a place to put it besides your table. Good news! Shot glasses are the perfect size for a used bag. Plus, it protects your bag so once you’re done enjoying your tea, you can reuse it around the house!

Store Accessories. It’s not easy to be beautiful – you need a lot of tools! If you don’t want your hair ties, bobby pins and rings scattered around your bathroom, wrangle them up with shot glasses. Decorative shot glasses look great and are the perfect size for organizing your beauty tools and knick-knacks.
