Recycling is the environmentally conscious thing to do. But my wife thinks they're cute, so I keep 'em for historicity's sake.

I saved one for a long time with the intent to use it to store small screws in, but then made the mistake of smelling it after it sat. I just toss 'em.

If I harvest yeast I store it in them after sanitizing the hell out of them

I'm saving up for the 60 vial sweatshirt, but I'll probably give in at 15 for the glassware.

Ooh I was going saving them for yeast harvesting/storage, but I didn't know I could get free stuff out of them. WIN!
