There are many challenges one has to face while starting a repair business which starts with finding a store and goes to making it a successful business.

Pill-Pots: Pill-Pot is a plastic dish which is divided into multiple compartments. It is usually used to store medicines like tablets and pills for the whole week. Most of the pill-pots come with re-sealable clip-shut compartments. Now you must be thinking how you can use these?

Usage: You can use a nail-polish remover to remove the M, T, W, T, F, and S tags from the back of compartments. Or you can simply stick different tags on the top of them. You can give different names to the compartments according to your will. Majority of people use following tags

B: Bottom Case Screws
