Default Budget Ashtray

For many many years I left my stinky outside. It finally gave up on me. I almost ordered another but decided against it because rarely do I have anyone join me when smoking and I also wanted to change things up. I looked around at options for a bit and nothing jumped out at me.

So, I just happened to polish off a bottle of Blantons Bourbon and it dawned on me that the empty makes a perfect ashtray for single cigars. I don't even have to dump it, I just cork it when I finish using it.

Anyone else have any cool home made or free ashtrays?

The one I use the most is an old earthenware flower pot. Holds up to extreme heat, rain, wind, frost and holds a lot. What's not to like?

My dad buys them for me at garage sales. I have some vintage beauties thanks to him and he's never spent more than $3. I guess I'm spoiled.

That's cool. They are biodegradable and the birds love to use them as part of their nests. When we lived up north, birds would take the butts right out of my ashtray on the table on the patio.

I primarily smoke outside, so I have no need for a true ashtray, but I was looking at some so that I could have a place to put my cigar down - I often read while I smoke. I came across this cigar stabd that might do me well http://www.heartfeltindustries.com/p...l.asp?prod=HS1

If you smoke outside and don't truly need a place for the actual ash, this might be a good budget alternative. Mine is in the mail so I cant comment on quality, but perhaps others can?
