Kitchen Medicine Cabinet

 

At our house we keep the majority of our medicines in an upper cabinet in the kitchen. We’ve done this ever since our children were really small, to keep them out of our children’s reach.  Almost two years ago when I first started blogging, it was one of the first things I organized and posted about.

Over time though, it had gotten back into a horrible mess.

 I wasn’t able to find anything quickly if my life depended on it, at this point.

So…. I completely emptied out the cabinet and sorted everything on my kitchen table, discarded expired medications and regrouped everything (Here is a link from the FDA on how to properly deal with unused medications).organize kitchen medicine cabinet, Kitchen Medicine Cabinet,

I bought a couple of turntables to use in the cabinet to more easily be able to see what I have on hand.
A couple of other very useful things to use when organizing, are baskets and a label maker!

Here is what the cabinet looked like when I was done (I hear angels singing)!

By the way, this cabinet that hold the medicines is an upper cabinet because you should keep medicines up out of the reach of small children.

I relocated the batteries and a few miscellaneous items that had made their way into the cabinet.

Now it’s tidy and organized once again. I know for my self that even my “organized” spaces need an overhaul maintenance now and then!  If you are interested in another kitchen organization post, here is my pantry redo:
