Welcome back! Thanks for bearing with me during this long but productive series of organizing and decluttering our homes! Only 8 days left of challenges! I’m going to try to pick some areas for the last few days that aren’t necessarily rooms but places in our homes where clutter accumulates.
Today’s organizing and decluttering challenge is the medicine cabinet.
With 7 people in a house, it seems like we have a lot of medicine and supplies. All of this is stuffed into a cabinet (not the regular kind of medicine cabinet) and it is about impossible to find anything, let alone it’s taking up an entire cabinet. I’ve had it with the mess and today it’s getting a makeover!
Here’s my plan for organizing and decluttering our medicine and supplies:
- I am going to be dividing and sorting everything into like groups. For example, first aid supplies, pain medication, cold & sinus medication, allergies, rashes, digestive, breathing treatments, tools (thermometers, tweezers, etc).
- I know that we have some loose medication for our breathing treatments. I will gather all of those and put them in a small ziploc to keep them together.
- Then I will be checking expiration dates on all of the medications and supplies. If they are expired, please take the proper precautions of disposing your medications.
- I am planning on buying a few of the small clear totes with drawers like this one and also a few small clear totes like this for the supplies that need a larger space.
What is your favorite way to organize medicine?
Don’t forget, in case you have missed any days in this series, here they are! (Don’t worry you can jump in right where we are in the series and go back later if you want to catch up or just finish out what we’re working on with us! I’m so happy that you are joining us in organizing and decluttering your home!)
