If I knew how to make pictures of dark closet interiors, cabinet interiors, and drawers look good, well, that would be awesome. As it is, you’ll just have to picture that in real life, these buckets don’t look so grainy and dark. The following shows how I organize our medicine and vitamins. I keep everything on a high shelf in the pantry.
I decided to get our medicine and vitamins organized for two reasons. I used to have one bucket and it was so stuffed full, that I couldn’t easily see what was inside. Not having a good vision of what I already owned led to waste. The second reason is my husband could not find anything when he needed it or was trying to find something for the kids. Yeah, it was that bad. The only thing going for us was already having all the medicine and vitamins in one place.
I think this organization strategy is pretty obvious from the picture. I divided up what I had and put it in separate buckets. I slapped on a label to make it obvious. Now it is so easy to find everything!
We take vitamins every day and we’ve been very healthy this past fall and winter! (I wrote about taking vitamins here.) I keep our daily vitamins on the counter by the bar where we serve breakfast. It is part of our morning routine to load everyone up on their vitamins.
Do you check your medicines and vitamins for expiration dates? Put that on your calendar now to do every spring and fall. A few times a year of checking expiration dates and tidying up the buckets is all it will take to keep this area clean and organized.
Simple. Just the way I like it.
And speaking of medicine, our poor 6 week old baby is really struggling with reflux. Sleep seems like an unattainable dream right now. I can’t remember fully what it feels like, but sleeping is good, right? :)
