Week 23 of the Weekly Organization Challenge

This is week 23 of The Good Wife's Weekly Organization Challenge! This week focused on the medicine cabinet.

Currently we keep most of our medicines in the kitchen. We keep the most used - cough syrup, allergy meds, heartburn meds - in the cabinet with the drinking glasses. We keep the other meds in the kiddo cabinet.

Even though this area is grouped in with bathroom organization, you aren't supposed to store medicine in the bathroom since steam will break them down. I chose to store them in the kitchen since it is the most popular room in the house. I keep the medicines in a basket on the top shelf so no littles can get to them.

We don't tend to get sick all that much but The Good Husband seems to get hit with allergies often and one cold per winter. So we have mostly cold and allergy meds in the medicine basket. I like to group the meds together, so in this case allergy meds in the back, cold meds in the front.

If we were sick more often or had more people in the house that needed more meds, a simple way to keep them organized would be to have separate baskets for each type of meds - allergy, cold and flu, tummy issues - with labels on the front to identify them.

Organize along with me in The Good Wife's Weekly Organization Challenges
