About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Cleaning out the Medicine Cabinet

I hope I'm not the only one out there with a very disorganized medicine cabinet.  You open the cabinet to find some medicine and bottles fall out, everything is everywhere so you can't find the medicine you are looking for.  So today, I decided to organize the medicine cabinet.  Something about starting a New Year gets me in the mood to organize!  I want everything cleaned and in  place for a fresh start to a new year.  Organizing the medicine cabinet also allows you to read each label and toss out expired medicine.

Instead of just re-sorting the medicine and putting it neatly back on the shelves, I decided to group the medicines together and put them in plastic shoebox containers with labels. 

Here are some before and after pictures:

Before the organization

I took everything out to see what I had, group them together for particular needs, and throw out expired medicine.
The Final Results!  Containers are grouped into categories such as pain relievers, vitamins, first aid, antacids, etc.
