Being a pharmacist, I am adamant about keeping your and your children’s medicine cabinets organized. As a mom, I know that is a hard job but today Real Simple experts are giving us some tips for doing so.


The first tip is to prioritize what you use as the most important. Don’t put a large alcohol bottle or some other random cream “front and center”. You want the things you need the most at your finger tips when you need them. This would include band aides, antibiotic cream, aspirin, tweezers, etc


I love this tip about putting things that roll or fall around your cabinet into small compact canisters. If you don’t want cotton balls or q-tips hogging up your sink counter space, put them away in the medicine cabinet.


This is a cool idea to make kits of things you need. Put Band aides, ointment and tape together in a section. Children’s fever reducers, dropper, and thermometer in its own section, etc.


This I must do ASAP. Adjust the heights of your shelves in the cabinet so it can fit the things you need like toothpaste, toothbrush, makeup brushes, bottles, etc.

Also you can check out the Real Simple’s experts checklists for what you need to keep on hand in your medicine cabinet for those unexpected emergencies.
