Day 13 - Medicine Cabinet

Today sure was an easy one, thank goodness since it was me against the kids!  Sometimes it is truly a wonder how any mom can get anything done when they have little ones on their heels.  Guess that's why we wear a cape under our clothes.

So here is the pitiful before of the bathroom on our main level, right off the kitchen:


So I began going through everything and checking expiration dates.  I also decided it would be best to group items together and take what I could out of it's original box, especially the adult cold medicine.  We go to the same medication every time we get a cold (Nyquil, Dayquil, Sudafed) therefore we really didn't have any use for the packaging.

In came my velveeta boxes again.  This medicine cabinet is shallow and these boxes fit perfectly!  I covered them with scrapbook paper and added some labelling on a couple of the boxes.


You will notice some of the creams on the second shelf are in the plastic cup that comes with your laundry detergent.  I love using these to corral small items in tight spaces too!

Right- After
Open space!  The top has eye care supplies, middle shelf is our first aid section for cuts and scrapes, bottom holds bigger items.  Since we live in a 3 story home, it's easier to have some of our necessities in this bathroom and saves us a trip up and down the stairs if we forget to de-stink-ify ourselves! Would hate to work up a sweat before we can get our deodorant on. :)

And there you have it.  Nothing grand, but I got rid of a TON of outdated medications and gained some much needed space.  A little order in the bathroom.  Now I'm off to continue with the laundry room.  Almost done!  As soon as a few goodies arrive in the mail, I can present you with the final reveal.

Have a great weekend!

Using the velveeta boxes is a clever solution! Great job.
