Kitchen Tip Tuesday, organize your medicine and vitamins!

So I am sure some of you are wondering why this would be a kitchen tip. Well, because we keep our medicines and vitamins in the kitchen. Some people keep them in the bathroom, but I personally like them here because it is easy to get a glass of water to take your medicine with.

I also keep them in the cabinet above the sink out of reach of little hands. I have been needing to organize these for some time. I had them in a large shoe box which I just took down and picked out the medicine I needed. This got to be a little crazy and time consuming searching for what I needed.

So below is the picture of what the cabinet looks like now. My mother will be so proud.

I have the bigger medicines and vitamins in the basket. I labeled the drawers with allergy relief, acid relief, pain relief and so on.

Lest you think I am an organizing queen (I know you were thinking it, ha!), here is my project for next week - the other side of this cabinet:

This would be my dish washing, kitchen cleaning utensil basket. I'm not quite sure what I am going to do with it yet, but feel free to offer any suggestions!

  1. Thanks for checking out my menu. I think this is a great idea. We've always kept our vitamins and medicines in the kitchen as well. I don't know why. It's just always felt to me like they should be there as well. Makes sense in my head.

  2. We keep our meds in the kitchen too!

    ...and in the bathroom....and in a drawer in our bedroom...and in my purse....

    Lol, our system needs some tweaking! Or a complete overhaul!

  3. I do mine just the same way! I have them in the small cabinet above our stove and in little baskets to keep them organized.

    I love having them in the kitchen too!

  4. It looks nice. I went through and organized my meds and vitamins about a year ago. I need to do it again. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I never thought to use the mini drawers! Great idea! I have mine in a variety of baskets. Then any extras are in clear tubs stacked at the back of my linen closet.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. We keep our medicine in the kitchen also! I heard it is a better place to keep them. And it saves us tons of room for our stockpile of soap in the bathroom!


I love comments!
