Yours doesn't have to be as fancy as the ones above...I personally like mine pretty, but I like pretty. These will do...It works...it's labeled..It is organized....You don't have to spend an arm and a leg on baskets...but remember, you can often get great ones at the dollar store, Walmart or a discount store like Tuesday Morning...
Here are a few tips:
1. Set aside some time where little ones will not be able to get into medicines
2. Clean off a countertop or surface where you can work..give yourself some space
3. Remove all medicines from closet or drawers..don't forget to search the rest of the home
4. Go thru meds, purge those that are expired, leaking or not able to close properly
5. Sort the meds that are left
6. Make a note of the meds that you need to purchase to have a current, stocked closet
Think cold, cough, daytime, night time, fever, pain, bandaids, antibiotic ointment, tummy aches, etc
7. Make a note of how many "types" of bins or baskets that you need..
8. Dispose of Prescription and OTC medications properly..here is a link to help
9. Then the most fun...purchase number of containers needed ( i'd get 2 extra), label and organize!
10. Try to always return medicines to their proper home..you'll be glad you did at 2a.m. when you're looking for Motrin for Johnny's fever!
Yep, you'll check out your med closet every time you walk by it for awhile...just like any other space you get organized and pretty-fied!
Hope this helps, Ya'll!
