Let’s Look-Medicine Cabinets

Hey There, Friends! Happy Happy Wednesday! Wanna know what kind of week feels extremely long? The week following FOUR BIG SNOW DAYS! haha! It’s absolutely shocking how quickly my body got into the, “we stay up late and we sleep in” mode.

It. Is. Shocking.

Shay and I are coming at you with another dose of Let’s Look in 2023. If you missed my January post where I shared all about how I schedule/keep track of things for our family, you should check it out.

Today we’re peeking inside our MEDICINE CABINETS. I know I’m a broken record with this but just in case someone new is reading, I must say that we’ve been going through a major home remodel that’s REALLY close to being finished. When we moved our kitchen and pantry in, I had an organizer come and help with that part of the process. It’s the heart of the home, after all-right? {E-mail me or comment if you’d like her name and I’ll be happy to send it to you.} One of the biggest things I learned from the organizer is how we shouldn’t get stuck on things going in certain locations just because that’s where they’ve always gone. We should be putting things wherever is the most convenient for how we live. For instance, often times when Britt is getting ready for bed upstairs she’ll notice she needs a band-aid {I’m giving it the side eye, often, but you know what I mean, Moms?}. So instead of every single band-aid having a home downstairs, I have a little pack of band-aids up in her bathroom. Same with me and having a few extra items in my nightstand. I can get a headache if I don’t sleep well the night before, have to stare too long at my cell phone screen, or really pretty much if anyone looks at me funny. I keep that medicine in my nightstand because sometimes I need to take meds right before bed.

I’m saying all that to say that my medicine cabinet used to be a big basket I kept in the kitchen cabinets up high out of the way, but it was a pesky chore to get it down and get to whatever medicine we were looking for. I’m LOVING this system SO MUCH MORE!

This is a drawer in our pantry. It holds a thermometer, a little tub labeled, “I’m Bleeding”, full of band-aids, Neosporin, wrap, another tub labeled, “My Throat Hurts”, with cough drops and sore throat suckers, my eczema lotion, saline solution and a few other items. It’s a low drawer Britt can open, but there’s absolutely nothing in here she could get into and hurt herself or others.

Another view of this little drawer…right there inside the pantry.

I can’t take credit for these tubs, it was ALL Lauren. This holds everything you’d need to patch up a skinned knee. It’s easy to grab and handle the situation.

Same with this tub. Super easy for the kids to see what’s available if they have a sore throat.

It’s holding my Eczema Relief Cream as well as some Lidocaine Patches. A little eczema update…when it got really cold here in North Texas last week my eczema flared up in many new places. I got into my dermatologist and he prescribed two new creams that hopefully will knock it out ASAP! Good news is hot water makes it worse so my family officially knows dishes are on THEM! 🙂

I also have two lazy susans located on upper shelves holding medicine. This particular one has pain reliever, cold medicine, etc.

This is me showing how easy it is to spin and get to exactly what medicine you’re looking for.

This lazy susan has more vitamins, immune boosters, and any overflow meds from the other lazy susan.

So instead of one big basket overflowing with everything medicine related, we now have it more separated and easily accessible.

Thanks so much for reading today, friends! If you blogged about your medicine cabinet, please be sure to link-up with us below.

    Okay….at first, I thought that drawer was your nightstand since you mentioned it in the paragraph above. I was like…she has an “I’m bleeding” bin next to her bed?!?!?! LOL!

    That bin of “I’m bleeding” stuff is such a great idea! And I’ve never seen cough drop suckers before, that’s so great for kids who might otherwise choke. I will need to see if I can find these here.
    Can’t wait to see more of your new house!

    Super random but there is a brand called tubby toad or todd and my friend swears by it for her eczema. It’s marketed for kids but she uses it as an adult.
