Kitchen organization

Organized Medicine Cabinet

We all have problem areas in our homes.  Some more than others.  Who doesn’t hate opening a cabinet or cupboard and having something fall out on your head? Or opening a door and spending 20 minutes looking for something? I recently made a list of areas that I would like better organized and decided to start with our medicine cabinet.

I have this cute little skinny cabinet in my kitchen just above my sink. Even thought it’s adorable and all, it makes me crah-ha-razy because I cannot fit anything kitchen related inside of it.

No worries- I discovered it was a great little place to stash all the family medications. Problem is, it’s messy and unorganized.

A recent trip to Ikea revealed these cute little boxes that just so happen to be the perfect fit.

I wanted to personalize them a bit so I covered the front in yellow chevron patterned wrapping paper.

Next I used my old school labeler to describe each box.

To organize our stash of meds I divided everything into three categories: cold medicine, stomach & allergy, and Ibuprofen & Tylenol.

It’s now so much easier to find what I am looking for, and I love the surprise pop of color every time I open the cupboard!
