Last night I needed a bandaid and when I opened my medicine cabinet door they fell out into my hands! This made me realize that I needed to do some rearranging in there. I only keep the essential first aid products in my medicine cabinet and came up with two empty band aid boxes. Then I decided to take a little inventory and realized that my alcohol was not in there so had to find that and put it in where the empty boxes were. What do you keep in your medicine cabinet? Is it only for first aid supplies or do you put other things in it? Do you try to keep it up or forget about it?

I hate to admitit, ctry, but my medicine cabinet is in such bad shape. I throw any and everything in there. There's first aid items, cold medicines, hydrogen peroxide, witch hazel, toothpaste and toothbrushes. I keep telling myself that I am going to organize it, but I have not yet gotten around to doing the actual job.

I use the cabinet beneath my medicine cabinet as a sort of catch all for everything else and that doesn't help much. That's where I really should think about reorganizing.

I'm very careful not to have expired products in my medicine cabinet. I have bandaids of different sizes, and they are the kind already medicated. Just in case I have neosporin as well. As for my actual medicine, I make sure the dates are still right. I don't want anything in there that I don't need.

I use the medicated bandaids too. Since I'm always out of whatever I'm using at the time for medication on a cut it helps a lot.

No medicine cabinet in my bathroom. I have a cupboard with bandages and Tylenol.

I have a first aid box I keep in the kitchen which is full of all kinds of things. Painkillers, bandaids, ointments and salves, cold remedies and bandages. I guess I really should sort it all out and get rid of the old stuff, and restock with the things I really need.

In my medicine box I plenty of medicines loaded in it...!! I have lots of pain killers. Some digestion problem pills. Some cold control pills. Some bandages. Loads of cotton. Blah blah....many more!! You should always have an arranged cabinet to keep you medicines in order..!! otherwise someday in need of them you can get stuck in finding some useful medicines! :)

I actually have two medicine cabinets in the bathroom. The larger one I keep bandaids, guaze bandages, guaze tapes, aspirin, hydrogen peroxide, antibacterial creams, jar of petroleum jelly, cough syrup....gee, just about everything. The smaller one that is over the sink I keep my supply of soaps, nail polish, toothpaste, colognes, cotton swabs--I routinely clean them out all the time so everything is stocked and fresh..that is no outdated aspirin or anything like that
