Welcome to the Organize Now Challenge!
This week we are focusing on Week 30 in the book, Organize Now! a week-by-week guide to simplify your space and your life.
Organize Your Medicine Cabinet
This week I am featuring Linda of Tapas Lifestyle:
In the chapter, “Organize Your Medicine Cabinet”, Jennifer starts off by stating that this should be a quick and easy week and I agree. Here are some of her tips that I implemented when organizing my medicine cabinet:
Jennifer helps by outlining the following goals:
- Empty your medicine cabinet and toss expired prescriptions and nonprescription medicines
- Keep like items together
- To maximize your space, organize remaining items by height. Move shelves around if necessary
- Once the items are grouped by size, organize them by categories, keeping like things together whenever possible
- Take inventory of the medicine and supplies you have and make a not of any staples you need to purchase
- Make sure all child-proof caps are secure
- A magnetic strip on the inside of a medicine cabinet is a great way to store tweezers, scissors and nail clippers
I wanted to add a little inspiration to the start of my morning, so I used the back side of the door of the medicine cabinet to put inspirational pictures and quotes.

Where do you keep all of your medicine? In the bathroom. kitchen, a bedroom? When is the last time you check for expired medication?
