Medicine Organization

"Bins bins bins!" This is a common phrase in the organizational world. The idea is to get bins to compartmentalize everything and all will be well. But alas, that is not always the case.

I decided to put all of my medicine in a bin, so it would all be in one place. It looked neat when I first arranged it, but the more I used it the messier it got. Until eventually, I realized this was not going to work:

Basically, bins only work for larger items. Smaller items need to be compartmentalized WITHIN themselves for there to be any organizational aspect. So I got this:

The 3 sections allow the medicines to stay in place rather than topple over if I try to grab one thing. The labels I made are (1) Sprays, drops and gels, (2) Oral medication, and (3) Skin treatment. You can use whatever suits you best!

For the labels, I used some fun, colorful washi tape. It just jazzed up the plain box a bit, and was super easy! Personally, I know that if I'm feeling under the weather, bright colors and an organized space will make me feel heaps better! :)

As for the larger items such as hydrogen peroxide and rubbing alcohol, I kept them in the large bin I had all my medicine in earlier. With just a few large items in it rather then many tiny ones, the bin remains neat and tidy behind this organizer.

What are some tips you have for organizing medicine?
