Years ago while struggling in the middle of the night to find one little bottle of anti-nausea medicine I decided it was time to rethink how our meds were stored. This came on the heels of being woke up several time by DH who couldn't seem to find the Benadryl to combat hives or a teenage son desperately seeking an Aleve following a sports injury. As most of us do I began combing the aisles looking for just the right container, box or bin to organize these meds in. Nothing on the container aisles would work so I gave up and continued my shopping which lead me to the home improvement department for sandpaper. There it was, a box with 16 individual pull out drawers intended for the storage of various nails, bolts, screws and washers. It was perfect. I took all of these drawers and filled them with meds and wrote the exp. date using washable marker on the front and labeled each drawer.
Now there is no more sifting through 30 bottles and boxes to find what we need, when we need it day or night.
