Re: Medicine Cabinet

Top shelf has bad back relief {warming pads and tiger balm}
Middle shelf is natural remedies for every other ailment
Bottom shelf is first aid, our only conventional meds {children's ibuprofen and visine}, and cloth pads/diva cup.

On the door, I have a natural remedy cheat sheet.

Re: Medicine Cabinet

Don't have a photo but here's what I have:
Top shelf-tweezers, cuticle nippers (I'm slightly obsessed), cuticle scissors for grooming my eyebrows
Second shelf-my toothbrush and toothpaste
Bottom shelf-moisturizer, anti-aging serum, body lotion, heel balm, lip balm

We have a linen closer in the hall just around the corner that holds all f our nail polish and remover, hydrogen peroxide, and meds. The meds are in a small three drawer sterilite container. Top drawer is adult meds (Tylenol,ibuprophen, cough drops, vitamin e), second drawer is kids' stuff(kids Tylenol, kids ibuprophen, honey cough syrup, teething tablets), bottom drawer is first aid stuff (neosporin, band aids, gauze, tape). This closet also holds sunscreen, bug spray, shoe polish, extra lotions and shampoo.

Re: Medicine Cabinet

Medicines, specifically? Or the whole cabinet?

I actually don't worry too much about medicines because I can go buy something if needed. I only keep the basics on hand and we run to the drugstore if something more specific is needed.

tylenol - adult
ibuprophen - adult
childrens tylenol
childrens ibuprophen
cough syrup - adult
cough syrup - childrens
pink eye drops

I actually have more than just this, but it's because we bought it for a previous ailment and still have some. This list is the stuff I make sure we have on hand at all times.

I buy everything else as the need arises. I figure I can find at least one brand on sale at any given time, so only buying it when I need it is more cost effective than buying it at a rock bottom price only to have it sit around. We live near a CVS. If I lived a long way from the nearest store, I might have more on hand.
