Medicine cabinets are wonderful things, but they tend to be clutter collectors. We regularly add new items, but rarely go through and take stuff out. The good news, this is a quick little project that is both visually rewarding and good for your health. Perfect for a cold or rainy day.
Begin by taking everything out. As you remove each item, check the expiration date. If it is expired, set it aside for disposal. Otherwise, group like items together. Once the cabinet is empty, wipe it out.
Reload the items you want to keep. If things topple over, you can get small containers that fit inside of medicine cabinets. Also, note any expired or old items you might want to replace.
Expired medication should not go into the trashcan or into the toilet. Instead, bag it up and drop it off for safe disposal. Many police stations now offer this service, as well as pharmacies.
