When I first did this subtraction I was shocked at how much of the medicine I had on hand in my medicine cabinet in case of an emergency was actually expired.

Subtract expired medications, anything with a puncture in it, old prescription medications (Google for a recycling program in your area or drop them off at your local police station for proper disposal), and organize bandages by size.

Subtract the stress of running to the drugstore by having the following things at the ready in your Medicine Cabinet:

  • Pain Relievers: Tylenol (acetaminophen), Aspirin, Aleve (naproxen) and Advil (Ibuprofen) each type is good for different types of pain so it’s good to have at least two on hand.
  • Allergic reaction relief – topical and oral doses. Keeping children’s versions of these is good practice. 
  • Decongestant – both daytime and nighttime.
  • Digestive aids – Tums, Imodium and something for constipation.
  • Bandages, antiseptic, antibiotic cream, pain relieving burn gel.
Are your kids in school? I recommend having a lice kit on hand…you don’t want to run to the store when you need it most.
Interested in an essential oil based medicine cabinet – I suggest talking to my friend Nicole. Post a comment to this post and I’ll put you in touch.  Note that some essential oils DO expire (I personally use Young Living Essential Oils and they do not expire) – so make sure you check your supply.
