Spring Cleaning – Organizing Medicines in totes

step 4 (1)

Do you ever wonder how to store and organize all the medicines in the household? We have cold/cough medicines, stomach medicines, flu medicines, aspirins and kids medicine and the “bad” thing about being a couponer is you nomally have a lot of everything!  I normally store all of my medicines on the top shelf of my linen closet in a very unorganized manner but now we’re in Spring Cleaning mode so it’s necessary to sort, purge and organize.  I went to Target last night and purchased a few adorable red totes that were on clearance for just $2.87 to use for my organization.
