The medicine cabinet or box are areas that many people forget to declutter and check items for expiration dates. Let’s make an effort to tackle this area once or twice a year?
Here is our step-by-step process
- Gather all the medicine you have around your home.
- Consider if you still need to keep that medicine.
- Check for expiration dates.
- Categorize them into most used, kids’ medicine, cold medicine, etc.
- Store them in a safe, dry space. Kitchen cabinets and linen closets are ideal spaces. Do not store them in the bathroom since the humidity could damage the medication.
