Tackle It Tuesday – The Medicine Cabinet!

I know I’m not alone….my medicine cabinet could be renamed the useless, expired stuff cabinet! I have cold medicine in there that I must have bought 5 years ago and about a million hotel size shampoos and conditioners. I have an old toothpaste tube with maybe 1 milligram of paste. I have 3 hair rubberbands – 1 which has seen better days! I have much, much more…

 This morning I took everything out. Sorted by type..medicines, shampoos, tweezers…and threw out 6 expired medicines, 1 hair rubberband, tweezers that looked rusty (eek!) and that old toothpaste. I, in a very organized manner, placed the items in the medicine cabinet and VIOLA!!!

Be a smart mommy, and clean out your cabinet!!! It’s a great process to go through once a quarter to make sure you are out with the old, and know to purchase the new!

See you tomorrow! I have at least 2 recalls to list from the Consumer Protection Safety Commission!

    Great job! My teenager loves to do this for me. He’s great at noticing expired dates on everything from food to drugs to cleaning products 🙂

    I just did this job not too long ago and threw out sooooo much stuff. I couldn’t believe how much stuff expired. Does the stuff only last for 2 weeks or what??!

    Great tackle!

    You’re right, this is an important job! It’s amazing how old stuff gets and we leave it sitting in our cabinet! 😀
