Saving Space in the Medicine Cabinet

Save space in the bathroom medicine cabinet cupboard with The Container Store

Last week, my daughter discovered a scratch on her finger. She just needed a tiny bandage for it. So we went into the cupboard in the bathroom to dig through the band aids. I opened box after box, looking for the right size bandage while my daughter had a full fledged “My-finger-is-going-to-fall-off-if-I-don’t-get-a-bandage” meltdown. That was when it occurred to me: I should really sort our bandages by size, rather than by character. With that in mind, I set off to The Container Store.

The Interdesign Med + Organizer from The Container Store

Six dollars later, I had the Med + Organizer by Interdesign. The organizer is slim and acrylic. It’s lightweight, but stable & sturdy and takes up a very small amount of space. Don’t let the small size fool you, this little container can sort a ton of stuff.

I started by going through each box of bandages, sorting out the small, medium & large sizes into separate compartments on the Interdesign organizer. When this was done, I still had space left, so I added in various creams & washes that were previously kept in a small bin on the opposite side of the cabinet. Everything fit perfectly and took up a fraction of the space! Best of all, I can now see easily when we’re running low on a specific size so there isn’t a huge delay in getting those little wounds covered!

How do you sort your kid’s bandages? Size, shape, brand, character or other? I’d love to know!

    It took me a few days to find the right bins, but I did and my medicine cabinet looks so much better!
