Moving the Medicine Cabinet

Really, it was quite funny! Jen from IHeart Organizing posted on storing medication the EXACT same day that I did. I LOVE Jen's blog - always have, always will!! :)

Jen's post had some great advice from pharmacist, Mellissa C. Here's a little of the post... "...drugs need to be stored in an area where there is low humidity and stable temperature {room temp, never above 77 F}"

and more that Mellissa writes, which totally stuck out at me... "Now where should you store your medication?  I recommend either your bedroom or your kitchen (but not in cabinets around the stove or the refrigerator because of the heat generated by these appliances)"... read the full post HERE.

Now, I was doing something right, by storing the medicine in the kitchen! Yahoo!! See y'all, it really is good to have medication in the kitchen, vs. the bathroom.  However, the part that stuck out to me, is the part of WHERE in the kitchen the meds. should NOT be.  Not in cabinets around heat generating appliances .... Hmmm, guess where I just moved my medicine cabinet . . .
In the cabinets above my wall oven.  So the very first thing I did, the day after reading Jen's post, was move the medicine cabinet. I had to change the baskets too, as my red baskets ended up being too big for the new place. Not a big deal ... I re-used them.

My new medicine cabinet is now in the cabinets above my Kitchen Command Center Desk. (the bins that hold my batteries, flashlights, candles, etc. were moved to an empty cabinet to the right of the desk.)
Here is my NEW medicine cabinet:
This space works just great.
The baskets are from the Dollar Tree
View my medicine cabinet labels in my Etsy Shop.
I was excited to clear the space above my wall oven, because, originally I wanted my paper tableware to be stored in  those cabinets. NOW it is. I'll show you that soon.
