Day #13 ~ Getting Organized Challenge (The Medicine Cabinet)

January 15, 2011
Today is going to be a super easy challenge, so you can get caught up on the earlier challenges and rest! You have all been working so hard and Im so grateful.  So today we are cleaning out, tossing the expired, and organizing the medicine/stuff in your medicine cabinets only!  How old is your medicine?? I dont keep much medicine in mine… I have a medicine kit (more on that later… hint).
Thanks for joining the challenge. Im so happy you are here.

If you are new to the challenge, click on the button below to see what it’s all about and join in!


I think I have an addiction to organization bins & baskets or maybe its Big Lots, or both! Who knows?  My husband just rolls his eyes when he sees baskets stacked up on the table.  He probably thinks he is married to a crazy lady. I just can’t help myself.


It wasnt too bad.  Just needed organized & cleaned.


I started sticking my voting stickers on the back of my mirror. Dont ask me why!




Some Basic H will take care of that!
All nice and clean now!


I used some organizing baskets from Big Lots for this challenge. They work well in medicine cabinets.


I have a little clinique left, and then I finally get to order my Enfuselle!!


I could not get that orange sticker off! 🙁



Thats it.  Simple challenge!  Now, lets see what your medicine cabinets look like?  If you dont have one, you can organize a drawer in your bathroom today.
Don’t forget to vote today! Just click on the box and your vote is cast!

    Okay…Nat Berkus had a lady on this week who was a little bin crazy…hmmmm…reminds me of somebody…lol NOT really she collected them and just didn’t use them…she liked the IDEA of them but didn’t do the work to get organized 😉 For some reason your posts are not coming up in google reader anymore…did you change your settings? Just wanted to let you know. Thanks, Roberta

    Thanks for all the motivation you have been providing me with. Some days I cant do it on the day you post it but then I try to get caught up. I dont have a vanity so I did a huge cabinet I have under the sink. Wow got rid of a lot and moved all my extras to a basket in the linen closet. I went through all my spices and it looks awesome!!! I also am slowly going through the mess I have in my spare bedroom. Today I wanted to deal with the clothing that was too small for my daughter and thrown in there. All gone now a full back and 1/2 to go to good will. I am off to clean up the clothing in my bedroom.
    Thanks a whole bunch.
    I wish I could post pics but having computer issues.
    Keep up the great work!!!!!
    I love baskets too!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is like seeing Flylady’s group in action! I decided to take your challenge as a visual reminder to check on all those areas I have already tackled and see if it needs a quick tidying up! Thank you for the inspiration! Have a great day!

  8. Great idea!! I have to catch up with everyone on this week’s challenges. We had a huge snowstorm here so it’s been cabin fever with the kiddos….

    Thanks for another great one!

    Toni, I love the bins. So cute! I can’t wait til I get my truck out of the shop and I can get to the stores again! I’m itching to go to Big Lots! At least being stuck at home has enticed me more to get these challenges done. Only 3 to go to get caught up, but they’re big ones in this house. Thanks again for having this challenge and being so inspirational!

  10. Megan says:

    WOOHOO! I am finally all caught up. Had a few days break but im all ready for what you have for us on Monday! Thanks, Megan.
    BTW I love the green bins!

  11. Kelli says:

    I am new to your blog and I love it. This is a great challenge, especially for me right now because I’m cleaning up and cleaning out my home on the quest to be organized!!! Great post…thanks for sharing. Sounds like there’s a trip to Big Lots in my future.

  12. Kelli says:

    Your posts aren’t showing up in my reader either and I signed up for email subscription but I’m not getting anything.

  13. Toni says:

    I’m trying to figure my feed burner out… I don’t have a clue why it’s not giving feeds now. I may have ot start a new feed and have everyone resubscribe… I’ll let you all know soon. 🙂

    Okay ladies. I think my husband fixed feedburner. Please let me know if it’s working for you or not?


  18. Megan says:

    I wish I had seen this a few weeks ago when I tackled my medicine cabinet and drawers without taking photos! I love little baskets… I apparently have had an obsession of buying different eye shadows in the past. Luckily for me, they line up nicely in a little container on one of the shelves. I don’t even use them but am waiting to give them away (they may have been used once or twice, so I’d hate to throw them away).

  19. Toni says:

    Roberta it really does sound like me, but at least I put them to use. 😉

  20. This is such a great series! I’m getting so caught up in reading other people’s links to their projects, I can’t get my own projects done, lol! My medicine cabinets are ok; just went through them a while ago. However, I think the shelves could use a wipe down.

  21. Casey says:

    This looks great! I bought the exact same bins and could not get the stickers off either.

  22. Diane says:

    yes the feed burner is working now.

  23. annesatx says:

    I bought those bins, too — and used Goo Gone to get the stickers off. Worked like a charm!

  24. Carol says:

    Love the long narrow baskets. Never thought to use them in my medicine/bathroom cabinets. I’ll definitely try that one out.

  25. Dawn says:

    Love the green colour of the laundry baskets! Where did you get them?
