How to Store Medication
Macy: All right, Clean House fans, here’s an organizing tip from the Yard Sale, Diva, Trish Suhr. Trish—
Macy: When it comes to storing medication in the house, what do we need to know about that?
Trish: That’s a great question Macy. Well, the most important thing is to check your expiration dates. Make sure you get the once out that are no longer something you want to be using. Separate your over-the-counter from your prescriptions. And keep your prescriptions that you’re currently using away from the ones that you kind of having your rotating in and out.
Also, make sure they are stored in a cool, dry place. And you want to make sure they are out of the reach of children and animals. And I like to make sure the ones that I use on a daily basis are accessible to just me maybe possibly a container that marked Monday through Friday, all the way through, your seven-day pill containers so that you have them ready to go. What’s most important is that you know the life of your medicines not anyone else.
