|Medicine bins with stuff just tossed carelessly in a drawer|
I decided to begin with the medicine bins. I really liked my bins on the left for my first aid, creams, and sun care products but the computer labels just seem to date me so I switched them out with…
|New laminated computer labels held on by packing tape!|
…ahh. Just that minor change already made things so much better.
Next, I went through all the medicine drawers, tossed expired prescriptions and over the counter drugs. I then took what was left and put them into spice jars. Remember, how I said that I was organizing 3 rooms at once? Well, I was having trouble with this spice rack in my kitchen because my measuring spoons wouldn’t fit through the openings. I didn’t really want to get rid of it, so when I saw a need for better organization in the medicine closet, I thought, “why not?”
Once I placed all the medicine in the spice jars, I created some simple computer labels which I laminated and super glued to the tops of the jars. It is now super easy to see everything I have in stock. In addition, I provided a spot to write the expiration date with an expo marker so there should be no more expired medicines in my cabinet. Yeah!

So, how do you make your home more inviting to your guests? Any tips? Do you put a mint on their pillows before arriving or an extra Bible by their nightstand? Do you light a candle in the living room or make sure you’ve picked up the toys before the doorbell rings? How do you exhibit hospitality in your home?
