Tackle it Tuesday

I've been reading 5 Minutes for Mom for at least a few months now. They have some great contests there as well as some regular helpful features.

Tuesdays are called "Tackle it Tuesday" there and I usually read and think, "wow these women have a lot of energy," close the page and move on.

Today I actually did something. And I encourage you to do the same if you haven't really looked lately.

I cleaned out the medicines that we've had stockpiled. I threw away a plastic grocery bag full of expired medicine. Honestly, some of it expired in 2005.

Let me add a disclaimer: I ALWAYS check expiration dates on medicine before giving it to my children or taking it myself. But obviously some of the medicine I'd bought hadn't been used in quite some time.

So go clean out your old medications...you might be surprised at all the storage space you open up!

Good tackle and great advice. I have found in our medicine cabinet prescriptions from at least 3 years ago. It's amazing how medicine can get pushed back in the cabinet and forgot about.

Boy, I'm nesting here but not that nesting. But our meds are up-to-date though.

Still have to put the baby clothes away. UGH!!
