Works for Me Wednesday- Keeping kids medications organized

With 2 kids under 3 we have quite a bit of little people medical paraphernalia! Bulb syringes, three different types of thermometers, saline drops, Motrin, Tylenol. If it saves my babies one drop of pain, I got it.

We used to keep it with our medicine but then we would have a hard time finding it when we really needed it. ( You know, like at 2:30 in the morning with a screaming child... good times) It was one such instance that we came up with this.....

We grabbed a basket with some side pockets, washable liner and big handle. It can easily sit on our high shelf in our linen closet and pulled anytime the need arises. Everything we could need for a child is right there, included new bottles that has not been opened. If we have a really sick child, we can keep it in their room that night so everything is at hand. And that works for us!!

WOW! I love this. I love that all of your little droppers are in their, too. That's what we can NEVER find. (It's so fun trying to get a 2-y-o to try to "drink" his meds from the cup when you can't find a cleaner dropper-thingy). Where did you find the basket with the cool pockets?
I absolutely want to put one of these together and keep it in my kids' bathroom.
PERFECTION! Thanks for sharing.
