I LOVE to Organize!

I did it again...I started just cleaning and ended up...well, it WAS needed. You see, we have our family first aid kit (I never wanted medicine cabinets in the bathrooms...six kids, four of whom are boys...just seemed like a recipe for a disaster, or memorization of Poison Control phone number) in our pantry. I watched a presentation years ago at Relief Society Homemaking Meeting in Glendale 4th Ward (see, a looooonnnngg time ago!)during which part of their preparedness was their first aid kit in a nice Plano tackle box. I was fascinated and did my best to imitate it, albeit on a smaller scale. It worked for years, until the box broke. We got another box a few years ago at a yard sale, and the latch broke almost immediately. So, we have had this box that you have to lift the whole thing out of the pantry, and it is mixed up (Nathan simply CANNOT put a used bandaid wrapper in the trash! He must make a next of empties in the first aid kit!) So, I decided to rememdy that. Having not been able to locate a fishing box in umpteen yard sales, and since my boys' stocking gift from me last Christmas was a new box for each of them, complete with the start of fillings, I got us a fantastic box. Plus, I got a smaller box for Kayty's diabetic stuff (glucagon needle, needles, insulin, test strips, keto test strips, etc.) I labeled the contents (Nathan...look at the labels, please!) and now it is just a dream! I sure wish I could find a job as an organizer...That would be a dream come true!!!
