THINGS EVERY MEDICINE CABINET SHOULD HAVE

My medicine cabinet is actually a couple drawers of an old library card catalogue, but it holds the following...
  1. Band-Aids
    Go ahead and get the funny ones with curse words on them, but you might be stuck rifling through the pack for the least inappropriate one to give your niece. ("Balls" could be innocent, right?)
  2. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Motrin)
    I like Tylenol for headaches or fever and Motrin for cramps
  3. Hydrocortisone cream
    For itchy skin like eczema or an irritated patch
  4. Aspirin
    I don't use this often, but keep it on hand in case someone has chest pain concerning for a heart attack
  5. Tums
    For the acid reflux that comes after a yummy, spicy meal
  6. Benadryl
    For allergies and trouble sleeping
  7. Alcohol swabs
    To clean cuts. And also my phone, keys, keyboard, everything!
  8. Saline for eyes
    In case you need to rinse them out
  9. Small scissors
    Because I'm too lazy to walk to the kitchen to get the big scissors just to cut off the annoying tag on the side of my shirt or the loose thread on the waistband of my slacks.
  10. Nail clippers
  11. Tweezers
