DIY Medicine Storage


Yes, one more item which involves recycling a carton in to something useful.

Right from tylenol to other prescription drugs which my husband and I use are stored in a kitchen container placed on top of our refrigerator. As most of these capsules and tablets come in strips, rather than in bottles, I had to change the way these medicines were stored.

A small but sturdy delivery carton from amazon along with cardboard strips and glue did the trick.

Things which I used:

  1. Carton and cardboard strips
  2. Glue
  3. Box cutter
  4. A pair of scissors
  5. Clear tape
  6. Colour paper



Step 1: Cut the top flaps off the carton.

Step 2: Measure and cut cardboard strips to serve as partitions/ dividers inside the box. Paste them inside the box using glue.



Step 3: Make a further partition or divider (as I needed to store smaller strips which may fall inside the bigger space and be difficult to get them out)

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 as many times as the number of partitions you need.


Step 5: Wrap the outside of the box using colour paper.


Step 6: Store the medicines in an organised way and for easy access too!
