I’m actually not sure if this is a “first aid kit” or just a way to organize my mess of first aid components.
I didn’t take a picture of all of this mess under my bathroom sink because, well, ain’t nobody wanna see that! Just know that it was both in and around the designated drawer for first aid things. I also found that I had a full big box of band-aids that I didn’t know I had. So there was more than one reason for creating this First Aid Kit.
- To Organize my first aid stuff.
- To have something quick to grab if we go on a trip or something.
Ok, so I guess there were just two reasons. BUT they are both very good reasons. I do love a good organization project. And we are going down to The Keys this weekend and I figured I can just grab this kit and take it with us, instead of grabbing a few band-aids and the Neosporin. Not like I plan on someone getting hurt, but better safe than sorry.
So as you can see from the picture up top, I had a mess. I also went through the safety kits that I had gotten for Ayden when he was a baby and merged the items with this first aid kit. I separated the items into piles and then got out small zip top baggies (from the craft store) and put the items in the bags.
Maybe one of my favorite parts was to use white mailing labels that I had on hand and a red Sharpie pen and I got to labeling.
Finished product looked like this.
Now I WAS planning on using the diaper wipe container. Because it was white and I WAS going to put a red cross on the top with Washi tape. BUT the stuff didn’t come close to fitting. I could have make a “mini” kit in the wipe container. But that would have defeated the purpose of having everything in one container.
Also, I really wanted to use a fishing tackle box like this…
BUT, I needed to find something that didn’t cause me to spend any money. So I found the basket in my scrapbook room and shoved everything into it. Maybe in the future I can update it to a tackle box. I get way too excited about the separate compartments to NOT have one…one day. Plus the fact that my husband is a fishes and it would just make sense! I will be keeping my eye out for something cheap…err..uh…inexpensive!
