August Declutter Challenge – Day 26 (Medicinal Cupboard)

. at . 2 comments

I checked out the cupboard with vitamins, meds and pain killers – disposed of 9 bottles.

* 2 bottles from 2004

* 4 bottles from 2005

* 3 bottles from 2006

I put the caps and tops into a container. My daughter is saving these for a friend who is making an art piece with caps and tops from bottles.

It pained me to throw these away, in particular the vitamins (the high cost). But several internet sources said that expired medicinals (especially years expired) can and do turn rancid and/or lose their effectiveness. No sense taking the way-expired pills if they could make me ill and do not good.
