Vitamin and Medicine storage

My closest friends and family will tell you that I love organization. I thought for the longest time that I could be on the show, Clean Sweep--not as the one that needs help (although I do have clutter problems now and then), but to help those people clean things out! It's one of those things that I like doing to relax or need a break from more tedious tasks.

For a while I was getting a little annoyed by our vitamin and medicine box. We keep this in a cupboard in the kitchen so that we can take these when we eat. You see, Q and I have vitamins from the same company, so they look so much alike from the top. I'd lift one out and find out that it wasn't mine, but his. I'd do this a few times until I found my own. Then, it hit me--why not label the tops of the bottles to save time? I used a black permanent marker and wrote our initials on the lids. I've been doing this for a few months now, and it's been great! There are some medicines that Q takes that are diabetes-related. Most of the time, I don't have prescription meds, but when I do, I label those as well.

How do you organize your supply of vitamins and medications? I would love to hear your ideas. I love organization at its best!
