Day 105 Check those expiry dates

What is worse than having sunscreen in your home that is past its expiry date? Yes that’s right, medications that are out of date.

I only found one item where I keep regular medications like ibuprofen but I obviously hadn’t checked my first-aid box for some time where I found two bottles of motion sickness tablets (one had expired in 2005) and a tube of antiseptic ointment.

If you have not done so recently go now and check the places that you keep your medications and first-aid supplies and discard any overdue items. Replace these item if they are something you feel you should have on hand at all times but  I would recommend in future (if you don’t already do so) to check these areas on a regular basis perhaps every 6 months.

We have about 50 pictures hanging on the walls in our house and nearly everyone of them is hung by these removeable adhesive hooks/strips. When we leave you will never know anything was every hanging on the walls.
