Tips for Organizing a Vitamin Storage System
Are you finding that your vitamin cabinet is a mess? Are you realizing that you can’t even keep track of which vitamins are meant for morning and which you should be taking two or three times a day?
You’re not the only one dealing with that issue. It can be tricky to organize your vitamin storage in a way that makes sense to you.
Lucky for you, we’re here to help! Keep reading to learn all about how to organize your vitamins to optimize time and space.
Use a Pill Organizer
If you have a lot of vitamins that you take, one of the best vitamin storage organizers out there is a pill organizer. Since there are multiple different kinds, you can use the one that works the best for you.
Weekly Pill Organizers
The simplest pill organizer is the weekly organizer. This one is labeled by day, Monday through Sunday.
You can place all of your vitamins into each day of the week that you need to take. However, this works best if you take your vitamins and supplements all at one time on each given day.
AM or PM Organizers
It’s not always as simple as using one pill container since not all vitamins are taken at the same time. With an AM/PM pill organizer, you can organize your vitamins by day and by time.
You have a compartment to place the vitamins you want to take on Monday morning and a different compartment to put your vitamins for Thursday night.
Containers With Times
This type of pill container is the most complex. If you take vitamins at all hours of the day, it is too confusing to use an AM/PM container. You could easily get confused about what time of the afternoon to take which vitamin.
With a pill container with four different times, this won’t be an issue. You can place your vitamins in the morning, lunch, afternoon, or nighttime section. You’ll never have to stare aimlessly at your vitamins trying to figure out what time you should be taking each one!
The pill container does it all for you.
Find Small Plastic Containers for Measuring Different Doses
Not all vitamins have the same recommended doses. For some vitamins, you need to take two pills twice a day, while for others you only need to take one once a day.
Because this can get confusing, using plastic containers to keep track of your different doses can be helpful!
Instead of putting every one of your vitamins into one container, using multiple different plastic containers will allow you to customize how you use your daily vitamin storage.
You can use tiny bottles to separate morning, lunch, afternoon, and evening pills along with the day as well. From there, you can label them to help you remember which bottle is which time of day.
Color Code Your Vitamin Bottles
This can either organize your daily vitamin storage without using something extra or it can streamline the process of organizing.
Buy tiny sticker dots for your vitamins.
Depending on the number of vitamins you take from each pill container, you place that many stickers on top of the bottle. If you are taking them at multiple times of the day, you can separate the sticker dots by line to indicate there are two different times to take them.
If you want to take this even further, you can color code the amount and the time of the pills. For instance, you could use yellow sticky dots for morning time and blue for nighttime.
Using this method is solid on its own, or you can then take it to easily separate out into a weekly pill container without having to read the label each time.
Place Your Vitamin Storage in a Place That Makes Sense
Once you have your vitamin storage organizer figured out, you want to ensure that it is put in a place that makes sense for storage and where it will keep your vitamins fresh.
Although you may think to automatically place it in the bathroom, it may not be the best place. Because of the constant heat and humidity, it may ruin your vitamins.
If you choose to place your vitamins in the kitchen, the same thing applies. You want to make sure they are stored in a place away from heat or hot water (so don’t put them under the sink or under the oven). If possible, storing vitamins, especially softvgels, in the refrigerator is a great way to keep them fresh and to not get sticky!
One of the best places to keep your vitamin storage containers is in your bedroom. With consistent temperatures and relatively consistent lighting patterns, this makes the perfect home for your vitamins.
Get Your Vitamin Storage Cabinet Organized
If you’re finally tired of the mess of cabinet that is your vitamin storage cabinet, it’s time to make a change!
Not only will you have less clutter and less of a mess, but you will also be able to keep track of your vitamins and when you should be taking them. There won’t be any second-guessing and wondering if you actually took them this morning or not!
Whether you choose to color code or use plastic containers to organize, you can’t go wrong!
