Keep essential meds, tabs and capsules handy in an Altoids tin

I work in an office with a busted aircon. And I have a high stress job. And I love spicy food.

All of this means that at any point in my day I may need either some flu meds, some painkillers for my headache or an Alka seltzer to counter the Tabasco sauce I had with my chili.

I’ve found that an easy for me to keep these items handy, is to use an Altoids tin. The small size and the ability to snap nicely shut and stay out of way, make it perfect for me. ¬†And if I’m honest, I love little Altoids tin projects in any way shape or form.

Store Your Meds in an Altoids Tin

Use an Altoids tin to keep meds handy

Here’s what I have inside my little tin:

  • 2 x Alka Seltzer
  • 2 x Tabcin cold and flu caps
  • 2 x Panadol painkillers
  • 1 x Panadol PM (useful when travelling)
  • 2 x Hydroxycut caps (in case of gym)
  • 1 x Centrum

It’s hand to stick a post-it on the inside of the tin with a list of what you keep inside. This makes it easy to refill your little kit, since you’ll always know what to put in your Altoids tin project.
