Stulpen Part 2 and Pills (not the wooly ones)
In the non-wooly pill department, I wanted to share a simple thing I do that makes my mornings better. Behold my pill box:
I take a couple of prescription meds and some OTC supplements; combined with usual my morning blurriness, I've been known to take my medicine twice, not at all, inaccurately, or incompletely. The pill box, though labeled for a week of AM and PM doses, holds 2 weeks' worth for me. It takes moments to take my pills (no more opening/closing multiple bottles) and I can see at a glance if I took today's pills. I've tried several types of pill boxes, and this one is my current favorite because it is roomy, well made, and cheap ($1 at Dollar Tree). One small drawback is that the doors can get in the way during loading, so I use 4 clothespins to hold the doors up back-to-back. Another, and this is extremely minor, is that half the time, the days of the week are in reverse order!
