My daughter was cut by a knife the other day while unloading the dishwasher. Somehow the knife had fallen out of the dishwasher and by the grace of God only sliced a small cut on her ankle. When I heard the kids yell downstairs about what happened I ran up the stairs two risers at a time praying that the knife was not stuck in her foot.
After examining the cut, I cleaned her up and bandaged her wound.
Because I had already created a first-aid area in my kitchen, everything I needed was right there.
Once my daughter was bandaged up I decided to go through my first aid supplies and organize them. After a quick check, I realized I was running low on Band-Aids and headed to Sam’s Club to replenish our supply.
I bought the BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages with QUILTVENT® Technology and a few other items we were running low on. I chose the ones with Quiltvent technology because they are designed to allow air to get to the wound while still allowing it to heal.
When the kids have boo-boo’s I’m always careful to check them to make sure they are not staying moist under the bandage. These BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages with QUILTVENT® Technology should help with that. They were $0.06 per band-aid so a pretty good value for something that will help me better treat my children’s wounds.
While at Sam’s Club I saw a pre-made first-aid kit and decided to use it as a guide for creating mine.
Once I got home I gathered everything I’d needed to have in a First-Aid Kit for proper wound care and decided to move it all to the kitchen.
I then cleared out the cabinets and organizing what was already in there.
Next I started combining any and everything I could.
Once I got everything categorized, I sorted into baskets. I didn’t break down the boxes or Band-Aids and combine them with the wound care products in the black basket for two reasons.
- Band-Aids are used more often in our house for minor boo-boo’s and I don’t want to have to pull out the black basket each time theirs a boo-boo.
- Finding the Band-Aids will be easier for the kids since they are in their own spot in the cabinet.
After getting everything into baskets, I found homes on the shelves for them and below is the finished project.
I’m really happy about the result and feel like I’ve created a family friendly First-Aid cabinet that my family can really use.
