One thing every home needs is a first aid kit. How many times have you gone to grab a bandaid, only to find you used the last one, or you’re out of antibiotic creams? I know it’s happened to me quite a bit. I suggest going through your first aid kit about once a month, and adding any items running low, or missing, to your shopping list. You don’t want to be stuck in an emergency situation and find yourself unprepared.
Now where do you start when putting together a first aid kit? To get you started here is what I keep in ours:
- – bandaids, different sizes
- – gauze
- – gauze tape
- -antibiotic cream
- – vaseline
- – anti-itch cream
- – thermometer
- – tweezers (I still need to buy some new ones)
- – small scissors
- – cotton balls or swabs
- – hand sanitizer
- – any medications your family takes
The last one is where your First Aid kit will differ from others. We don’t have any regular meds to take, but I do like to keep ibuprofen and infants and children’s Pain Reliever in ours.

Great tip! I think we have first aid stuff scattered all over the house : ( Not very good if something major happens! I do have a first aid kit in each of the cars though. At least we are safe in the car : )
I think almost everything you have is what we have in ours – when it's fully stocked. Our children go through band aids like we own stock in them or something!
I really love this. I don't have everything in one spot now and it is such a pain to get everything if we do need something!
We have a few first aid kits but I need to make a large one for the home. I am considering getting a backpack to store it all.
I need to add itch cream to my first aid kit. These mosquitoes are vicious this year!
I think we have what you have–just not so nicely organized. Great post! Thank you for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party, and I have pinned this to the Bloggers Brags board.
