Something every house needs…. How frustrating is it to search the house for a pair of tweezers for a splinter or even a bandage. Everything seems to end up in random draws or cabinets, when you are hurt or injured you want what you need and you want it now! I needed something I could keep all our first aid equipment in that would be organized, as I searched everywhere from CVS to The Container store and everywhere in-between. I still couldn’t find what I was looking for. Then it came to me, a Tackle Box!! A good old fashion fishing tackle box would be the perfect size and easy to store! I went right away to Target and purchased my tackle box… I then went right into the medical section and purchased everything from smash ice packs that don’t need to be kept in the freezer to emergency tooth ache medicine. You never know what could happen and when bad things do they always seem to happen at a late hour. No one wants to head out to CVS at midnight for a toothache or minor wound. I’m so Excited for my first aid kit, Ralph always laughs when he comes home and sees me organizing it! Here are some pictures of our “Homemade” make shift first aid kit!! 

What you will need:    (I fit all of this and then some!) 
·  first-aid manual
·  sterile gauze pads of different sizes
·  adhesive tape
·  adhesive bandages in several sizes
·  elastic bandage
·  a splint
·  antiseptic wipes
·  soap (I bought a travel purel)
·  antibiotic ointment
·  antiseptic solution (like hydrogen peroxide)
·  hydrocortisone cream (1%)
·  acetaminophen and ibuprofen
·  extra prescription medications (such as Dramamine because I cannot go on a boat or ride without it!!)  
·  tweezers
·  sharp scissors
·  safety pins
·  disposable instant cold packs
·  calamine lotion
·  alcohol wipes or ethyl alcohol
·  thermometer
·  plastic non-latex gloves (at least 2 pairs)
· mini flashlight and extra batteries I also put a mini magnifying glass because sometime you cant even see the splinter!)
·  mouthpiece for administering CPR (can be obtained from your local Red Cross or Milford Hospital will give you one)
·  Also print out how to do cpr and tape it to the back of the inside of your first aid kit….You Never know when you are going to need it. 

I have added lots of other little things that I always seem to need and can never find such as Airborne and even a tide to go stick. I have some medicine in the first aid kit but I’m now working on our Home Medicine Kit so I’m sure everything will be organized according to need.
