Today I did another New Year declutter. This time it was checking my First Aid kit which I have two of, one for my business, and one for personal family use. I went through old medications and out of date products and have put the medications to one side for safe disposal at a pharmacy.
In my first aid kit are quite a complementary health items like various herbs so I went through and threw anything that was past its best away.
It’s also a good idea to check your First Aid kit to see if anything needs restocking or needs finding as its been put down elsewhere. With my business one I check that quite regularly; when I was at university this past year one of my student jobs in the osteopathy clinic was to do a weekly check of the First Aid kit there. However, it’s easy to forget the personal use one and often other family members use things in it such as a plaster or an antiseptic wipe without telling me.
It also reminded me that I also need to renew my First Aid certificate soon.
When was the last time you checked your household or car First Aid kit?
