Many of you probably already know that I do photography on the side. I usually just do it for friends and family that want a special occasion documented. I look forward to capturing moments for these special people in my life and hope that I can deliver images that perfectly preserve their memories. I had a friend ask me if I would be able to photograph her wedding this past summer and I was so excited to be there on her special day! The wedding took place in San Diego so I had to make sure to pack everything I needed. While packing I quickly grabbed some Excedrin® from my medicine cabinet because Excedrin® delivers fast headache relief and I tend to get headaches often. When we got there, I went to bed all ready for the big day ahead. It was going to be a full day of capturing every one of the beautiful moments involved in their wedding day. However, I woke up the next morning with a throbbing headache. I was so upset that on the day I really needed to be prepared and ready to go that I had a terrible headache. I knew normal pain relievers wouldn’t do the job so I didn’t even bother. When my husband and I got in the car to drive a half hour to the wedding I was feeling so discouraged and was already wishing the day was over. I went to look for my lipgloss in my purse and that’s when I found the Excedrin® I had thankfully packed! I seriously could’ve cried I was so happy! It was exactly what I needed and knew I could trust Excedrin® for fast headache relief. Headaches demand a solution, and this was the perfect one!

I opted for using Excedrin® Extra Strength (for handling those everyday headaches also known as tension type headaches) because for some, relief can happen as quickly as 15 minutes from the time you take it and I needed this relief fast! Sure enough, by the time we made it to the wedding I was feeling much better and ready to go! Everything went so smooth and I was so happy that I remembered to pack my Excedrin® Extra Strength. Excedrin Extra Strength is indicated for tension-type headaches. I felt like I could really use all my energy on being creative and getting the best images possible for the happy couple. I didn’t feel my headache for the entire span of the day and it made it so much more enjoyable. While Excedrin® Extra Strength came in handy for this special occasion, I also usually have Excedrin® Migraine on hand. Excedrin® Migraine is indicated for migraines. I’ve been getting migraines once in a blue moon since I was in high school. When one hits, I’m down for the count. When I found Excedrin® Migraine I was so happy I found a solution for my migraines that demand a solution. It usually begins to work about 30 minutes in and is such a lifesaver for me! *Disclaimer: Among OTC medicine for migraines. Symphony Health Solutions, 2016.Consult your doctor if you think you are suffering from migraines. I found both of these products very easily at my local Walmart. They were stocked with several different  Excedrin® choices and varieties.

Now let’s talk about how you can avoid the medicine cabinet mess. How many of you have needed some form of medicine in the middle of the night, or even the middle of the day, only to realize you can’t find it in your medicine cabinet?? I know I have! The worst part is I end up finding it another day when I’m looking for something else! Our medicine cabinet has always been unorganized and somewhat stressed me out. I never kept tabs on when things expire and there was no rhyme or reason to what it looked like. So, I’m going to share with you some of the ways I have managed to keep our medicine area more organized now.

  1. Find the right way to store it! I know, seems so simple right? Well it took me way too long to figure out I didn’t actually need an entire cabinet dedicated to medicine, I just needed a good amount of space for the container I put it in. When we moved into a place with less cabinets, I went to find the perfect bin to hold all my medicine I could store on a shelf. I ended up finding a shower caddy for about $3 from my local Walmart. What I love about it is the size (not too big or small), the different compartments for better organization, and the handle to easily carry to the person in need. There are several other options of bins out there, just find the perfect one for you!
  2. Keep that Caddy organized! Whether this requires making labels, using a permanent marker to write expiration dates, creating a specific time to update or clean it out, or just simply making better use of your space… make sure you are keeping it organized to your liking! I personally like to keep my pain relievers on one side, liquid medicine on the other, miscellaneous in another compartment (heartburn, allergy, cough drops, etc..), and kid medicine in the last compartment. So far this has worked well for us! We tend to go through medicine quick enough to not have to throw anything out.
  3. Only buy medicine you know works! Throw out the others! Make sure to keep Excedrin® on hand for any moment you need fast relief from your headaches! It’s the worst when a medicine cabinet stacks up with things no one even uses. Save your pennies in other areas and only purchase what you truly need.


I’m so glad I was able to save an important day with Excedrin®. When was a time you could’ve used it??

All my love,

  1. Ugh, it's so horrible when a headache comes on like that before an important event. Glad you got relief! {client}

  2. After all, it is the place where you store all your kitchen requirements. If you are very particular about what to keep where and strictly follow an order in the kitchen, then it is best-recommended that you give it a lot of thought before finalizing a particular structure.Contractors Today
