Take Two

Posted on August 3, 2011


They say that medicine is still "ok" after expiration dates, but only less effective. That means that instead of "taking two of these and call me in the morning," you might have to take four. I would recommend just tossing it and buying a new one.

Check your medicine cabinet.

You might be surprised at what you find.

Anything that “expired” in 2009?

Go ahead and throw that away.

It’s no good anymore.

Sure, it might have only been used once.

You spent $8 on that children’s cold medicine at 11:00pm because the little one couldn’t sleep.

Then, it got tucked away behind some other stuff.

Then, the next time the child needed cold medicine at 11:00pm you weren’t thinking straight because it was 11:00pm and the child had been whiny so you went to the same store and spent another $8 on some new children’s cold medicine.

Go put it away and what do you find?

The one that was there from before.  It’s not quite expired, so you save it.

Then you forget about it.

So go check your medicine cabinet.

I dare you.
