Tackle Box Medicine Cabinet

Tackle Box Medicine Cabinet for the on the go Mom

So I don’t know about you but it seems like we are always on the go. Our summers are so busy and hectic between softball, camping, Briden’s soccer games and weekends away that I started taking a tackle box with medicine and small first aid kit with us everywhere. My two little ones always seem to catch whatever crud is going around, stub their toe or bonk an elbow and demand a band aide. I started carrying this tackle box about two years ago and it has been a life saver, because we all know if mom doesn’t have a band aide for the nonexistent boo boo all hell is gong to break loose.


What’s inside

*Rubbing Alcohol

*Hydrogen Peroxide

*Benadryl Itch Cooling Gel

*Children’s Ibuprofen



*Vicks Vapor Rub

*Hydrocortisone Cream

*A&D Ointment

*Pain-A-Trate (Melaleuca brand Icy hot)

*Melaleuca Oil


*Fingernail clippers


*Q-Tips and Cotton Balls

*Band Aides – Princess and Spider-Man

This is so convenient to throw in the truck and have on hand away from the house. Great for on the boat, side-by-side, camping and weekends away!

Also I love having this to give to my mom when she keeps the kids over the weekend; that way she doesn’t have to make any last minute trips town.

Change it up for the Adults

Last year I would swap out some of the items for things an adult may need but I will be making a different tackle box specific for the needs of an Adult.




*Icy Hot

*Valerian Root


*Ace Bandages

*Ice Packs

*Band aides


*Tweezers, Scissors

*Q-tips and Cotton balls

*Antibacterial wipes

    This handy tackle box has been brought to my house on numerous occasions when I have had the privilege of keeping the babies. My first thought years ago was; my daughter thinks I am totally incapable of properly handing the everyday needs of her kids, band-aids, cough syrup, allergies, etc…mind you this tackle box came with a “To Do” list the first time on how I should approach each situation to “calm” the kids…lol…not even kidding! But I must say, the tackle box is extremely handy to have nearby as everything you need is within arms reach..no more searching every cabinet looking for the spider man band-aid, the Tylenol or anything else all the while dealing with a wailing kid who isn’t bleeding, you can’t even see a mark, but the spider man band-aid is going to cure it all! This is genius…all moms, dads, grandmas and anyone else caring for the kids could definitely use one of these!!
